Right now, in Canadian junior, we’re at the stage of seeing which teams will win their respective league finals to earn a ticket to Kamloops for the Memorial Cup.
It’s the same story in the QMJHL, as the Quebec Remparts and Halifax Mooseheads cross swords tonight in the Maritimes in a series tied 1-1.
But in Ontario, game #3 took place yesterday. It’s a series that’s being closely watched by Canadiens fans, as London’s Logan Mailloux and Peterborough’s Owen Beck are both involved and looking to book their place in the next round.

It’s interesting to note that Beck, in yesterday’s game, scored from an impossible angle.

As Stéphane Leroux mentions, the Petes are currently playing the role of a Cinderella team, as they were not among the CHL favourites at the start of the playoffs.
It also doesn’t help that the Knights are without their #1 goaltender. And when you see replays of yesterday’s game, you get a better idea of what he means.
In Ontario last night, the Cinderella team of the #LCH series, the Peterborough Petes (27th in the Canadian standings), took a 2-1 lead in the #OHL series with a (P) win over the #Knights, who are missing their injured #1 goaltender Brett Brochu #VersLaCoupeMemorial https://t.co/aum6C2lggH

Yesterday, Beck also picked up an assist – in addition to his goal. He had been blanked in the first two games of the series and now has 15 points, including seven goals, in 20 playoff games.
As for Mailloux, he picked up an assist in yesterday’s loss. He had scored in Game #2, bringing his total to 19 points, including seven goals, in 18 playoff games.
