The Sea Dogs were the first team to advance to the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League’s final four after finishing off a sweep of the Baie-Comeau Drakkar last night. Every other quarter-final series will go at least five games.
Quebec leads Halifax 3-1 heading into Game 5 on Friday at the Metro Centre. Chicoutimi/Shawinigan and Rimouski/Blainville-Boisbriand are both tied at 2-2 heading into action tomorrow night.
Saint John will play the lowest seeded team that moves on. It is impossible for them to play the Cataractes (No. 2) or the Armada (No. 3) next round. That leaves Quebec (No. 5), Halifax (No. 6), Rimouski (No. 7), and Chicoutimi (No. 8) as possibilities.
This is the third straight year that the Sea Dogs will play in third round and the fourth time in five seasons.
