QMJHL Roundup: Titan's power play leads as Acadie-Bathurst drops Sea Dogs 3-1

SAINT JOHN, N.B. - The Acadie-Bathurst Titan's power-play unit made all the difference in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League's season opener.

Raphael Lafontaine and Brandon Hynes both scored on the man advantage Thursday as Acadie-Bathurst topped the reigning QMJHL champion Saint John Sea Dogs 3-1.

Robert Davis opened scoring for the Titan (1-0-0) in the first period, while Jacob Brennan made 26 saves for the win. Lafontaine and Hynes scored in the second.

Stephen MacAulay had a power-play goal for Saint John (0-1-0) and goaltender Sebastien Auger stopped 26 shots.

There was a special pre-game ceremony in honour of the Sea Dogs' 2012 President Cup win, as Saint John raised the QMJHL championship banner to the rafters of the arena.
