Halifax held serve at home, beating the Drakkar 4-3 on Saturday night to take a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-7 QMJHL Finals. B-C continues to do a good job on MacKinnon and Drouin, who have combined for just two assists through two games of the series. Drouin had his 11-game point streak snapped. Game 3 is Tuesday in the Drakkar’s barn.
Note: With the Lightning picking No. 3 in this summer’s draft, it is widely expected they will choose either MacKinnon or Drouin with their first round pick. We will follow both prospects for the duration of their playoff run as we did with Steven Stamkos after the Lightning won the 2008 draft lottery.
