QMJHL: Joshua Roy snapped Olympic’s 21-game winning streak in overtime

QMJHL: Joshua Roy snapped Olympic’s 21-game winning streak in overtime

Joshua Roy scored his 42nd goal of the season 51 seconds into overtime, giving Sherbrooke Phoenix an important 5-4 victory over Gatineau Olympic on Wednesday night.

In addition to propelling Sherbrooke to the top of the Western Conference standings, Roy also ended an impressive 21-match Olympic winning streak.

Amal Al Kindi played the champions for Phoenix in spectacular fashion, going there with an accurate backhand shot at Francesco Lapina’s expense.

It was Roy’s second point of the night, and 92nd of the season, in his 50th game.

Olivier Adam signed the win for Phoenix with 23 saves. Lapina was busier, surrendering four times in 42 rounds.

The two teams vying for first place now have 101 points on the clock. The tiebreaker currently belongs to Sherbrooke, with two games remaining on either side.

Ethan Gauthier, Justin Gill and Jacob Melanson were other leading scorers for the Phoenix team, who thought they were driving after taking a 3-0 lead midway through the second period.

However, the dangerous inhabitants of Gatineau did not give up, and a double from Zachary Dean, as well as a goal from Riley Kidney at the end of the second and at the beginning of the third, returned the opponents to square one.

Melanson, who assisted Roy’s game-winning goal, came within the 50th goal in Sherbrooke’s victory.

Dumais approaches the mark of Ramzi Abed

Jordan Dumais put in another fine performance, scoring two goals and four assists in the Halifax Mooseheads’ 9-0 win over the Charlottetown Islanders.

That six-point night put the 19-year-old just one point short of Halifax’s best offensive production Ramsey Abed, with 137 points.

Abed had a 57-goal and 80-assist campaign in his final year with the Mooseheads, during the 1999-2000 season. The Mooseheads have two games left in the season.

It was the sixth time in ten matches during the month of March that Dumais had collected at least three points in a meeting.

He now has 54 goals and 82 assists, which puts him 23 points ahead of his closest pursuer, teammate Josh Lawrence.

Earlier in the evening, the Columbus Blue Jackets’ third-round draft pick became the first player in Mooseheads history to collect more than 80 tackles during a single regular season.

Lawrence was not to be outdone in the success of Sylvain Favreau’s side: he finished off the night’s feats with two goals and three assists.

Victorious in their last five games, the Mooseheads (49-10-7) have continued to maintain their momentum in the battle with Quebec Remparts for first place in the overall standings.

Remparts do not abdicate. Victory 51

Zachary Bolduc added his 48th and 49th goals of the season, and the Quebec Remparts edged out the Shawinigan Cataracts 6-3.

Bolduc, who has accumulated 99 points in the 2021-2022 season, not only has one goal from the 50-point selection team, but also one of his 110 points.

Authors of a sixth consecutive win, the Remparts are in a battle to finish with Halifax atop the standings, with 105 points each, after their first 66 games.

Vsevolod Komarov also scored twice, while Daniel Agostino and Cam Thompson also stuck the needle for Quebec (51-12-3).

Pier-Olivier Roy had two assists, while captains Théo Rochette and Jérémy Langlois each had two.

For the home team, Félix Lacerte, Leo Briard and Loris Rafanomizantsoa – in the final two with a 55-second gap to tighten the mark in the third period – cheated William Russo’s alertness.

In front of the Cat Cage (28-33-5), Antoine Colomb has been tested 45 times.

Mercer Blameless Against Tigers

Riley Mercer recorded his first shutout of the season with 27 tackles, and the Drummondville Voltigoers shutout the Victoriaville Tigres 4-0.

In his club win, Xavier Fortin hit the 20-goal mark, while Manix Landry, Justin Côté and Loic Goyette also moved up the ropes.

Against the Tigers’ point guard, Nathan Darvo missed two goals on 30 shots.

Eagles overthrow wild cats

Antoine Roy scored 1:39 into overtime, capping a comeback by the Cape Breton Eagles, who beat the Moncton Wildcats 6-5.

Trailing 5-3 with 20 minutes left, the Eagles tied the game with goals from Jacob Newcombe and Samuel Johnson. The latter moved the ropes for the 33rd time this season.

On his team’s backhand, Yoan Loshing distinguished himself with a 1-goal and 2-assisted performance. He notably scored his 29th net of the campaign.
