Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

Cape Breton Screaming Eagles 4 @ Moncton Wildcats 5 (SO)

C Cameron Darcy, CB: 0-2-2, +2, 0 PIM, 7 SOG, 14/19 FO, 1 Hit

2013-2014 Season: 65 GP, 35-47-82, +3, 51 PIM

Darcy (pictured) broke his personal 3-game pointless streak with two assists, and was a highlight save away from a third assist on a potential game-winner in the final seconds of overtime. Moncton won the shootout, 1-0, but their goal came after a lengthy review to see if the puck slid into the net under Francois Brassard’s pad as Brassard’s momentum carried him into the net. The Eagles fought back from down 4-1 to tie the game. Both of Darcy’s assists came in the third period. Conor Garland (undrafted) had a goal and three assists for Moncton. Garland, who is listed at 5-8 (generous), is second in the league in points with 50 in 27 games.
