Yvan Mongo and TJ Melancon had a goal and an assist apiece and Alexandre Alain scored once to round out the offence for the Armada (24-11-6), who are 4-0-1 in their last five games.
Mathieu Ayotte found the back of the net for the Remparts (21-18-4).
Samuel Montembault made 19 saves for the win as Evgeny Kiselev stopped 34-of-38 shots in defeat.
