Player to watch: With three assists last night, Nathan Noel now has an impressive five goals and five assists in just six career QMJHL playoff games. Noel recorded just four points after his 20-game point streak ended on Feb. 17, so last night’s performance was a good sign.

Three Things to Know
1. The Sea Dogs ended a three-game losing streak with last night’s victory.

2. After ending the regular season with five straight loses, Marc-Antoine Turcotte had a solid 25-save performance in the game one victory.

3. Matthew Highmore, Mathieu Joseph and Thomas Chabot all returned from injuries last night but it appears Luke Green and Adam Marsh will remain out tonight.
