After equalizing in the middle of the third period, Dubé threaded the needle after just 41 seconds in the extra period.

The Islanders led 3-1 after just over 25 minutes. Jakub Brabenec scored twice, while Montreal Canadiens prospect William Trudeau scored his seventh goal of the season.

Olivier Nadeau and Mavrik Bourque completed the scoring for the Mauricie team.

With nine goals and 25 points in 16 games, Bourque received the Guy-Lafleur trophy, given to the best playoff player, after the game.

Sent to relieve Antoine Coulombe, who allowed three goals on 22 shots at the start of the game, Charles-Antoine Lavallée made 17 saves in the visitors' net.

Francesco Lapenna was helpless on four of the Cataractes' 25 shots.

This is the first victory in 53 years of history for the team led by Daniel Renaud. She won the Memorial Cup in 2012 when the tournament was held in Shawinigan.
