Justin Shugg (Hurricanes) and Jordan Myer (undrafted) each had two goals to lead the Majors to a road win in Game 2 of the OHL Finals to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the series. Lightning prospect Michael Zador, who still leads the OHL in goals against average for the playoffs at 1.10 from his brief time as Owen Sound's starter, sat backup Thursday for Scott Stajcer, who stopped 33 of 38 in the loss. Geoffrey Schemitsch (pictured) was scoreless and minus-1 for the Attack, who needs a win Friday in Mississauga in Game 3 to stay close in the series.

Gatineau scored twice in 1:20 early in the third period to break a 2-2 tie, then added an empty net goal with three seconds left to win Game 7 vs. Quebec and advance to the QMJHL Finals. The Olympiques completed an improbable, but not impossible comeback from down 3-1 in the series over the higher seeded Remparts. Lightning prospect Adam Janosik was scoreless for Gatineau, but was plus-2 for the night and was on the ice for the game winning goal. Gatineau now gets the privilege of facing one of the CHL’s powerhouses, St. John, for the championship and right to go to the Memorial Cup. That series will begin Thursday in New Brunswick.

Owen Sound, who scored 10 times on Windsor in their last game, could only manage two against J.P. Anderson (2011) Tuesday. Schemitsch had the puck stolen from him for the empty net goal to end the game. Game 2 is Thursday in Owen Sound.

Owen Sound got three assists from Geoffrey Schemitsch and three goals from Matt Petgrave (2011) to crush Windsor 10-4 and win the Wayne Gretzky Trophy as Western Conference champions. That title earns the Attack not only a match-up with Bobby Orr Trophy champion Mississauga for the OHL championship, but because the Majors are Memorial Cup hosts and have an automatic bid to that tournament, Owen Sound earns an invitation too as – at minimum – the OHL’s second best team. In Game 5 with Windsor the Spits had 1-0 and 2-1 leads and the game was just 4-2 Attack entering the third period. Owen Sound got two quick goals in the third and then added four more, including three power play goals. Two of Schemitsch’s assists were with the man advantage. Jack Campbell let in all 10 goals for Windsor.

Portland Rookie Brendan Leipsic scored his second goal of the playoffs at 7:44 of overtime to lead the Winterhawks to a 3-2 Game 3 win and take back home ice advantage in the series. Lightning prospect Tyler Johnson had an assist and was on the ice for both of Spokane’s goals. Spokane outshot Portland 43-32 in the match and had a 31-16 shot advantage after two periods. Reigning CHL Goaltender of the Week Mac Carruth (Blackhawks) was strong between the pipes for Portland. Game 4 is Friday in Spokane. Kootenay swept Medicine Hat and awaits the winner of Portland-Spokane.

The attack scored twice in the third to take a 3-1 lead, then hung on to win 3-2. Lightning prospect Geoffrey Schemitsch was scoreless in the game, but has six points in his last seven games. Michael Zador did not dress for Owen Sound. Stars pick Jack Campbell was Second Star with 41 saves for the Spits. Game 5 is Wednesday in Owen Sound.

No.1 Dubuque Fighting Saints 3 @ No.4 Fargo Force 0
Dubuque wins best of five series 3-0

C Jimmy Mullin, FGO: 0-0-0, -1, 0 PIM, 1 SOG
Season Totals: 52 GP, 23-37-60, +29, 26 PIM

And that’s that. Dubuque scored twice in the first period while outshooting the Force 13-5, then withstood a 14-1 shot onslaught in the third period to defeat Fargo 3-0 and advance to the conference finals. Lightning prospect Jimmy Mullin, who led the team in scoring during the regular season, was shut out of both this series and the qualifying round. That said, he had a great first (and only) season in the USHL and will take his talents to the Miami Redhawks of the NCAA next season.

Results from the QMJHL and OHL after the flip.
