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.

Quote of the Day
