Pietroniro scores winner as Shawinigan Cataractes edge Saint John Sea Dogs 3-2

SAINT JOHN, N.B. - Phil Pietroniro scored the winning goal with under three minutes left to play as the Shawinigan Cataractes edged the Saint John Sea Dogs 3-2 on Thursday in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Frank Schumacher and Frederick Gaudreau also scored for the Cataractes (14-34-7), with Marvin Cupper making 32 saves.

Michael Abbott scored his first Sea Dogs goal and Jakub Izacky added to his team lead (17) with another for Saint John (20-33-1), which dropped their second straight. Sebastien Auger made 23 saves on 26 shots.

Schumacher made it 1-0 Cataractes at 8:52 on a 3-on-1, the only scoring play of the period.

The Cataractes extended their lead to 2-0 on a goal by the captain Gaudreau, whose shot trickled past Auger at 6:56 of the second.

In the third Stephen Anderson found Abbott alone on the point where he teed up his first as a Sea Dog at 7:16.

Nine minutes later the Sea Dogs tied it when Cupper made a save on Pierre Durepos but Izacky followed up and banged home the rebound.

Quote of the Day

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
