Junior Extra: lost ice advantage for Oceanic


Ranked third in the Eastern Conference of the QMJHL just two weeks ago, the Rimouski Océanic lost nine of its last 10 games of the season to slip to fifth place and lose the advantage of the ice for the first round of the playoffs. Serge Beausoleil's men will face the Saguenéens of Chicoutimi. In the regular season, the Océanic won its four home games against the “Sags”, but failed to win on the Olympic-sized ice of the Saguenéens.
