Capitals’ top defensive prospect Madison Bowey scored four points in the last two games of the Memorial Cup round robin. Bowey, who was held off the scoresheet in the first game of the tournament, netted a goal and two assists in a 7-3 blowout victory over the Rimouski Oceanic. He then followed that performance with an assist on the Rockets’ lone goal in a 2-1 loss to the OHL champions Oshawa Generals.
Bowey’s shot bounced off the stick of the Oceanic defenseman Jan Kostalek and deflected in the net protected by the Capitals 2014 training camp invite Louis-Philippe Guindon.
This probably shouldn’t have counted as an assist, but Bowey’s long-range shot placed intentionally wide led to a mad scramble in front of the net resulting in a goal by Gage Quinney.
For his third point of the night Bowey beat Flyers’ first-round pick defenseman Samuel Morin (who is not very good at skating, apparently). Let’s hope this is a glimpse of things to come in the Caps-Flyers rivalry.
In a loss to the Generals, Bowey started the play that led to another Quinney goal by jumping up on the rush.
As a result of a horribly complicated tie-breaker, the Rockets were awarded a spot in the semifinal game to be played on Friday.
