Josh Currie scored two goals and had an assist to lead the way. The captain now has 24 goals on the season and leads Quebec’s Mikhail Grigorenko by two points for the league lead.

Louick Marcotte, Victor Provencher and Erik Robichaud also scored in the win. Tomas Pavelka had two assists while Alexis Pépin, Matthew Bursey, Jimmy Oligny, Alex Micallef, Jack Nevins and Marcotte had singles.

Grigorenko, Jason Houde and Axel Rioux scored for Quebec with assists to Anthony Duclair (2), Ryan Culkin, Houde and Pierre-Maxime Poudrier.

Maxime Lagacé made 24 saves for the win while Remparts backup Zachary Fortin took his first loss, giving up four goals on 26 shots before being replaced for the final six minutes.

The Rocket improved to 14-10-2 while Quebec dropped to 19-6-0-1. The Remparts lead the Telus East Division and are third in the league behind Halifax and Blainville-Boisbriand.
