Matteau's power-play goal the difference as the Armada edge the Voltiguers 2-1

BOISBRIAND, Que. - Stefan Jr Matteau's power-play goal at 15:54 of the first period stood up as the game winner as the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada edged the visiting Drummondville Voltiguers 2-1 on Wednesday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

Cedric Paquette also scored for the Armada (4-0-1) and added an assist for a two-point outing.

Jeremie Malouin scored his fourth goal of the season for the Voltiguers (3-2-0).

Etienne Marcoux stopped 23-of-24 shots for the win as Domenic Graham made 24 saves in a losing effort.

Blainville-Boisbriand went 1-for-3 on the power play while Drummondville failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Paquette opened the scoring at 14:18 of the first period.

Matteau scored on the power play less than two minutes later to give the Armada a 2-0 lead heading into the first intermission.

Malouin cut Blainville-Boisbriand's lead in half at 4:33 of the second period, but that was as close as Drummondville could get as Marcoux stopped everything else he faced through the final 35 minutes.

Quote of the Day

It is really special. I had a lot of friends and family here tonight, and for my first [NHL] game in here it was great. I played here as an elementary-school player in the city championships and this was my first time back. It was a lot of fun.
