QMJHL Roundup: Clapperton leads Armada to 6-1 playoff win over Titan

Christopher Clapperton scored twice as the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada downed the Acadie-Bathurst Titan 6-1 on Thursday in the first game of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs.

Clapperton also had an assist as the third-seeded Armada took a 1-0 lead in their first-round series. Marc-Olivier Roy scored and added two assists for Blainville-Boisbriand, while Marcus Hinds, Danick Martel and Olivier Picard chipped in as well.

Etienne Marcoux made 16 saves for the win.

Christophe Lalancette had the Titan's only goal at the 9:32 mark of the third period. Jacob Brennan stopped 16 of 21 shots in the first 40 minutes of play. Mason McDonald took over in the Acadie-Bathurst net at the start of the third, allowing one goal on 12 shots.

Neither team scored on the power play. The Armada went 0 for 5 with the man advantage, while the Titan were 0 for 2.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
