Tickets to game five of the first round series between the Saint John Sea Dogs and Baie-Comeau Drakkar go on sale today at noon at Harbour Station.
The Sea Dogs forced a game five with a 4-2 victory over the Drakkar last night. Baie-Comeau now leads the best-of-seven series 3-1.
A game six, if necessary, would be played on Monday night in Baie-Comeau.
This year’s first round has lived up to the hype. The Rimouski Oceanic are the only team to have advanced so far, sweeping the Victoriaville Tigres. Every other series will go five games or more.
International Scouting Services released their April NHL Draft rankings this week.
Ranked 19th is Sea Dogs defenseman Thomas Chabot while Jakub Zboril is ranked 20th.
Zboril has a goal and two assists in four playoff games this year while Chabot has been held pointless.
RICHARD PLAYING WELL
Former Sea Dogs forward Joey Richard is having a strong post-season with the Gatineau Olympiques.
Richard has a goal and four assists in four playoff games, placing him second in team scoring. In 62 regular season games, the Dieppe native had 12 goals and 17 assists.
The Olympiques - Blainville-Boisbriand Armada series is tied at 2-2.
