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

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
