Cameron's goal, two assists lead streaking Moncton past Acadie-Bathurst 7-2 @NHLdotcom

Hosting the top defensive team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League did little to help snap the Acadie-Bathurst Titan out of their October funk.

Detroit Red Wings prospect Randy Cameron had a goal and two assists, and the Moncton Wildcats used a four-goal third period to cruise to a 7-2 win over the struggling Titan in QMJHL action.

The Wildcats (9-0-2-0), who sit fourth in the Canadian Hockey League rankings, overcame an early Acadie-Bathurst goal and dominated the final 2 1/2 periods, finishing with a 41-22 advantage in shots. With the victory, Moncton remains the last QMJHL team without a regulation loss this season.

The Wildcats have done it largely with defence, having allowed a league-low 20 goals in 11 games. Moncton has surrendered more than two goals in a game just twice this season - in back-to-back overtime losses Saint John on Oct. 5 and Victoriaville on Oct. 10, the Wildcats' only defeats so far.

Zach Sill, Scott Brannon and Matt Eagles added a goal and an assist apiece for Moncton, with singles coming from Daniel Pettersson, Paul Dimitruk and Tampa Bay Lightning draft pick Mark Barberio.

In other QMJHL action Tuesday, it was: Quebec 5 Val-d'Or 4 (SO); Rimouski 3 Lewiston 1; Saint John 4 P.E.I. 3; and Chicoutimi 4 Gatineau 1.

At Bathurst, N.B., Tomy Joly scored 1:10 into the game and Remi Blanchard added a third-period shorthanded goal as the Titan (5-5-3-0) lost their fifth straight game. Acadie-Bathurst has won just twice in seven home games (2-2-3), and has just one victory in six games in October.

Nicola Riopel ran his record to 9-1 with a 20-save performance for the Wildcats.

Nicolas Champion turned aside 34 shots in defeat for the Titan.

Remparts 5 Foreurs 4 (SO)

At Val-d'Or, Que., Mikhail Stefanovich scored once in regulation and again in the shootout as Quebec beat the Foreurs for their 10th win in a row.

Kelsey Tessier, Sebastien Trudeau and Benjamin Breault added regulation goals for the Remparts (11-1-0-0), who extended their season-opening road win streak to a franchise-record seven games.

Jonathan Hazen had a hat trick and Derek Fulmare added a single for Val-d'Or (0-10-1-1), the lone remaining winless team in the QMJHL.
