It took nearly five full periods of play, but Philippe Cornet kept the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies' playoff hopes alive on Friday night.

Cornet scored 14:28 into double overtime as the Huskies eked out a 5-4 win over the Moncton Wildcats in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League post-season action.

Moncton leads the series 3-1 and will host Game 5 on Saturday night. The winner of the match-up will face the Victoriaville Tigres in the QMJHL semifinal.

The Wildcats seemed assured of a series sweep on Friday night with a 3-1 lead heading into the third period.

Rouyn-Noranda rallied with three goals in the final period, including Jordan Caron's score with 41 seconds left in regulation to give the Huskies a 4-3 edge.

Just 17 seconds later Moncton's Kelsey Tessier had his second of the night to force overtime.

Caron also had an assist, giving him seven goals and 10 assists in the post-season.

That total ties him with Drummondville's Gabriel Dumont (10 G, 7 A)and Saint John's Michael Kirkpatrick (6 G, 11 A) for the most points in the 2010 playoffs.
