QMJHL Roundup: A look at Saturday's games

Alexis Loiseau's shootout goal completed the rally as the Rimouski Oceanic defeated the host Shawinigan Cataractes 4-3 on Saturday afternoon in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

The Oceanic (2-0-0) trailed 3-0 midway through the second period, but goals from Peter Trainor, Loiseau and Francis Beauvillier tied the game and forced overtime.

The shootout was scoreless through three rounds before Loiseau scored the winner in the fourth.

Danny Sylvestre, Peter Sakaris and Dylan Labbe each scored for the Cataractes (0-1-1) while JC Campagna chipped in with two assists.

Philippe Desrosiers started in goal for Rimouski but was pulled midway through the second period after allowing three goals on eight shots. Carl Hozjan came on in relief and picked up the victory by stopping all 19 shots he faced.

Shawingian goaltender Marvin Cupper made 38 saves, and earned the game's first star, despite picking up the loss.
