Forgive the Quebec League's Blainville-Boisbriand Armada if the team starts off their next playoff series a little slow. The Armada eliminated Rimouski last night in the most incredible fashion, coming back from a 4-0 first period deficit, then tying the game 7-7 with three minutes to play before winning in overtime on the road. Oh, and that OT goal went in with 7:02 remaining in the period.

Latvian import Nikita Jevpalovs (No. 71) scored both the tying goal (I kid you not, his seventh of the playoffs) and the winner in overtime (seven plus one). Check out his heroics:

The Armada lost the first two games of the quarterfinal before beating the Oceanic in Game 3 – but even that win took double overtime. Blainville-Boisbriand (just outside of Montreal) now takes on the top-seeded Baie-Comeau Drakkar in the semifinal.
