       2015 DRAFT: Flyers to pick No. 7 overall   
 
       MOCK DRAFT: (1) Kimelman  |  (2) Morreale 
     

Three games into the QMJHL Final series between Rimouski and Quebec sees the Remparts leading Sam Morin and the Oceanic by a 2 games to 1 margin.

Rimouski dropped Games One and Two, both on home ice, to open up the series and were outscored 11 to 5 in the process. The 11 goals allowed were the same amount allowed in their previous seven games combined before the Final series began, and one less than the 12 goals they have allowed in all of their previous six home playoff games combined thus far.

Traveling to the Colisée Pepsi for Game Three, Rimouski fought back to earn a 4-2 victory and cut the series lead in half.

After going scoreless in the first two games, defenseman Sam Morin recorded two assists in the victory, including the only assist on the eventual game-winning goal.

Morin has tied his postseason career high in points, recording one goal and seven assists for eight points through 15 games in this year’s playoffs. He also has a plus-minus rating of +11, which ranks second on the team.

Game Four is slated for Wednesday Night in Quebec.

KELOWNA ON THE BRINK
In the Western Hockey League Final, the Kelowna Rockets are on the verge of sweeping the Brandon Wheat Kings, holding a 3 games to 0 series lead.

Flyers prospect Tyrell Goulbourne is not among the players in the lineup after suffering a leg laceration in Game Five of the semifinal series. Goulbourne appeared in 12 of the 14 games through the first three rounds before going down with his injury, recording a goal and an assist. He remains out indefinitely.

Game Four is Wednesday in Kelowna where the Rockets will be looking for their first WHL title and advance to their first Memorial Cup tournament since 2009.
