CHL Playoff Notebook: May 8, 2019


After winning 14 straight playoff games, the Ottawa 67’s have now dropped two in a row:

Ontario Hockey League

That’s back-to-back wins for the Guelph Storm, who topped the Ottawa 67’s by a 5-4 score to even the series through four games. Leading the way for the Storm was Montreal Canadiens prospect Nick Suzuki, who finished with three points, while fellow forward and St. Louis Blues draft pick Alexey Toropchenko wrapped up the night with a two-goal effort. The Storm will now look to take the series lead with a road victory Friday.

Western Hockey League

The first-place Prince Albert Raiders pushed the Vancouver Giants to the brink of elimination following a tidy 1-0 victory in Game 4 in which netminder and Toronto Maple Leafs prospect Ian Scott stopped 36 shots to notch his fifth shutout of the postseason, while draft-eligible right-wing Brett Leason picked up the lone tally early into the final frame. The Giants hope to stave off elimination Friday on home ice.

Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

The President’s Cup Final resumes Thursday as the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies and Halifax Mooseheads will battle it out in Game 5. Each squad has taken two wins apiece so far, with the most recent contest ending in a 5-1 victory for the Mooseheads on home ice.
