QMJHL Roundup: A look at Wednesday's games

Tomas Pavelka scored the winning goal and also picked up an assist Wednesday as the P.E.I. Rocket defeated the Quebec Remparts 4-2 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Josh Currie, Matthew Bursey and Ben Duffy, into an empty net, also scored for the Rocket (17-10-2), while Maxime Legace made 26 saves to pick up the win.

Mikhail Grigorenko and Pierre-Maxime Poudrier had the goals for the Remparts (20-8-1), who got 28 saves from Francois Brassard.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Drummondville 3, Blainville-Boisbriand 2; Moncton 4, Val-d'Or 1; and Baie-Comeau 6, Gatineau 3.

At Charlottetown, tied 1-1 after two periods, Currie gave the Rocket their first lead of the night with a power-play goal just 59 seconds into the third.

The lead was short-lived, however, as Grigorenko knotted things up again just 90 seconds later.

But Pavelka then put P.E.I. ahead for good with an unassisted goal 7:42 before Duffy iced the game into an empty net with 40 seconds left in regulation.

P.E.I finished the night 1-for-4 on the power play, while Quebec was scoreless on its only man-advantage opportunity.

Voltigeurs 3, Armada 2

At Blainville, Que., Louis-Philip Guindon made 37 saves as Drummondville (17-12-1) got past the Armada (21-6-3).


Wildcats 4, Foreurs 1

At Val-d'Or, Que., Ross Johnston had a goal and two assists as Moncton (20-10-0) downed the Foreurs (15-13-2).


Drakkar 6, Olympiques 3

At Gatineau, Que., Petr Straka scored three times as Baie-Comeau (18-9-3) doubled up the Olympiques (11-17-1).

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
