Mantha scores twice as Foreurs beat Drakkar 5-2 to take 2-1 series lead

VAL-D'OR, Que. - Anthony Mantha had two goals and an assist and Antoine Bibeau stopped 30 shots as the Val-d'Or Foreurs toppled the visiting Baie-Comeau Drakkar 5-2 on Tuesday in Game 3 of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final.

Anthony Richard had a goal and an assist for the Foreurs, who lead the best-of-seven series 2-1. Maxime Gravel and Pierre-Maxime Poudrier tacked on a goal apiece.

Felix Girard and Maxime St-Cyr supplied the scoring for the Drakkar, who led 2-1 midway through the second period before giving up four unanswered goals.

Baie-Comeau's Philippe Cadorette turned away 24-of-28 shots in a losing cause.

Val-d'Or went 2 for 3 on the power play while the Drakkar failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

The Foreurs host Game 4 on Wednesday.

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.
