EDMONTON - Charles Inglis scored twice as the Saskatoon Blades erased a three-goal first period deficit to defeat the Edmonton Oil Kings 6-4 in Western Hockey League play Saturday night

Walter Wintoneak, Stefan Elliott and Marek Vidensky each had one for the Blades (44-16-7). Derek Hulak added an empty net insurance marker.

Goaltender Steven Stanford was pulled after allowing two goals on seven shots. Adam Morrison turned aside 23 in relief.

T.J. Foster, Tyler Hlookoff, Michael Burns and Garry Nunn scored for Edmonton (16-39-13), while Cam Lanigan stopped 43 shots in net, including 33 by the end of the second period.

Foster's goal gave him ten points in last eight games.

With less than three to go in the second, Duncan Siemens hauled down Michael Burns and the Oil King forward was awarded a penalty shot. Burns faked backhand and fired the puck, looking for the five-hole, but Morrison stacked the pads to make the stop.

Defender Sena Acolatse notched two assists in his 250th WHL game. The native Edmontonian spent the majority of his career with the Seattle Thunderbirds before joining the Blades just prior to the WHL trade deadline.

Saskatoon rode three power-play goals en route to the victory in the fourth and final meeting between the two teams.
