The Cape Breton Eagles can advance to the QMJHL semifinals.

They need one more win against Chicoutimi in their second round series.

Game 4 goes Wednesday night in Quebec.

The Eagles posted a 6-2 victory Tuesday night thanks to a hat-trick by Jacob Newcombe, and grabbed a 3-0 series lead.

Cape Breton has not been to the third round of the playoffs since 2007.
