Monday's victory was well worth the wait for the Baie-Comeau Drakkar.
Felix Petit scored a pair of goals, including the eventual game winner with 7:12 in regulation, as the Drakkar downed the Rimouski Oceanic 5-3 in QMJHL action.
Petit's 14th goal of the season gave Baie-Comeau (10-21-4-2) a 4-2 lead in a game rescheduled from Sunday due to poor weather. Sebastien Piche moved the Oceanic (22-17-0-0) to within one at 14:33, but Pierre-Luc Lessard put the game away with an empty netter in the final seconds.
The win ended the Drakkar's three-game losing streak, while sending Rimouski to its fourth straight defeat.
