Not even a penalty kill in overtime could keep Philip-Michael Devos from finishing what he started.
Devos opened the scoring 6:45 into the first period and potted the short-handed winner late into overtime to lead the Victoriaville Tigres to a 4-3 win over the Moncton Wildcats in Quebec Major Junior Hockey League action Friday.
Moncton (7-0-2-0) staged a late rally with two power-play goals in the second half of the third period to send the game to overtime. The Wildcats remain undefeated in regulation so far this season, but have now lost two straight in extra time.
Devos now has seven goals and 12 points in 13 games for Victoriaville (6-7-0-0), which snapped a three-game losing skid with the victory.
