QMJHL Roundup: Goalie Alex Dubeau rebounds in Wildcats 3-0 win over Mooseheads

Alex Dubeau bounced back from a disastrous performance on Sunday.

The Wildcats goalie made 25 saves to earn the shuout as Moncton blanked the top-ranked Halifax Mooseheads 3-0 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

Dubeau had given up three goals on 12 shots in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Baie-Comeau Drakkar. He was pulled after the first period in favour of Cole Holowenko.

But Dubeau was given the start again Sunday and did not disappoint head coach Danny Flynn.

The loss ended Halifax's four-game win streak. The Mooseheads (21-3-1) still have the best record in the QMJHL.

Moncton (16-10-0) is still sixth overall in the league.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Saint John 5 Baie-Comeau 4; Blainville-Boisbriand 5 Gatineau 2; Chicoutimi 2 Quebec 1 (SO) and Drummondville 5 Victoriaville 2.

At Saint John, N.B., Sebastien Auger made 38 saves as the Sea Dogs (13-12-0) fended off Baie-Comeau (17-7-3), which scored three unanswered goals in the third period. The final play of the game was particularly rough with nine penalties being handed out to five players.

We've got to find a way to win a game. He's played well in the minors, now he gets his opportunity. We tried [with Jonathan Bernier]. The way I look at it, you get opportunities and you make the most of it. That's what [James Reimer] did. Now another opportunity is here and Sparks ... you gotta grab it. Is he ready? We'll find out.
