NHL.com @NHL

The Saint John Sea Dogs are rolling through the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League playoffs and don't seem ready to let up.

Jonathan Huberdeau scored twice as Saint John routed the Gatineau Olympiques 7-2 in the QMJHL quarter-finals Saturday night.

The Sea Dogs lead the series 2-0. Game 3 will be in Gatineau on Tuesday night.

Saint John has already out-scored the Olympiques 14-6 after just two games.

The P.E.I. Rocket faced a similar struggle against the Sea Dogs in the first round of the playoffs, losing their series 4-1.

In that pairing Saint John out-paced the Rocket 23-12.

Despite their high-powered offence, the Sea Dogs have only one player in the top 10 playoff scorers.

Stanislav Galiev has five goals and six assists to sneak into the 10th spot on the scoring table.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Drummondville 3 Rimouski 0; Victoriaville 4 Quebec 2; and Moncton 4 Rouyn-Noranda 3 (OT).

At Saint John, N.B., Mike Hoffman had a goal and two assists for the Sea Dogs, while Galiev, Tomas Jurco, Stephen MacAulay and Zack Phillips also scored.

Alexander Beaton and Adam Janosik both had power-play markers for the Olympiques.
