A return to home ice didn't help the Lewiston Maineiacs, who suffered another humiliating defeat at the hands on the Drummondville Voltigeurs.
Yannick Riendeau had three goals and an assist as the Voltigeurs beat the Maineiacs 7-2, and took a 3-0 stranglehold in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League first-round series.
After two games in Drummondville, a return to the familiar confines of the Androscoggin Bank Colisee did little to help Lewiston, which was outshot by a 57-14 margin in the game.
At least the Maineiacs held the Voltigeurs under 10 goals this time. Drummondville won the first two games of the series 12-3 and 10-1.
