Jung records first shutout for Edmonton in 4-0 victory over Kootenay @NHLdotcom

EDMONTON - Torrie Jung stopped 29 shots for his first shutout in an Edmonton uniform, leading the Oil Kings to a 4-0 win over the Kootenay Ice on Tuesday night in the WHL.

Jung, acquired from Kelowna on Oct. 22 for a sixth-round pick in the 2010 draft, has two victories and a shootout loss in three games with the Oil Kings (7-9-1-1). Tuesday's shutout was the first for Edmonton since Feb. 22 of last season against Prince George.

The Oil Kings jumped ahead on a power play at 12:49 of the first period, with Tomas Vincour jamming the puck in at the side of the net behind Ice goalie Nathan Lieuwen.

After Lieuwen responded with a big save early in the second period - coming across with the glove and robbing T.J. Foster of a sure goal to the low corner - Logan Proulx put the Oil Kings up 2-0 on a partial break, going high on the blocker side at 4:52.

The Ice thought they had the deficit cut in half on a Jesse Ismond shot from the top of the circle, but the goal was waved off as Tylan Stephens ran into Jung. Late in the second, Brent Raedeke's tip-in put Edmonton up 3-0.

Foster expanded the lead to 4-0, chipping the puck just over Lieuwen's pad at 7:55 of the third.

Lieuwen stopped 27 shots for the Ice.
