SHAWINIGAN, Que. -- The Shawinigan Cataractes got goals from six different players as they coasted to a 6-1 victory over the Edmonton Oil Kings in the tiebreaker game Thursday night at the Mastercard Memorial Cup.
The win put host Shawinigan (2-2) into the semifinal tonight against the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League champion Saint John Sea Dogs (2-1). It will be the Cataractes' third game in as many nights.
The winner advances to the final Sunday night against the Ontario Hockey League champion London Knights (2-1).
The Oil Kings (1-3), never found their stride after beating Shawinigan 4-3 in the tournament opener. The last Western Hockey League club to be the tournament's first casualty was Kelowna in 2005.
