Guillaume Gauthier, Ryan Graves, Adam Erne, Raphael Maheux and Jerome Verrier supplied the offence for the Remparts.

Miguel Sullivan got the win after stopping all five shots he faced in 8:02. Sullivan replaced Alexandre Belanger, who turned aside 26-of-31 shots in 51:58. Callum Booth started for Quebec but was pulled after allowing four goals on 10 shots in 23:35. Zachary Fucale took the loss after making 17 saves.

The Screaming Eagles went 2 for 7 with the man advantage while the Remparts scored twice on six chances.
