The Quebec Remparts mostly won at the expense of the Sherbrooke Phoenix, 6-2, on Saturday at the Palais des Sports Léopold-Drolet.
With the score tied 2-0 at the start of the third period, forward Kassim Gaudet made a great feint on Phoenix defender Etienne Tremblay-Mathieu before beating goalkeeper Samuel St-Hilaire between two players.
The latter had a more than complicated game, scoring five goals with 32 shots. His counterpart on the other side of the ice, Montreal’s Canadian prospect Quentin Miller failed to get a shot, conceding two goals at the very end of the game. The 18-year-old made 25 saves with 27 shots.
The party quickly began for Eric Veilleux’s men. They entered the score after 2 minutes and 57 seconds of the game thanks to Daniel Agostino. Members of the Quebec club also managed to flash the red light twice on the power play as Zachary Marquis-Laflamme and Xavier Lebel were able to draw St-Hilaire’s caution.
Pier-Etienne Cloutier and Nathan Plamondon-Michaud were the other two scorers for the Remparts. Andrew Belchamber and Lewis Gendron answered for Sherbrooke.
Thanks to the win, Quebec posted a 9-13-0 record, good for eighth in the Eastern Conference.
The Remparts will host the Drummondville Voltigeurs on Tuesday at the Videotron Center.
