4/24 Recap: Leduc unloads in loss; Pysyk looks "good"

Jerome Gauthier-Leduc scored his seventh goal of the playoffs Tuesday as Rimouski was defeated by Halifax 4-3 in game #3 of the QMJHL semifinal. The one-time missile tied the game at three midway through the second period. Martin Frk ('12) notched the game winner for the Mooseheads with a rocket of his own at 18:38 of the second, while Nathan MacKinnon ('13) notched a pair of assists for his 25th point in 15 playoff games. The Oceanic maintain a 2-1 series lead heading into Wednesday's game #4.

In the WHL playoffs, Mark Pysyk assisted on the game's first goal as Edmonton edged Moose Jaw 3-2 to take a commanding 3-0 series lead in the WHL Eastern Conference final. The steady 6'2 defender was excellent throughout, using his stick smartly and always being in the right spots in all zones.

In fact, at one point in the middle frame the Warriors announcers stated, "There is no but. Mark Pysyk is good."

The Oil Kings go for their third straight sweep, 23rd win overall (going back to regular season), and first-ever berth in the WHL Championship Wednesday in Moose Jaw.
