QMJHL Roundup: Straka's two goals leads Drakkar past Sea Dogs 6-2

Petr Straka scored twice as the Baie-Comeau Drakkar defeated the visiting Saint John Sea Dogs 6-2 on Saturday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

The 20-year-old forward now has four goals and seven points in his last three games.

Gabryel Paquin-Boudreau scored once and set up two more for the Drakkar (7-4-1), who have won three of their last four outings, while Samuel Noreau and Valentin Zykov each had a goal and an assist.

Frederic Gamelin and Francis Turbide had two assists apiece and Carl Gelinas scored a single goal to round out Baie-Comeau's offence.

Jakub Izacky and Ryan Tesink scored for the Sea Dogs (6-7-0).

Philippe Cadorette stopped 19 shots for the win as Alex Fournier turned away 24-of-30 shots in a losing cause.

Baie Comeau was successful on the power play, going 3-for-8, while Saint John failed to score on its only opportunity with the man advantage.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL, it was: Blainville-Boisbriand 2, Chicoutmi 1; P.E.I. 2, Sherbrooke 0 and Rouyn-Noranda 7, Gatineau 6 (OT).

At Baie-Comeau, Que., Izacky opened the scoring for Saint John 7:40 into the first period, however Zykov and Straka scored three minutes apart to give the Drakkar a 2-1 lead after 20 minutes of play.

Noreau scored the only goal of the second period and it came by way of the power play at 19:20.

Tesink brought the Sea Dogs within a goal at 7:15 of the third period, but Paquin-Boudreau restored a two-goal lead for Baie-Comeau at 10:38.

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.
