Darcy extended his point streak to seven games while announcing his figurative “return” to the QMJHL. Darcy, who was in search of a pro contract this fall, struggled after coming back to Cape Breton and was eventually scratched and traded. His five-point game tonight gets him to a point-per-game pace for the season and Sherbrooke will enjoy the QMJHL Second-Team All-Star for the rest of the year. This is the player Cape Breton thought they were receiving when the Lightning decided to send Darcy back to the Q in September.

Quebec won in a shootout for the second straight night. Julio Billia saved Erne’s attempt in the skills competition. Erne had a brief, three-game point streak snapped.
