This was easy

A quiet Saturday evening with one New York Ranger and one New York Islander prospect in action. Both saw their teams earn victories as they contributed in their own ways.

First it was Mitchell Theoret (NYI 2011 7th) and his Barrie Colts earning a 5-0 win over the Belleville Bulls to tie their OHL Eastern Conference Finals at 1-1. Theoret scored his 9th goal of the playoffs for Barrie's 3rd goal which was a power play goal coming at 6:29 of the 2nd period.

The goal was all Theoret as he made himself a home in the slot and took advantage of a Belleville defender screening his own goalie and this goal broke the game open for Barrie. Stealing home ice from the Bulls could just be the difference maker the Colts need to edge a Bulls team that is almost dead even skill-wise with the Colts.

Theoret's 9th goal puts him in a tie with Vincent Trocheck of Plymouth for goals scored. The series now shifts to Barrie for game's 3+4 starting on Monday night.

In the QMJHL, Samuel Noreau (NYR 2011 5th) and his Baie-Comeau Drakkar earned a hard fought 2-1 win over the Blainville-Boisbriand Armada in game 2 of their QMJHL semifinal series. It was a mostly quiet game from Noreau who took one shot as his Drakkar went up 2-0 in their series with the Armada.

The series shifts to Blainville-Boisbriand for games 3+4 starting on Tuesday.
