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

What we expected is what we got. Very mature young individual that's focused. He is on the right track. He's not only a great hockey individual, but he's a good person off the ice. He seemed to take a leadership role with this group right off the hop and ran away with it, and was vocal, was respectful, was everything it takes to be a Panther. His future looks bright.
