Alexis Pepin and Ben Duffy each scored in the shootout Sunday as the P.E.I. Rocket defeated the winless Sherbrooke Phoenix 5-4 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Jimmy Oligny, with a goal and an assist, Pepin, Matej Beran and Victor Provencher scored in regulation for P.E.I. (5-2-0), while Duffy added three assists.

Maxim Lagace gave up four goals on 17 shots for the Rocket before being replaced by Antoine Bibeau, who stopped 10 shots the rest of the way.

Brent Turnbull, Carl Neill and William Couture each had a goal and an assist for Sherbrooke (0-7-1), while Vincent Richer also scored. Simon Desbiens picked up three assists for the Phoenix, who got 24 saves from Jack Flinn.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Blaineville-Broisbriand 4, Quebec 2; Rimouski 2, Shawinigan 1; and Val-d'Or 7, Cape Breton 3.

At Sherbrooke, Que., Beran scored 1:29 into the game to give P.E.I. an early lead.

The Phoenix tied the game just over four minutes later on Turnbull's goal, then Couture scored in the final minute of the period for a 2-1 advantage.

Sherbrooke appeared to be on its way toits first victory of the season after goals by Richer and Neill in the second made it 4-1.

But the Rocket struck back with two power-play goals from Provencher and Pepin, then Oligny added another with the man advantage in the third to send the game to the eventual shootout.

Armada 4, Remparts 2

At Boisbriand, Que., Tommy Giroux had a goal and two assists as the Armada (6-1-1) handed league-leading Quebec (7-1-0) its first loss of the season.

Oceanic 2, Cataractes 1

At Shawinigan, Que., Frederik Gauthier scored twice to lead Rimouski (5-1-1) past the Cataractes (2-4-1).

Foreurs 7, Screaming Eagles 3

At Val-d'Or, Que., Anthony Mantha had a hat trick as the Foreurs (2-5-0) powered past Cape Breton (2-4-3).

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
