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

When we started our journey we made a commitment to our fans to be relevant and to see the Chicago Blackhawks become the best professional hockey organization. There are not two finer symbols of that than Jonathan Toews and Patrick Kane. The commitment we have made to these incredible young men is equal to the commitment they have made to our team, our fans, our entire organization and the city of Chicago.
