Jerome Verrier scores as Voltigeurs edge Foreurs 3-2 in QMJHL

VAL-D'OR, Que. - Jerome Verrier's power-play goal gave the Drummondville Voltigeurs the insurance they needed in a 3-2 win over the Val-d'Or Foreurs in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play Thursday.

Olivier Archambault and Marc-Olivier Brouillard also scored for Drummondville (6-5-0).

Brouillard scored on a penalty shot in the first period after Val-d'Or's Artem Sergeev was sent off for hooking.

Verrier meanwhile scored at 7:22 in the second to put the Voltigeurs up for good.

Anton Zlobin and Anthony Mantha each scored for the Foreurs (4-7-0).

Louis-Philip Guindon made 26 saves in net for Drummondville, while at the other end of the ice Francois Tremblay stopped 24 shots.

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.
