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

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
