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.

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.

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

Quote of the Day

You've got to focus on playing good hockey. When we do that we give ourselves a chance to win games. Win games and then maybe we''ll have a chance at the end. You can't worry about something like (the division title) when we're not playing our best hockey down the stretch. We'll figure things out together the way we always do and get back on the right page.
