Alexis Pepin and Ben Duffy each scored in the shootout Sunday as the P.E.I. Rocket defeated the winless Sherbrooke Phoenix 5-4 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Jimmy Oligny, with a goal and an assist, Pepin, Matej Beran and Victor Provencher scored in regulation for P.E.I. (5-2-0), while Duffy added three assists.

Maxim Lagace gave up four goals on 17 shots for the Rocket before being replaced by Antoine Bibeau, who stopped 10 shots the rest of the way.

Brent Turnbull, Carl Neill and William Couture each had a goal and an assist for Sherbrooke (0-7-1), while Vincent Richer also scored. Simon Desbiens picked up three assists for the Phoenix, who got 24 saves from Jack Flinn.
