WHL Roundup: Edmonton Oil Kings advance past Medicine Hat to championship final

EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oil Kings are back in the Western Hockey League championship final for the third consecutive year.

Brett Pollock's second goal of the game 14:22 into the third period was the winner as the Oil Kings defeated the Medicine Hat Tigers 4-3 on Saturday to win the series 4-1.

The Oil Kings now face the Portland Winterhawks yet again for the Ed Chynoweth Cup. Edmonton beat Portland for the Cup in 2012, but were beaten in 2013 by the Winterhawks.

Mads Eller, with a short-handed goal, and Edgars Kulda also scored for Edmonton, which had three goals in the second period.

Cole Sanford replied with two goals for the Tigers while Jacob Doty chipped in with a single.

Tristan Jarry made just 16 saves in net for Edmonton. The loss ruined a spectacular effort by Tigers goaltender Marek Langhamer, who stopped 48-of-52 shots.

Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
