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

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
