QMJHL Roundup: Baie-Comeau wins to cut into Halifax's 2-1 series lead

BAIE-COMEAU, Que. - The Baie-Comeau Drakkar ended Halifax's dominant streak and got back into the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final.

Philippe Cadorette made 27 saves as the Drakkar beat the Mooseheads 3-1 to cut into Halifax's 2-1 series lead.

Valentin Zykov, Gabryel Paquin-Boudreau and Carl Gelinas each scored for Baie-Comeau.

Andrew Ryan replied for the Mooseheads, who saw their 14-game winning streak end. Zachary Fucale meanwhile stopped 27 shots.

After a scoreless first period, Zykov gave the Drakkar the lead at 15:50 in the second.

Paquin-Boudreau made it 2-0 nearly three minutes into the third, but Ryan cut the deficit to one at 10:17.

Gelinas' empty-net goal put the result out of doubt in the final minute of regulation.

The series continues Wednesday with Game 4 in Baie-Comeau.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
