2/21 Recap: Adam pots another pair

Luke Adam scored two goals and added an assist Sunday as Cape Breton downed Halifax, 4-1. Sabres prospects factored in on all four Screaming Eagles tallies on the afternoon with Maxime Legault scoring a goal and two assists and Jacob Lagacé adding a pair of helpers. The Eagles have now taken 15 of the last 16 games between the two clubs.

Trailing 1-0 at the end of one, Adam scored two goals five minutes apart in the second to give Cape Breton the lead for good. The afternoon's work ups his league-leading total to 43 goals on the season, leaving him seven shy of 50 with eight games to play. His 79 points are good for 3rd overall in the QMJHL despite playing just 48 regular season games.

In the WHL, Brayden McNabb (+2) assisted on the game-winning goal as visiting Kootenay defeated Medicine Hat, 3-1. With nine games to go, the Ice need just three points to clinch a playoff spot.
