Stefanovich scores twice as red-hot Quebec beats Chicoutimi 5-2 @NHLdotcom

The QMJHL's Big Three may have to make room for one more.

Mikhail Stefanovich continued his hot streak with two more goals as the Quebec Remparts won their ninth straight, 5-2 over the Chicoutimi Sagueneens on Wednesday night.

Stefanovich, a Toronto Maple Leafs draft pick, has scored 12 times during his current six-game goal streak, giving him a team-high 23 on the season. The reigning QMJHL offensive player of the week opened the scoring 15:38 into the first period, and his second of the game at 8:26 of the third stood as the game winner.

Samuel Carrier, Jean-Simon Allard and Benjamin Breault added singles for the Remparts (32-8-0-2), who moved to within one point of the Moncton Wildcats and Shawinigan Cataractes for second place in the QMJHL overall standings. Michael Tam added three third-period assists for the Remparts.

While much of the attention has been paid to the QMJHL's top three teams - the Wildcats, Cataractes and the QMJHL-leading Drummondville Voltigeurs - the Remparts have done their part to show they belong in the mix. Quebec has outscored its opponents by a ridiculous 43-11 margin during its nine-game run, and hasn't lost since dropping a 4-3 decision to Gatineau on Dec. 12.

In other QMJHL action Wednesday, it was: Drummondville 5 Rimouski 2; Cape Breton 3 Gatineau 2; and Victoriaville 7 Rouyn-Noranda 2.

At Chicoutimi, Que., Charles Lavigne preserved the victory for Quebec with a 26-save performance. Lavigne has won his last six starts, posting a 1.00 goals-against average and .963 save percentage over that span.

Nicolas Deschamps and Drew Paris had goals for the Sagueneens (16-21-2-2), who have lost two in a row. Francois Levesque turned aside 24 shots in defeat.

Voltigeurs 5 Oceanic 2

At Drummondville, Que., Mike Hoffman scored twice as the Voltigeurs downed Rimouski, handing the Oceanic their seventh loss in a row.
