The Saint John Sea Dogs staved off elimination at the Memorial Cup on Tuesday, routing the Seattle Thunderbirds 7-0 to move on to the tournament semi-final.

After a tough outing against the Erie Otters the day before, Simon Bourque got back on track against the Thunderbirds, finishing the night with a plus-2 differential. The Habs' sixth-round choice in 2015 also go an assist on Cole Reginato's second-period goal.

Joe Veleno (two goals), Chase Stewart, Mathieu Joseph, Spencer Smallman and Bokondji Imama were the other goal-scorers for the winning side.

The Sea Dogs will now enjoy two days off before returning to action on Friday for the semi-final. They will face the loser of Wednesday's game between the Otters and the Windsor Spitfires, who count two Canadiens prospects among their ranks - Mikhail Sergachev and Jeremiah Addison.
