QUEBEC CITY -- The Oshawa Generals have earned a spot in the Mastercard Memorial Cup final, but there was a hairy moment before it became official.
Leading by one goal with 4:24 left to play, one of their top penalty-killing defenceman, Dakota Mermis, was sent off for kneeing, followed a minute later by teammate Cole Cassels for delay of game.

QUEBEC CITY - Hunter Smith could breathe easier after scoring the winning goal for the Oshawa Generals.
The six-foot-six Calgary Flames prospect bulled his way up the middle and scored on his own rebound to break a tie and lift the Ontario Hockey league champion Generals to a 4-3 victory against the Rimouski Oceanic in the opening game for both teams at the Mastercard Memorial Cup on Saturday.
Hunter was sent off for hooking and Jan Kostalek scored on the ensuing power play to tie the game 3-3 for the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League champions 3:46 into the third period. But Hunter made up for it with a brilliant individual effort on the game winner at 9:24.Read on...
