QMJHL Roundup: A look at Wednesday's games

Alexandre Comtois scored on the power play at 1:06 of overtime Wednesday as the Sherbrooke Phoenix defeated the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 6-5 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Cole Hawes and Michael McNamee each added two goals and two assists for Sherbrooke (2-8-1), while Brandon Lesway also scored and added an assist.

Jacob Gervais-Chouinard stopped 22 shots to secure the Phoenix's second win of the season.

Kyle Farrell had two goals and two assists for Cape Breton (2-6-4), while William Carrier also scored and added three assists.

Michael Clarke and Stephen Woodworth had the other goals for the Screaming Eagles.

Philippe Trudeau started for Cape Breton but allowed three goals on just eight shots in the first period before getting the hook. Alex Bureau went the rest of the way for the Screaming Eagles, stopping 14-of-17 shots.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
