The Rimouski Oceanic spread the wealth Sunday afternoon, while taking advantage of some unexpected generosity from the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.

Felix Lefrancois added two goals and an assist and Mathieu Asselin also scored twice for Rimouski (22-13-0-0), which ended a two-game losing streak with its most lopsided win of the season. It was the Oceanic's best offensive performance since a 12-3 drubbing of the Saint John Sea Dogs on Jan. 28, 2007.

The Oceanic benefited greatly from the Drakkar's unending parade to the penalty box. Rimouski scored five times in 10 power-play opportunities, while adding a short-handed goal in the first period.
