MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Dwight King scored two third-period goals, then assisted on Zach Boychuk's overtime winner as the Lethbridge Hurricanes beat the Medicine Hat Tigers 4-3 in Monday night's lone Western Hockey League game.

King's second goal of the game, short-handed at 17:29 of the third, gave the Hurricanes their first lead and looked like the game winner until Tigers forward Mark Isherwood scored shorthanded with just 0.7 seconds remaining.

Boychuk scored his second of the game just 27 seconds into overtime on the power-play to extend Lethbridge's winning streak to seven games.

Tomas Kundratek and Tristan King also scored for Medicine Hat (18-9-3-3).

Boychuk scored at 1:55 of the third period to tie the game 1-1 and King threaded a needle with a shot from the faceoff dot on a late period power-play to tie the game 2-2.

The Hurricanes (18-12-0-1) had won six straight games losing 2-1 to the Tigers Nov. 21 in Lethbridge.

Hurricanes netminder Juha Metsola stopped 37 of the 40 shots he faced, while Ryan Holfeld made 19 saves in the Medicine Hat net.

The Tigers were 2-for-7 on the power-play. The Hurricanes were 2-for-4 with the extra man.

I was surprised. I knew I got it. It's tough. You never know how hard it is until it registers on the gun. I got pretty much all I could into and you just hope for the best.
