PRINCE ALBERT, Sask. - Brendan Dowd had a pair of first-period goals to lead the Edmonton Oil Kings to a 4-1 win over the Prince Albert Raiders on Friday night in the Western Hockey League.

Dowd added an assist on Craig McCallum's empty-net goal in the final minute as the Oil Kings (22-24-2-4) equalled their win total from all of last season with 20 games left to play.

McCallum finished with a goal and two assists, while Brent Raedeke also scored in the victory.

Ryan McDonald had the lone goal for the Raiders (22-26-3-1), who are winless in five.

Torrie Jung's 24 saves preserved the win for Edmonton.

Garrett Zemlak started in goal for Prince Albert, but was pulled after allowing three first-period goals on 11 shots. Steven Stanford relieved and stopped all 27 shots he faced the rest of the way.
