QMJHL Roundup: A look at Sunday's games

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.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
