Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

A three-point night by draft-eligible forward Raphael Lavoie powered the Halifax Mooseheads to a 6-1 smashing of the Quebec Remparts to set up a winner-takes-all Game 7 on home ice Tuesday.
The Victoriaville Tigres forced a Game 7 versus the Val-d’or Foreurs after piecing together a 6-2 win in which centre Anthony Poulin led the way with two goals and two assists.

The Victoria Royals advanced to the second round after icing the Kamloops Blazers in six games following a 4-1 win and a two-goal performance from left-wing Brandon Cutler.
