QMJHL Roundup: Cadorette makes 40 saves as Drakkar hammer Armada 6-1

BAIE-COMEAU, Que. - Philippe Cadorette was spectacular with 40 saves as the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League-leading Baie-Comeau Drakkar crushed the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada 6-1 on Tuesday.

Maxime St-Cyr scored twice and Jeremy Gregoire, Bokondji Imama, Felix Girard and Denis Gorbunov added singles for the Drakkar (42-15-4), who moved five points ahead of the second-place Armada.

Nikita Jevpalovs broke up Cadorette's shutout bid with a power-play goal in the third period for the Armada (37-14-9), who have lost four straight.

Etienne Marcoux allowed five goals on 32 shots before being pulled from the Armada's net. Tyler Whiffen took over and gave up a goal on nine shots.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
