WHL Roundup: Lazar scores 2, Oil Kings take 2-0 lead over Tigers in East final

EDMONTON - Curtis Lazar scored twice and Tristan Jarry made 32 saves as the Edmonton Oil Kings edged the Medicine Hat Tigers 3-1 on Sunday for a 2-0 lead in the Western Hockey League's Eastern Conference final.

Edgars Kulda scored a goal and assisted on another for the Oil Kings.

Medicine Hat goaltender Marek Langhamer stopped 43 shots in defeat.

Quote of the Day

I mean, any of those 14 teams (in the lottery) it would have been an absolute honor. If I am selected by Edmonton it will be amazing, a dream come true. They have a lot of amazing young players there.
