QMJHL Roundup: Sea Dogs end four-game skid with 3-1 win over Screaming Eagles

Kevin Gagne hit a new career high and helped the Saint John Sea Dogs end a four-game losing slide.

Gagne scored his 10th goal of the season Tuesday as Sain John downed the Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 3-1 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The 10 goals are a new personal best for Gagne in a season.

Oliver Cooper and Aidan Kelly also scored for the Sea Dogs (15-16-0).

Bronson Beaton replied for the Screaming Eagles (8-20-6).

Beaton got the Screaming Eagles on the board just 1:34 into the game but Cooper evened the score at 12:22 on a beautiful toe-drag.

Stephen MacAulay made a sharp initial pass to Cooper, who held on to the puck and roofed it over outstretched goaltender David Honzik.

Gagne pulled the Sea Dogs ahead at 15:57, with Ryan Tesink and Jakub Izacky assisting on the bullet from the point.

The second period saw no scoring, but Saint John dominated the shot clock 18-3.

Kelly iced the game with an empty netter at 18:58.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Moncton 5, Acadie-Bathurst 3; Sherbrooke 3, Victoriaville 2 (SO); Rouyn-Noranda 3, Val-d'Or 2 (SO) and Baie-Comeau 7, Shawinigan 2.

At Saint John, N.B., Sebastien Auger stopped 22 shots to pick up the win, while Honzik made 26 saves in defeat.

Wildcats 5, Titan 3

At Moncton, N.B., Christophe Lalonde struck twice as the Wildcats (21-11-0) topped Acadie-Bathurst (12-17-5).


Phoenix 3, Tigres 2 (SO)

At Sherbrooke, Que., Michael McNamee, Alexandre Comtois and Brandon Lesway all scored in the shootout as the Phoenix (7-20-4) edged Victoriaville (13-13-5).


Huskies 3, Foreurs 2 (SO)

At Val-d'Or, Que., Maxime St-Cyr was the lone scorer in the shootout as Rouyn-Noranda (21-10-1) slipped past the Foreurs (15-15-3).


Drakkar 7, Cataractes 2

At Baie-Comeau, Que., Carl Gelinas had a hat trick as the Drakkar (20-10-3) sailed past Shawinigan (6-22-3).

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
