Cadorette 33 saves as Drakkar edge Armada for 1-0 series lead

Philippe Cadorette stopped 33 shots as the Baie-Comeau Drakkar edged the visiting Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 2-1 on Friday in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff action.

Valentin Zykov broke a 1-1 tie at 7:46 of the third period for the Drakkar, who lead the best-of-seven third-round matchup 1-0.

Baie-Comeau's Jeremy Gregoire opened the scoring just 1:06 into the first period while Petr Straka picked up a single assist to move into second in playoff scoring. The 20-year-old forward has eight goals and 19 points in nine games.

Christian Marti scored for the Armada 45 seconds into the third period and it was his first of the playoffs in 10 games played.

Blainville-Boisbriand's Etienne Marcoux turned away 31-of-33 shots in defeat.

The Drakkar, who are 9-0-0 in the playoffs, went 2 for 4 on the power play while the Armada failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Game 2 is scheduled for Saturday when Baie-Comeau hosts Blainville-Boisbriand at the Centre Henry-Leonard.

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.
