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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
