The Petes improved to 8-0 in the playoffs, sweeping the Fronts out of the postseason in the Eastern Conference Semifinals. Paquette scored his third goal of the playoffs and Matt Spencer was plus-3, raising his league-leading rating to plus-16. Peterborough goalie Dylan Wells (Oilers) scored the sixth Petes goal, into an empty-net. Then he did the bench drive-by like a forward. You know things are going well for the Petes when that happens. The Petes will face the winner of Mississauga and Oshawa. The second-seeded Steelheads lead 3-1 after winning in overtime Thursday in Game 4.

Erie had a 2-0 lead entering the third period, looking to go up 3-1 in the series heading back to the States, but London scored four times in the third period to even things up, 2-2. Cirelli scored on the power play for Erie, giving them a 2-0 lead late in the first period. Stephens assisted on the game-tying goal midway through the third period. He played more center than usual in Game 4; he’s been on the wing much of the last two months. Taylor Raddysh was on the ice for all four London goals. Game 5 is Saturday in Erie.
