EDMONTON - Edmonton Oil Kings' Cam Lanigan made 27 saves to earn a 3-2 win against the Moose Jaw Warriors in the Western Hockey League on Friday night.
Brett Breitkreuz opened the scoring for the Oil Kings (4-1-0-1) with eight minutes left in the first period, cutting to the middle and firing the puck just above Jeff Bosch's left pad on the power play.
Moose Jaw (3-3-0-0) saw their deficit double 40 seconds later after a point shot caromed off a defender's stick right to Oil King forward Michael Burns, catching Bosch out of position.
Moose Jaw's power play came close to cutting the lead in half in the second. Dylan Hood got a stick on Spencer Edwards' point shot, but Lanigan snapped out the right pad to preserve the 2-0 margin.
Jason Bast, who scored twice, put Moose Jaw on the board at 12:37 of the second. Clinton Atkinson tipped captain Travis Hamonic's point shot in front, the rebound off Lanigan dropping onto Bast's stick for a tap-in.
Edmonton earned it back late in the period, Logan Proulx tipping a point shot by Brent Raedeke underneath Bosch's glove.
Bast pulled the Warriors to within one with less than two minutes in the game with a shot from the faceoff dot that beat Lanigan's glove.
Lanigan stopped 27 shots as Edmonton has won four in a row. Bosch stopped 21 in net for Moose Jaw.
