Adam Erne scored two goals for the second straight game, helping the Remparts to a 6-3 Game 7 win at home over the Eagles. Quebec was down 2-0 until the waning seconds of the first period when they scored (Erne assist), then scored three more times in the second period and once early in the third to take a 6-2 lead. The Remparts avoided the upset and now take on Charlottetown in the quarterfinals. Quebec moves up to the third seed now that Blainville-Boisbriand -- Cedric Paquette's former team -- was upset in the first round. The top two seeds are Rimouski and Moncton.

Cam Darcy’s season and junior career ended Monday night with a 4-3 overtime loss to Charlottetown. The Islanders won the series, 4-2. Darcy can now join the Syracuse Crunch in some capacity should the Lightning/Crunch be interested. He was an eyelash away from making the team in the fall but was returned to juniors for his overage year. He could provide Syracuse with some skill depth at center.
