Armada down Acadie-Bathurst Titan in first game of second-round series

It wasn't the start to the second round of the QMJHL playoffs that the Acadie-Bathurst Titan were hoping for on Thursday, April 6th.

The Blainville-Boisbriand Armada downed the Titan 6 - 2 to take a 1 - 0 lead of the best-of-seven series.

Jeff Viel and Vladimir Kuznetsov each found the back of the Armada's net once while netminders Reilley Pickard and Anthony Dumont-Bouchard stopped a combined 27 shots.

The Titan look to turn things around on Saturday, April 8th when they go into Game 2.

The Q-League playoffs return to the KC Irving Centre on Tuesday, April 11th for Game 3.

Elsewhere, Charlottetown has a 1 - 0 second-round series lead after defeating Cape Breton Thursday night.

They play their second of a best-of-seven on Saturday.
