VAL D"OR, Que. - Pierre-Maxime Poudrier scored twice and added an assist, and Antoine Bibeau made 43 saves as the Val-d'Or Foreur downed the Baie-Comeau Drakkar 6-3 on Sunday to force Game 7 in their Quebec Major Junior Hockey League final series.

Baie-Comeau hosts Game 7 on Tuesday.

The Foreurs jumped out to a 2-0 lead after Poudrier's first goal at 10:41 of the first period, and Richard's goal at 1:36 of the second. But Banville and Zykov led the Drakkar back to tie the game 2-2 before the end of the second period.

Val-d'Or's offence scored twice within a three-minute span of the third period, but Ranger's goal at 11:53 cut the Foreurs lead to 4-3.

Graves made it 5-3 and Poudrier's empty-net goal with 56 seconds to go sealed the win and capped off a four-goal third period for Val-d'Or.
