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.
Chad Butcher responded with the Tigers' lone goal, on the power play halfway through the second period.
He is, in my opinion, one of the best defensemen in the NHL and continuing to grow. I think his game, from an offensive standpoint, he continues to drive our offense... I think there's still tremendous upside for Oliver.
