QMJHL Roundup: Guevremont's short-handed goal leads Sagueneens past Tigres

The Chicoutimi Sagueneens found a way to win on Tuesday even when they were down a man.

Charles Guevremont's short-handed goal early in the third period stood as the winner as Chicoutimi edged the Victoriaville Tigres 3-2 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action.

Guillaume Asselin's tripping penalty 10 seconds into the third gave Victoriaville a power play but despite that man advantage, Guevremont scored on Tigres goalie Brandon Whitney.

Charles Hudon had a short-handed goal for the Sagueneens (20-18-4) in the first period, while Sebastien Sylvestre added a power-play goal. Christopher Gibson made 31 saves for the win.

Philippe Maillet and Carl-Antoine Delisle scored for Victoriaville (16-19-7). Whitney stopped 17 shots.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Rouyn-Noranda 2 Drummondville 1 (OT).

Huskies 2 Voltigeurs 1 (OT)

At Rouyn-Noranda, Que., Gabriel Desjardins scored 23 seconds into overtime as the Huskies (26-13-1) edged Drummondville (23-14-3). Maxime St-Cyr had a power-play goal for Rouyn-Noranda in the first, while Olivier Archambault replied for the Voltigeurs with the extra man just two minutes later.

Quote of the Day

The old saying in hockey is 'weather the storm.' I put the notion in their heads that we don't want to weather the storm, we want to push just as hard and matched their work ethic. I thought our guys exceeded that in the first period.
