DRUMMONDVILLE, Que. - Ryan Bourque gave the Quebec Remparts an important victory in a battle of division leaders on Sunday afternoon.

Bourque scored twice as part of a four-goal third period as Quebec rallied to defeat the Drummondville Voltigeurs 5-4 in the lone Quebec Major Junior Hockey League game.

Bourque, son of hall-of-famer Ray Bourque, opted to play in the QMJHL this season instead of enrolling at the University of New Hampshire. The decision has paid off so far, as Bourque is one of the top scorers on the Remparts with 22 points.

The New York Rangers' third-round pick in 2009, Bourque scored his ninth and 10th goals of the season to help Quebec turn a 3-1 deficit into a 5-3 lead less than eight minutes into the third.

Mikael Tam kick-started the outburst with his second of the game a minute and 40 seconds into the period. Julien Corriveau also added a goal seven seconds after Bourque's first as the Remparts (16-4-5) managed all five goals on just 16 shots, chasing Drummondville starter Antoine Tardif from the net.

Marc-Antoine Desnoyers, Jonathan Brunelle, Philippe Lefebvre and Alexandre Comtois scored for the Voltigeurs (19-4-1), who lost for the second time in nine games.

Jean-Philippe Gagnon made 34 saves for Quebec.
