QMJHL Roundup: A look at Sunday's games

Zach O'Brien scored twice Sunday as the Acadie-Bathurst Titan defeated the host Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 5-2 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The 20-year-old forward picked up the game's first star and he now has eight goals and 16 points in eight games to leads his club in scoring.

Sean Girard, Adam Zboril and Alexandre Gosselin also scored for the Titan (5-4-2) while Christophe Lalancette chipped in with two assists.

Kyle Farrell and Charles Guevremont replied for the Screaming Eagles (2-6-3), who have dropped three straight.

Jacob Brennan made 25 saves for the win as Philippe Trudeau turned aside 26 shots in a losing effort.

Acadie-Bathurst went 2-for-2 on the power play while Cape Breton failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Rouyn-Noranda 3, Moncton 2; Victoriaville 5, Blainville-Boisbriand 3; and Chicoutimi 7, Gatineau 3.

At Sydney, N.S., O'Brien opened the scoring with a shorthanded goal at 8:21 of the first period.

O'Brien made it 2-0 for the Titan 1:07 into the second period, before Farrell put the Screaming Eagles on the board with a shorthanded goal of his own at 9:22.

While on the same power play, Gosselin responded for Acadie-Bathurst just 26 seconds later to make it 3-1 Titan after 40 minutes of play.

Zboril scored 7:27 into the third period to give the Titan a three-goal lead.

Guevremont added one more for Cape Breton at 12:04 while shorthanded but, like its previous power-play opportunity, Girard scored 40 seconds later while still up a man for Acadie-Bathurst.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
