QMJHL Roundup: Peter Trainor, Jean-Francois Plante lead Oceanic over Tigres 6-4

Peter Trainor had a goal and an assist and Jean-Francois Plante had four assists of his own Wednesday as the Rimouski Oceanic defeated the Victoriaville Tigres 6-4 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Anthony DeLuca, Nicolas Hebert, Michael Joly, Scott Oke and Alexis Loiseau had the other goals for Rimouski (20-10-4). Philippe Desrosiers made 38 saves to get the win.

Jonathan Diaby, Dominik Rehak, William Cochrane and Carl-Antoine Delisle had the goals for Victoriaville (13-14-6).

Brandon Whitney started for the Tigres but allowed four goals on 17 shots before being replaced by Guillaume Decelles, who stopped 15-of-17 shots the rest of the way.

In the only other game in the QMJHL, Chicoutimi downed Shawinigan 3-1.

At Victoriaville, Que., Whitney was pulled after giving up Hebert's goal that made it 4-1 Rimouski at 5:26 of the second.

The goaltending change seemed to spark the Oceanic as Rehak and Cochrane scored before the period was out to cut the deficit to 4-3.

But Oke and Loiseau scored late in the third before Delisle got a consolation goal to make the final 6-4.

Rimouski finished 2-for-5 on the power play, while Victoriaville was scoreless on two opportunities.

Sagueneens 3, Cataractes 1

At Chicoutimi, Que., Christopher Gibson made 20 saves and Guillaume Asselin had a goal and an assist as the Sagueneens (16-15-3) downed Shawinigan (6-23-3).

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.
