QMJHL Final: Rimouski roars back to send series to seventh game

Clapperton goes pointless as Oceanic overcome three-goal deficit to win in overtime.

The Rimouski Oceanic roared back from a 4-1 deficit in the second period to take game six with a 5-4 overtime decision over the Quebec Remparts. The Oceanic win sends the President's Cup final back to Rimouski for a decisive game seven tonight.

Quebec's Massimo Carozza and Adam Erne scored in the first period to stake the Remparts to a 2-0 lead.

Jan Kostalek got Rimouski on the board with a tally 1:23 into the second period.

Matt Murphy scored five minutes later to restore Quebec's two-goal lead and chase starter Louis-Philip Guindon.

Erne scored his second goal, and 21st of the playoffs, 22 seconds later to put the Remparts up by three.

Alexis Loiseau got one back for the Oceanic at the 14:14 mark of the middle frame.

Rimouski got third period markers from Samuel Laberge and Loiseau to send the game to overtime. Loiseau's game-tying goal came with 1:01 left in regulation time.

Kostalek bagged his second of the game, from Anthony Chapados, just 1:03 into the extra session to send the series back to Rimouski, where the Oceanic will look to be the first team to win on home ice.

Florida Panthers prospect Chris Clapperton finished the game with 3 shots on goal and a -2 rating. Clapperton has 23 points (11G/12A) in 17 postseason games. Philippe Desrosiers got the win in relief, turning aside six of the seven shots he faced.

Tonight's game will take place at 7 p.m. at the Colisee Financiere Sun Life.
