If the month of November is any indication, the Drummondville Voltigeurs are the hottest team in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.
Phillipe Lefebvre scored twice as the Voltigeurs won their ninth straight game, sinking the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 4-1 on Saturday night.
Drummondville has not lost since dropping a 5-2 decision to Shawinigan on Nov. 1. The Voltigeurs (21-4-0-2) will close out November with a record of 9-1, outscoring their opponents 59-24 over that time. Their current nine-game winning streak is one shy of the club record, set in the 2005-06 season.
Lefebvre, drafted second overall by Drummondville in the 2007 QMJHL draft, scored his sixth and seventh goals of the season. The 17-year-old from Trois-Rivieres, Que., has 19 points in 27 games so far this season.
Danny Masse opened the scoring midway through the first period with his 20th goal of the season and Mike Hoffman made it 4-0 on the power play in the second. The Voltigeurs dominated Baie-Comeau in the early stages of the game, posting a 16-8 shot advantage after the first 20 minutes.
