Hockey: McGill knocks off UQTR for University Cup berth

Just a quick note that No. 10 McGill completed their playoff upset of No. 5 UQTR, winning 2-1 tonight in Montreal to sweep the OUA East final 2-0.

The Redmen have been airtight in the playoffs, with goalie Mathieu Poitras stopping 140-of-147 shots for a .952 save percentage during their 6-0 run through the playoffs. Aside from Game 2 in the first round against Carleton, they haven't been scored on twice in the game game.

UQTR just wasn't up to matching that stinginess after losing their No. 1 goalie, Sylvain Michaud, just 5½ minutes into Game 1. Of course, they just as easily could have lost with him in goal, the way McGill was playing its own end.
