BAIE-COMEAU, Que. - Guillaume Gelinas scored twice, including the winner, as the Val-d'Or Foreurs edged the host Baie-Comeau Drakkar 4-3 in overtime in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoff action on Saturday.

Gelinas' power-play goal at 7:24 of the extra period evened the best-of-seven President Cup final at a game apiece, with Game 3 headed back to Val-d'Or on Tuesday.

Pierre-Maxime Poudrier forced overtime for the Foreurs when he scored at 18:27 of the third period. Louick Marcotte had the other goal and Samuel Henley and Anthony Mantha each chipped in with two assists.

Val-d'Or's Antoine Bibeau made 32 saves for the win as Baie-Comeau's Philippe Cadorette turned away 42-of-46 shots in defeat.

The Foreurs went 1 for 3 on the power play while the Drakkar scored twice on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
