Montreal Junior 0 @ Rimouski Oceanic 4
W/C Luca Cunti, RIM: 0-1-1, E, 2 PIM, 1 SOG
Cunti extended his points streak to six games with his second period power play assist. He was actually credited with two assists in the game before a late scoring change. Cunti was a focal point on the Oceanic power play, operating several dishes and give-and-go plays out of both corners down low. At this point in the season, he remains primarily a playmaker staying outside the high-traffic areas. He continues to be Rimouskiâ€™s points leader (tie) with seven.
