Box Score
MONTREAL — It wasn’t quite the gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona but it was pretty darn close. In a wild game and unexpected result, Olivier Hinse tallied twice and added a helper as his No.8-seeded Concordia Stingers surprised top-seeded McGill 6-4 to open the OUA East best-of-three quarter-final series at McConnell Arena, Wednesday.

The game featured five power-play goals, two-empty netters — including the game-winner — and a costly game misconduct for the Redmen.
