Hudon scores two to lift Baie-Comeau over Val-d'Or 3-0 in QMJHL final

BAIE-COMEAU, Que. - Charles Hudon scored twice to lift the Baie-Comeau Drakkar over the Val-d'Or Foreurs 3-0 in Game 1 of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final Friday.

Jeremy Gregoire scored the other Drakkar goal, and added two assists for a three-point night.

Val-d'Or was held to just five shots in the third period, and was outshot 35-19 throughout the game.

Hudon put Baie-Comeau on the board halfway through the first period with his ninth goal of the post-season, and added his 10th on an empty-net shot 18:46 into the third.

Gregoire scored a power-play goal to put the Drakkar up 2-0 at 7:27 of the final frame.

Baie-Comeau goalie Philippe Cadorette made 19 saves for the shutout, while Foreurs netminder Antoine Bideau turned aside 32 shots in the losing effort.

The Drakkar host Game 2 on Saturday.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
