Legault scores first two goals of the season in Oil Kings 2-1 win over Broncos

EDMONTON - Stephane Legault scored his first two goals of season as the Edmonton Oil Kings edged the Swift Current Broncos 2-1 in Western Hockey League action Tuesday night.

Legault opened the scoring on a two-man advantage at 13:11 of the first period, redirecting a Dylan Wruck shot just inside the left post behind Bronco netminder Eetu Laurikainen.

Legault struck again on the power play at 3:14 of the second period, this time slamming home a rebound off Laurikainen's left pad to make it 2-0 Oil Kings.

Zac Mackay scored for the Broncos at 17:35 of the second period, tracking down his own rebound and catching Edmonton goalie Laurent Brossoit off his post, and banking it off his left pad.

Edmonton (14-5-4) killed off all five Swift Current power plays, giving them 37 straight kills and eight consecutive games without allowing a power play goal.

Laurikainen appeared in his 16th straight game for the Broncos (9-12-5) and stopped 42 shots.

Brossoit made 26 saves for Edmonton.
