Random stat: The Sea Dogs completed a sweep of the Rimouski Oceanic to win the 2012 President Cup exactly five years ago today.

Three Things to Know
1. Callum Booth has now recorded four shutouts this post-season and is coming off back-to-back goose eggs.

2. The Armada's offence has struggled mightily in this series. They are 0/13 on the power play while Alex Barre-Boulet has just one point and Pierre-Luc Dubois has been held pointless.

3. Remember, the Armada have been the comeback kings in this year's post-season. Coming back from 0-3 in a series against this Saint John team is going to be a much, much bigger challenge, though.

Notes: Mathieu Joseph leads Saint John in playoff scoring with 28 points and goals with 13... Thomas Chabot and Matthew Highmore each have a team high 16 assists... Alex Barre-Boulet continues to lead the Armada in points (30), goals (14), and assists (16)... Saint John's penalty kill is operating at 90.8% this post-season, allowing just six goals... Saint John is averaging a league best 4.44 goals per game while allowing a league low 1.71 goals against per game... Julien Gauthier will serve the second game of his two-game suspension tonight... Joseph has assists in four straight games... Joseph has points in eight straight road games.

Regular season numbers:
Next game: If a Game 5 is needed, it will take place on Friday night at 7 p.m. at Harbour Station.
