Six points for Joshua Roy in a convincing Phoenix win
The QMJHL playoffs have been underway for a few days now. The second round got underway last night.

Today, the four favored teams crushed their opponents.

First, the Olympiques gave themselves a two-game lead in the series with a (second) 5-0 victory. Canadiens prospect Riley Kidney picked up an assist on the winning goal.

In Quebec City, Patrick Roy’s team easily defeated the Océanic 5-1. The Remparts, too, lead their respective series 2-0. And it took two games before tempers flared behind the bench. We know that Roy and Rimouski’s Serge Beausoleil are two of the Q’s most intense head coaches.

After the game, Beausoleil complained that the Remparts players had tried to ridicule his team.

Here’s the footage in question:

The next few games are likely to be intense.

As for Joshua Roy and the Sherbrooke Phoenix, they easily disposed of the Voltigeurs by a score of 8-1. In a convincing victory, the CH prospect collected no less than six points. That’s 18 points in six games since the start of the playoffs. That’s three points per game.

Like Gatineau and Quebec City, Sherbrooke leads the series 2-0 against its opponents. All three series are likely to come to an end very quickly.

Finally, the fourth and final series pitting the Halifax Moosheads against the Moncton Wildcats is tied 1-1. Halifax crushed Moncton today by a score of 7-1, but the underdogs won yesterday.

The most surprising thing about all this is that Halifax, who are the big favourites in this series, finished with 33 more points than Moncton in the regular season. But in the playoffs, anything can happen, of course.

The series resumes on Wednesday for three games in Moncton. The series, which is led 2-0 by one team, will resume on Tuesday. Hopefully, the association finals will be tighter.
