SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Noah Zilbert scored a hat trick and Sebastien Auger made 48 saves as the Saint John Sea Dogs beat the Moncton Wildcats 3-1 in Monday's lone Quebec Major Junior Hockey Game.

Zilbert scored at 10:40 and 14:08 of the first period then added his third into an empty net in the final minute of the game for Saint John (17-20-0).

Yannick Veilleux had the only goal for Moncton (23-14-1) on the power play 6:33 into the first period.

Wildcats goaltender Cole Holowenko meanwhile stopped 19 shots.

It's hard to walk into that locker room and look those guys in the eye when they've played -- clearly, that was our best game we've played in the series -- and I thought we deserved a better fate tonight.

— Tampa Bay Lightning coach Jon Cooper on his team's 3-2 loss to the Canadiens in Game 3 on Sunday
