QMJHL Roundup: Beauregard scores twice as Val-d'Or advances with 3-2 win

DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. - Anthony Beauregard scored twice, including the eventual winner at 7:54 of the third period as the Val-d'Or Foreurs edged the Drummondville Voltigeurs 3-2 on Sunday to advance to the semifinal of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs.

Pierre-Maxime Poudrier rounded out the offence for the Foreurs with a power-play goal at 5:12 of the second period, and Nicolas Aube-Kubel contributed with two assists as Val-d'Or took the series 4-2.

Jerome Verrier and Ryan Culkin replied for the Voltigeurs, who were outshot 32-26.

Foreurs goaltender Antoine Bibeau made 24 saves, while Drummondville's Louis-Philip Guindon stopped 29 shots in the loss.

Val-d'Or will next play the Halifax Mooseheads, who won their series over Gatineau in five games.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
