Sunday was a record-setting day in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Chicoutimi Sagueneens' head coach Richard Martel earned his 570th career victory, the most in QMJHL history, as Chicoutimi sank the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 3-1.

Drummondville goaltender Jake Allen's shutout streak ended at 188 minutes and 47 seconds, surpassing Nicola Riopel for the second longest stretch in league history as the Voltigeurs downed the Montreal Junior 4-1.

Martel had tied QMJHL Hall of Famer Guy Chouinard at 569 wins when the Sagueneens beat the Val-d'Or Foreurs 2-0 on Feb. 20, but it took three more games to break the record as Chicoutimi dropped close games to Rouyn-Noranda and P.E.I.

Riopel of the Moncton Wildcats, whose shutout streak lasted 179:59, ended Saturday night in a 4-3 victory over the Halifax Mooseheads.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was Moncton 7 Halifax 2; Victoriaville 8 Lewiston 4 and Rouyn-Noranda 7 Val-d'Or 1.

At Chicoutimi, Que., Mathieu Populus had the eventual winner, while Antoine Roussel and Alexis Piette also scored for the Sagueneens (25-28-9).
