Brossoit stops 34 shots as the Oil Kings down the Blades

SASKATOON - Laurent Brossoit stopped 34 shots as the Edmonton Oil Kings hung on to defeat the host Saskatoon Blades 2-1 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Brandon Baddock and Keegan Lowe both scored in the second period to put the Oil Kings (29-9-5) up 2-0.

Josh Nicholls responded for the Blades (21-20-1) midway though the third period, however that was all Brossoit would let by as his club held on to a one-goal lead for the final 10:04 of the game.

Andrey Makarov turned away 30-of-32 shots in a losing cause.

Edmonton went 0 for 3 on the power play while Saskatoon scored once on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
