QMJHL Roundup: A look at Tuesday's games

The Halifax Mooseheads padded their lead atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League with a third straight win.

The Mooseheads scored three unanswered goals in the first period and went on to beat the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 5-3 on Tuesday.

Martin Frk, Darcy Ashley, Matthew Boudreau, Stefan Fournier and Luca Ciampini each scored for Halifax (24-3-1), which moved four points ahead of idle Blainville-Boisbriand with a game in hand.

Michael Clarke, Brett Malone and Kyle Farrell replied for Cape Breton (7-18-6).

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Moncton 5, Rouyn-Noranda 1.

At Sydney, N.S., Clarke gave the struggling Screaming Eagles a 1-0 lead after he beat Mooseheads goaltender Chris Clarke just 1:10 into the first period.

But then goals by Frk, Ashley and Boudreau put Halifax into the lead for good.

Malone's power-play goal late in the second cut Cape Breton's deficit to one. But goals by Halifax's Fournier and Ciampini in the third put the game out of reach even with Farrell adding a goal at 14:42.

Clarke finished with 19 saves for the Mooseheads, while at the other end Philippe Trudeau stopped 32 shots.

Wildcats 5, Huskies 1

At Rouyn-Noranda, Que., Yannick Veilleux scored twice for Moncton (19-10-0), which scored four unanswered goals in the third period to roll past the Huskies (18-10-1).

Great players need great players to play with. That's why we'll have a training camp and we'll find who the best two guys are suited to play with Stamkos.
