EDMONTON - Tyson Sexsmith made 12 saves for an easy shutout as the Vancouver Giants extended their winning streak to four games with a 2-0 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings in Western Hockey League action Thursday night.

Brent Regner opened the scoring for the B.C. Division-leading Giants (36-3-0-3), firing a wrist shot from the point that beat Oil Kings goalie Torrie Jung to the blocker side.

Brent Raedke nearly tied it up for Edmonton (20-22-2-4) halfway through the second on a feed from Brett Breitkreuz behind the goal-line, but Tyson Sexsmith made the save.

Mike Berube put the Giants up 2-0 on a power play, jumping in off the point for a tap-in goal at the side of the net on a pass from Mikhail Fisenko.

Jung turned aside 31 shots for Edmonton.

It was the second and final game between the clubs this season. Vancouver swept the series 2-0, including a 6-0 victory in Edmonton on Oct. 22nd.

Quote of the Day

Obviously there's a lot of expectations around me but it's something I try not to focus on. I'm just trying to go out there, be myself on the ice every day, try to get better, be myself around the guys in the locker room. I think that's what's made me successful and the person that I am.
