Edmonton uses second-period scoring barrage to beat Medicine Hat 5-0 @NHLdotcom

EDMONTON - A second-period scoring barrage lifted the Edmonton Oil Kings to a 5-0 victory over the Medicine Hat Tigers on Wednesday night in the Western Hockey League.

Brent Raedeke scored a pair of goals to lead the Oil Kings (3-1-1), his second of the night pacing a four-goal second-period outburst. Torrie Jung stopped 31 shots to earn the shutout.

Edmonton opened the scoring 8:35 into the game, Raedeke picking off a blue-line pass from Mark Isherwood and firing one past the glove of Tigers goalie Tyler Bunz. Robin Soudek made it 2-0 early in the second period after stripping defenceman Cody Carlson of the puck and beating Bunz.

Less than five minutes later, Raedeke earned his second of the game on a point shot to the high blocker corner with Keegan Lowe screening in front. Brett Breitkreuz followed with a hard slap shot to the glove corner at 11:13, and Bunz was pulled in favour of Devon Dubyk.

Isherwood challenged Breitkreuz to a fight after the goal, which built momentum for the Tigers (2-1-1). Medicine Hat forward Bretton Cameron found himself alone in front, but Jung made a split save on his one-timer from a pass behind the net.

Michael Burns completed the scoring with his first of the season, shovelling a shot over Dubyk's glove at 16:31 of the second.

It was the third win in a row for Edmonton and Jung's first shutout of the season.

Bunz and Dubyk combined to stop 29 shots.
