QMJHL Roundup: A look at Saturday's games @NHLdotcom

The Saint John Sea Dogs missed out on a chance to take the lead atop the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Peter Trainor's power-play goal in the third period put the Rimouski Oceanic ahead for good in a 4-3 win Wednesday.

A victory would have boosted the Sea Dogs past idle Victoriaville for first place in the league.

Petr Straka, Jean-Francois Plante and Alexandre Mallet each scored for the Oceanic (12-8-0).

Jonathan Huberdeau, the third-overall pick by the Florida Panthers in June's NHL draft, had two goals for Saint John (14-6-0), while Danick Gauthier also scored.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Drummondville 4, P.E.I. 2; and Quebec 4, Gatineau 1.

At Rimouski, Que., Huberdeau scored twice in the first period but the Oceanic countered with goals by Straka and Plante.

Mallet put Rimouski up 3-2 at 7:22 in the second, before Gauthier tied the game less than two minutes later.

Oceanic goaltender Jacob Gervais-Chouinard stopped 35 shots for the win, while Mathieu Corbeil made 20 saves for the Sea Dogs.

Voltigeurs 4, Rocket 2

At Drummondville, Que., Domenic Graham made 25 saves as the Voltigeurs grounded the Rocket.

Olivier Archambault, Maxime Villemaire, Emil Sylvegard and Andre Bouvet-Morrissette each scored for Drummondville (9-10-1).

Yan Pavel Laplante and Olivier Croteau replied for P.E.I. (5-12-3).
