Siemens makes 33 saves as Prince Albert Raiders down Edmonton Oil Kings 4-1

EDMONTON - Luke Siemens made 33 saves Thursday to lead the Prince Albert Raiders to a 4-1 victory over the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Western Hockey League.

Logan McVeigh, Carson Perreaux, Mark McNeill and Josh Morrisey had the goals as Prince Albert (4-0-1) won its fourth in a row.

Travis Ewanyk replied for Edmonton (3-2-0), which lost to Prince Albert at home in regulation for the first time in five years.

Tristan Jarry stopped 17 shots in taking the loss.

McVeigh opened up the scoring 9:23 into the first on a one-timer to give Prince Albert the early lead.

Perreaux doubled the lead for Prince Albert halfway through the second, deflecting in a feed from the side boards by Shane Danyluk.

Siemens stopped Edmonton's Klarc Wilson with a breakaway glove save early in the second, then stood his ground on the goal-line later in the period.

Ewanyk pulled the Oil Kings within one on a power play early in the third, but McNeill restored the two-goal margin with a sharp-angle shot less than three minutes later.

Morrissey then added a short-handed empty net goal.

McNeill has points in all five games this season for Prince Albert, and leads the club in scoring with three goals and four assists.

The Raiders have now held the lead against opposition clubs so far this season for 176 minutes 57 seconds, while trailing for just 4:02.

Quote of the Day

You don't see many. The [Drew] Doughtys, the [P.K.] Subbans, those are guys that create offense from the back and then on top of that ability, the size that he has. In the West you play against some pretty big players, and being able to clear the crease and contain the [Ryan] Getzlafs and the [Corey] Perrys and [Anze] Kopitars and players like that, we're excited about him going back there.
