EDMONTON - Henrik Samuelsson led the way with two goals Wednesday as the Edmonton Oil Kings downed the Kamloops Blazers 5-2 in the Western Hockey League.
Tristan Jarry made 37 saves to get the win.
Aaron Macklin and Tim Bozon replied for Kamloops (25-8-3), which saw its winning streak snapped at four games. Cole Cheveldave stopped 30 shots in taking the loss.
Lazar opened the scoring at 13:31 of the first, finding a gap and cutting into the middle on the power play before lifting a shot over Cheveldave.
Macklin tied at 13:40 of the second, pouncing on a loose puck in the slot and slipping it past Jarry.
Edmonton restored its lead at 17:37 on a fortunate bounce as Lowe's point shot deflected off the Blazers' Sam Grist and right onto the stick of Benson, who made no mistake.
The Oil Kings expanded their lead to 4-1 as Samuelsson deflected a Musil point blast at 1:48 of the third period before firing a wrist shot past Cheveldave's blocker at 7:31.
Bozon brought Kamloops back within two at 14:22, but that margin was short lived as Moroz deflected Corbett's rocket to make it 5-2 Edmonton just 12 seconds later.
Jarry entered the contest leading the league with 1.62 goals-against average and sat third with a .931 save percentage.
