Baie-Comeau can advance to the QMJHL Finals against Halifax with a win on Sunday against Cedric Paquette and the Armada. Paquette, who ignited an end-of-game brawl in Game 4 when he taunted the Drakkar, was fined $1,000 but not suspended for his actions. He was scoreless in Game 5 – his sixth straight game without a point. His longest scoreless streak in the regular season was two games.
