QMJHL Roundup: A look at Wednesday's games

Antoine Bibeau made 22 saves Wednesday as the P.E.I. Rocket shut out the Saint John Sea Dogs 4-0 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Louick Marcotte and Ben Duffy each had a goal and an assist for the Rocket (6-2-0), while Victor Provencher and Josh Currie also scored.

Sebastien Auger made 29 saves for Saint John's (4-4-0) in the loss.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Val-d'Or 7, Cape Breton 2; Halifax 5, Moncton 1; Rouyn-Noranda 5, Acadie-Bathurst 4; Baie-Comeau 4, Victoriaville 3; and Sherbrooke 6, Voltigeurs 2.

At Charlottetown, Marcotte opened the scoring at 18:15 of the second period before Provencher tipped a shot past Auger 4:05 of the third to make it 2-0 P.E.I.

Currie then stretched the Rocket lead to three just 1:33 later.

Auger then made an excellent shoulder save on Duffy and followed that up with another big blocker stop off a P.E.I. rebound.

But Duffy got his revenge with 1:02 remaining in the third to round out the scoring.

The Rocket finished the night 0-for-2 on the power play, while the Sea Dogs wound up 0-for-4.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
