Brossoit stops 45 shots as the Oil Kings blank the Hurricanes

LETHBRIDGE, Alta. - Laurent Brossoit stopped 45 shots as the Edmonton Oil Kings blanked the host Lethbridge Hurricanes 4-0 on Thursday in Western Hockey League play.

The 19-year-old goaltender is 6-0-0 in his last six starts and has a 1.17 goals-against average and .952 save percentage during his personal winning streak. He is now 17-4-5 on the season, which places him eighth in WHL wins.

Stephane Legault scored twice for the Oil Kings (26-8-5), who have won three games in a row, while Mitchell Moroz and Klarc Wilson had a goal and an assist each.

The two-goal performance gives Legault four goals and six points in his last three outings.

Macoy Erkamps and Adam Henry were both minus-3 for the Hurricanes (19-18-5) as Ty Rimmer turned aside 30 shots in a losing cause.

Edmonton went 0 for 2 on the power play while Lethbridge failed to score on six chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Your team is going to want to recapture the feeling. What they're going to have to figure out is they're going to have to rewrite the story. Because you're going to rewrite the story doesn't mean you want a different end. It's just that you're going to have to learn that there's different challenges to get there, and if you're going to try and tap the same feeling, it ain't going to happen.
