Goalies ruled the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League on Friday night.

Kevin Poulin turned aside 26 shots as the Victoriaville Tigres stormed past the Lewiston Maineiacs 5-0 in QMJHL action.

The hard work of defencemen and goaltenders was rewarded across the league as four teams earned clean sheets.

The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles downed the Moncton Wildcats 4-0, the Saint John Sea Dogs dropped the P.E.I. Rocket 4-0, and the Shawinigan Cataractes bested the Gatineau Olympiques 2-0.

Poulin's shutout was the seventh of the season, the most in Tigres' history.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Quebec 5 Rimouski 2; Baie-Comeau 4 Chicoutimi 1; Acadie-Bathurst 6 Halifax 4; Drummondville 9 Val-d'Or 1; and Rouyn-Noranda 3 Montreal 1.
