EDMONTON - Curtis Lazar scored twice as the Edmonton Oil Kings downed the visiting Brandon Wheat Kings 5-2 on Saturday in Western Hockey League action.

Dylan Wruck had a goal and two assists for the Oil Kings (34-11-5), who extended their win streak to four games, and Michael St. Croix had a goal and an assist.

Stephane Legault scored once and Henrik Samuelsson chipped in with three assists to round out Edmonton's offence.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
