ECHL
Maxime Clermont and Elmira are tied, 1-1, in their opening series versus Florida. Clermont allowed five goals on 28 shots in Friday's Game 1 before the Jackals posted an 8-2 win in Game 2 on Saturday. Game 3 is Wednesday in Elmira.

OHL
Artur Gavrus
and the Owen Sound Attack are even at a game apiece in their second-round matchup with Plymouth after beating the Whalers, 3-1, on Sunday. The series continues Tuesday in Owen Sound.

Gavrus posted two goals and three assists, including the eventual series-clinching tally, for the Attack in their six-game triumph over Sault Ste. Marie in the opening round.

QMJHL
Stefan Matteau
's Blainville-Boisbriand Armada (QMJHL) are two wins away from advancing to the third round of the QMJHL playoffs. Matteau notched the go-ahead goal in the Armada's 5-4 win over Val-d'Or on Saturday, securing a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-seven set, which continues Tuesday.

Matteau has two goals and four assists in seven games this postseason.

WHL
Damon Severson
and Kelowna (WHL) fell into a 2-0 series hole with their 5-1 loss to Kamloops on Sunday, but the Rockets have already shown they can overcome postseason adversity. They erased a 3-0 series deficit in the first round before coming back to defeat Seattle in seven games. They won Game 6 and 7 in overtime, becoming only the second team in WHL history ever to win a best-of-seven after dropping the first three games.
