Tomas Pavelka scored the winning goal and also picked up an assist Wednesday as the P.E.I. Rocket defeated the Quebec Remparts 4-2 in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League.

Josh Currie, Matthew Bursey and Ben Duffy, into an empty net, also scored for the Rocket (17-10-2), while Maxime Legace made 26 saves to pick up the win.

Mikhail Grigorenko and Pierre-Maxime Poudrier had the goals for the Remparts (20-8-1), who got 28 saves from Francois Brassard.

Elsewhere in the QMJHL it was: Drummondville 3, Blainville-Boisbriand 2; Moncton 4, Val-d'Or 1; and Baie-Comeau 6, Gatineau 3.

At Charlottetown, tied 1-1 after two periods, Currie gave the Rocket their first lead of the night with a power-play goal just 59 seconds into the third.

The lead was short-lived, however, as Grigorenko knotted things up again just 90 seconds later.

But Pavelka then put P.E.I. ahead for good with an unassisted goal 7:42 before Duffy iced the game into an empty net with 40 seconds left in regulation.

P.E.I finished the night 1-for-4 on the power play, while Quebec was scoreless on its only man-advantage opportunity.
