Isaac Dufort had already scored the first goal in the first third, but Pier-Etienne Cloutier equalized for the guests.

In goal, Louis-Antoine Denault managed to keep his team in the game by making 33 saves in the loss. Charles-Édward Gravel stopped 17 shots for Baie-Comeau.

However, the Remparts were solid four on five as they took advantage of the Drakkar's five numerical advantages. Furthermore, Éric Veilleux's players hit the mark in a man-advantage situation.

Quebec will look to end a run of three straight losses against the Chicoutimi Saguenéens on Sunday. The Remparts are at the bottom of the Eastern Association standings with 34 points in 45 games.
