CHARLOTTETOWN - Charlottetown's Antoine Bibeau let in the game's first goal but finished with 48 saves, and the Islanders scored seven unanswered goals to dump Val-d'Or 7-1 in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League play Thursday.

Guillaume Gelinas opened the scoring for the Foreurs (7-5-0) with a short-handed goal at 13:17 of the first period, and 40 seconds later Kameron Kielly tied it for Charlottetown (9-2-1) on the power play. Alexandre Goulet made it 2-1 before the period was over.

Daniel Sprong and Alex Pepin scored 20 seconds apart in the third period to make it 4-1 at the 2:22 mark. The Islanders added to the rout with goals from Deverick Ottereyes, another from Sprong, and their seventh of the night from Guillaume Rioux-Legault.

François Tremblay stopped 23 of 28 shots for Val-d'Or, and Keven Bouchard stopped just one of the three shots he faced over the final 16:24 of the game.

Quote of the Day

Just the feel for the direction they were headed and what they're trying to do, it just felt that this is a really good thing for this organization. They've got the pieces. We can put something together and go on a run or two and be together for a while, and I'm really excited about that opportunity. The team we have here has an opportunity to win, and that's the most attractive thing.
