QMJHL Roundup: A look at Tuesday's games

William Carrier scored in the first period and Philippe Trudeau made 28 saves as the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles shut out the Shawinigan Cataractes 1-0 on Tuesday in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Carrier scored his 10th goal of the season midway through the first period with assists from Alexandre Lavoie and Jonathan Oligny.

That makes two straight wins for the Screaming Eagles (5-8-4).

Elsewhere in the QMJHL, the Val-d'Or Foreurs defeated the Sherbrooke Phoenix 4-1.

At Cape Breton, N.S., Marvin Cupper was impressive at the other end, stopping 34 of 35 shots for the struggling Cataractes, who are last in the league at 2-11-2.

Both teams couldn't connect on the power play. Cape Breton went 0-for-3 while Shawinigan was 0-for-4.

At Val-d'Or, Que., Anton Zlobin scored his 10th goal of the season while shorthanded to lead the Foreurs over Sherbrooke.

Michael Beaudry, Brett Hester and Vincent Dunn also scored for Val-d'Or (7-7-2), who won its third straight.

Brandon Lesway had the lone goal for the Phoenix (3-12-2).

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
