MEDICINE HAT, Alta. - Trevor Cox scored two goals and Marek Langhamer made 43 saves to lift the Medicine Hat Tigers over the Kootenay Ice 4-1 in Game 7 of their second round Western Hockey League playoff series Wednesday.

Cole Sanford had a goal and two assists, and Steve Owre also scored for the Tigers, who will play the Edmonton Oil Kings in the Eastern Conference final starting Friday.

Landon Peel scored the lone goal for the Ice, just 51 seconds into the game.

Kootenay's Mackenzie Skapski stopped 24 shots in the losing effort.

Quote of the Day

I definitely think going back down helped me, I had a lot of confidence down there, I played a lot of minutes and I think that helped me a lot. With the 37 games up here, that gave me experience as well. I know what it takes to play in the NHL and now it's time for me to show that I'm capable of being a full-time NHL player.
