10/15 Recap: D-men point; forwards quiet

Tyler Myers had a steady night, finishing +2 with an assist in Kelowna's 3-1 win over Prince Albert. On the power play in the early third, Myers found Jamie Benn (DAL) who cashed the game winner. The Rockets (6-5) will travel to Everett on Friday against Kyle Beach (CHI) and the Silvertips. In the OHL, Drew Schiestel (-3) had an assist in Niagara's 4-2 loss to Erie. The Otters owned the final 20:00, scoring a pair of goals while limiting the Dogs to just five shots. Factoring into goals in nine of his ten games this season, Schiestel will ride a five-game point streak into Plymouth on Friday. Elsewhere, J.S. Allard was -1 as Quebec needed a shootout to win their tenth straight game, 5-4 over Val-d'Or. The winless Foreurs took a 3-0 first period lead on the Rems, but Patrick Roy's club roared back with three goals of their own in the second. The teams traded goals :18 apart in the third before an exciting shootout (sans Allard) rounded out the action. The Remparts are now off until the 24th. Chicoutimi's Jacob Lagacé and Gatineau's Paul Byron were both quiet statistically in the Sags 4-1 defeat of the Piques. Lagacé registered one shot on net for the winners, while Byron (-1) buzzed about all game but was shut down at the dot, winning just four of 15 draws in the battle of sub-.500 clubs. Jordon Southorn fired five of his team's 23 shots, but came up empty in PEI's 4-3 loss to Saint John. The Sea Dogs themselves fired 43 shots, with reigning QMJHL Offensive Player of the Week Alex Grant (PIT) staying hot with a goal and two assists to lead the Sea Dogs.
