Vachon scores in overtime as Drummondville beats Acadie-Bathurst 2-1

NHL.com @NHL

Guillaume Nadeau had an outing to remember - and it almost had a happy ending.

Marc-Olivier Vachon scored on a power play at 4:41 of overtime to lead the Drummondville Voltigeurs to a 2-1 victory over the Acadie-Bathurst Titan on Saturday in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

The come-from-behind triumph spoiled an incredible performance from Nadeau.

Making his first start of the season, the Acadie-Bathurst netminder missed a shutout by less than a minute-and-a-half, when Marc-Antoine Desnoyers scored for Drummondville to tie the game 1-1.

With Olivier Dame-Malka serving a penalty in overtime for the Titan, Vachon completed the comeback for the Voltigeurs (6-0-0), beating Nadeau on Drummondville's 46th shot of the game.
