Barre-Boulet missed his second straight game, but the Armada didn’t miss a beat behind a goal and three points from Alexander Katerinakis (2018 draft eligible). After a scoreless 1st period, the two teams traded 2nd period goals before Drake Batherson (OTT, 2017 4th round pick) scored just past the midpoint of the 3rd for what would be the game and series winner. Katerinakis scored and assisted on two empty netters late in the game as Val-d’Or threw everything at the Armada to keep the series alive. The Armada are the first to punch their ticket to the quarterfinals. The QMJHL playoff bracket is re-seeded after the first round, so it may be later in the weekend before Blainville-Boisbraind’s next opponent is named.

Halifax got goals from five players and Joel Bishop (undrafted) led the way with a goal and three points. The Drakkar twice tied the game, before Benoit Olivier-Groulx (2018 draft eligible) and Xavier Parent (2019 draft eligible) scored goals in the 3rd period to deliver a Halifax win.

On Tuesday night, the series shifted to Baie-Comeau and the Drakkar did not disappoint the 1800+ fans at the Centre Henry-Leonard, delivering a 4-2 win behind two goals from Gabriel Fortier (2018 draft eligible). The Mooseheads got off to a 1st period 2-0 lead, but the Drakkar scored four unanswered. Somppi was an injury scratch for the second straight playoff game.
