Friday's QMJHL roundup @NHLdotcom

The Quebec Remparts finished their series against the Baie-Comeau Drakkar the same way they started it - with a blowout.

Quebec scored the first three goals of the game and added another four in the third period to knock the Drakkar out of the Quebec Major Junior League playoffs with a 7-1 rout on Friday night.

The Remparts' performance mimicked the opening game last Friday, when they spanked Baie-Comeau 8-1.

The Drakkar managed a one-goal win in Game 3 to avoid the sweep, but one win was all they could muster in a first-round series where they were outscored 28-10 overall.

Jean-Simon Allard picked up a goal and an assist for Quebec to continue his playoff point streak. He has two goals and six assists and, along with Dmitri Kugryshev and Mikhail Stefanovich, has registered at least a point in each of the Remparts' first five playoff games. Kugryshev scored and Stefanovich added an assist on Friday.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL, it was: Gatineau 4, Acadie-Bathurst 3 (OT); and Montreal 7, Rouyn Noranda 0.

At Quebec, Marc-Olivier Vallerand, Benjamin Breault and David Gilbert each scored and added an assist for the Remparts, who outshot Baie-Comeau 44-16, while Kelsey Tessier and Samuel Groulx added goals.

Guillaume Goulet had the lone reply for the Drakkar.

Charles Lavigne made 15 saves for the win. Baie-Comeau netminder Nathan Dunnett was pulled after allowing three goals on 23 shots. Francois Lacerte stopped 17 of 21 in replacement.


Olympiques 4, Titan 3 (OT)

At Bathurst, N.B., Alexandre Touchette scored his second goal of the game 90 seconds into overtime as Gatineau eliminated the Titan in five games.

Steven Delisle scored for the Olympiques with less than two minutes remaining in the third period to knot the game at 3-3, setting the stage for Touchette's unassisted series winner, his third goal of the playoffs.

Tye McGinn, who scored the overtime winner in game one, had a goal and an assist for Gatineau and Paul Byron collected an assist on the power play for his team-leading ninth point of the post-season.

Artem Demkov scored a pair and Eric Faille added another for Acadie-Bathurst, which was outshot 52-22 in the game and outscored 24-14 in the series.


Junior 7, Huskies 0

At Montreal, T.J. Brennan had two goals and two assists in the third period as the Junior exploded for six goals in the final 20 minutes to take a 3-2 series lead over Rouyn-Noranda.

Guillaume Asselin also scored a pair in the third and Toni Ritter added another two goals as Montreal once again regained the series lead. The Junior won the opening game and held a 2-1 advantage heading into game four on Wednesday, which the Huskies won 3-2.

Jeremy Gouche rounded out the scoring for Montreal, which held Rouyn-Noranda to just 15 shots while firing 36 of their own, including 13 in the six-goal third period.

Jake Allen earned the shutout, while Huskies starter Mickael Audette stopped 26 of 30 shots before being replaced by Luke Gallant, who allowed another three goals on just six shots in the final eight minutes and 34 seconds of the game.
