Friday News & Notes

Several first round playoff series could come to a close tonight.

The most shocking series, by far, has been between the No. 4 Val-d’Or Foreurs and No. 13 Blainville-Boisbriand Armada. After back-to-back loses in Blainville-Boisbriand, the Foreurs will try to stave off elimination on home ice tonight. Val-d’Or’s Julien Gauthier has been held to just two points while the Armada’s Philippe Sanche and Etienne Montembeault have been very good.

The Moncton Wildcats can advance to the second round with a win in Victoriaville tonight. This series has gotten a little chippy.

Saint John, Charlottetown and Shawinigan, all up 3-1 in their respective series, can all advance with wins tonight as well. Cape Breton and Chicoutimi are currently tied 2-2.

Rouyn-Noranda and Gatineau have already advanced thanks to sweeps.
