Sherbrooke scored the game’s final three goals, all in the third period. The game-winner was scored with 29 seconds left in regulation.

In an interview with La Presse, Erne said he was bitter about USA’s decision, saying team officials never gave him a reason why he was released after making the team last year. He’s using the decision as motivation for the rest of the season and through the Memorial Cup.
