QMJHL Roundup: Verret caps Phoenix's 4-3 rally with 32 seconds left to play

Anthony Verret capped the Sherbrooke Phoenix's rally with just over half a minute to spare.

Verret scored with 32 seconds left in the third period to give Sherbrooke a 4-3 win over the Rimouski Oceanic on Thursday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

Jeremy Beaudry had back-to-back goals in the third as the Phoenix (7-19-3) scored three unanswered goals.

Simon Desbiens scored in the first period to give Sherbrooke a 1-0 lead.

Michael Joly and Scott Oke replied for Rimouski (17-10-4) with short-handed goals to end the first.

Oke then added another goal in the second, giving the Oceanic a 3-1 lead headed into the final period.

Jacob Gervais-Chouinard made 29 saves for the win, while Philippe Desrosiers stopped 28 for Rimouski.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
