QMJHL Roundup: Fortier, Gravel lead Oceanic to 5-4 upset over Remparts

Simon Fortier and Maxime Gravel were instrumental in the Rimouski Oceanic's upset of the Quebec Remparts on Wednesday.

Both scored in the middle of the third period as Rimouski held on for a 5-4 victory over the division-rival Remparts in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

Despite the loss, Quebec (15-5-0) still leads the QMJHL's East Division, while the Oceanic (12-7-3) are third in the division.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Cape Breton 5 P.E.I. 3; Val-d'Or 3 Acadie-Bathurst 2 and Baie-Comeau 7 Shawinigan 1.

Quote of the Day

I downplayed the first one because I thought it's just a hockey game. We just want to win the game; it's against our rival and we want the two points. I downplayed it, but now having gone through the first one I look back and say, 'Geez, that was really cool.' I think as I've grown a bit older I've got a lot more appreciation for what we're allowed to do every day.
