VAL-D'OR, Que. - Felix Girard scored in overtime as the Baie-Comeau Drakkar defeated the Val-d'Or Foreurs 4-3 on Wednesday to tie the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final at two games apiece.

Jeremy Gregoire, Denis Gorbunov and Alexandre Ranger each scored for Baie-Comeau, which traded goals with Val-d'Or after a scoreless first period.

Anthony Mantha scored twice, including a short-handed goal, while Anthony Richard had a single for the Foreurs.

The game featured a goalie duel between the Drakkar's Philippe Cadorette, who stopped 39 shots, and the Foreurs' Antoine Bibeau, who countered with 46 saves.

Mantha opened the scoring 10:48 into the second period but Gregoire tied the game three minutes later.

Richard put Val-d'Or ahead again to start the third period before Gorbunov's power-play goal again tied the game 2-2.

Mantha briefly put the Foreurs ahead 3-2 shorthanded at 15:46, but just 39 seconds later Ranger scored on the power play to force overtime.

Game 5 goes Friday in Baie-Comeau, Que.
