In the third period, Currie scored on the power play to give the Rocket a 4-1 lead. The goal was Currie’s 19th of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League season.

The Rocket wrapped up a two-game road trip and improved to 12-7-1-0, and passed Rimouski for the sixth overall spot.

Victor Provencher (1-1), Louick Marcotte (1-1) and Ben Duffy (1-1) had the other Rocket goals. Assists went to Currie and Erik Robichaud.

Scott Oke had a pair of goals for the Oceanic while Summerside native Ryan MacKinnon had his third goal of the season.
