It was a big night for the Canadiens at the Memorial Cup, as all three Habs prospects recorded points in the opening game of the tournament, a 3-2 Spitfires win over the Saint John Sea Dogs in Windsor on Friday.

Jeremiah Addison opened the scoring for Windsor just over four minutes into the opening period on the power play. Mikhail Sergachev assisted on the Spitfires' second goal of the night by Jeremy Braco in the middle frame, putting the host team up 2-0.

Sergachev helped put the game away for Windsor by assisting on Aaron Luchuk's eventual game-winner with just 4:48 remaining in regulation. Simon Bourque collected an assist on Nathan Noel's goal for the Sea Dogs 1:38 later, and Saint John would add a second goal with under three minutes to play, but Windsor held on for the win.

Bourque finished the night with a whopping five shots on net and one assist with an even differential for the Sea Dogs. On the Spitfires side, Addison totalled one goal on one shot with an even differential, while Sergachev garnered two assists, a plus-two differential, one shot on net and two minutes in penalties. The Russian defenseman was named the game's third star.

The Spitfires' next game is Sunday against the Seattle Thunderbirds, while Saint John faces off against the Erie Otters on Monday.
