CRANBROOK, B.C. - Curtis Lazar scored twice and Dylan Wruck had three assists as the Edmonton Oil Kings won 6-1 over the Kootenay Ice in WHL action on Wednesday night.

Michael St. Croix opened the scoring on a power play when he was left open in front of the net and buried a loose puck.

Lazar made it 2-0 after a faceoff win in the Ice zone and scored with a wrist shot high on the glove side.

With only nine seconds left in the first period Stephane Legault banged in a rebound to make it 3-0.

In the second period Wruck stole the puck behind Kootenay's net and fed Lazar in the slot who scored with a one-timer.

The Ice scored early in the third period on an odd-man rush finished by Jesse Ismond who picked the top corner on the glove side.

Edmonton (6-2-2) got that goal back less than two minutes later as Kristan Pelss created a partial breakaway and scored with a shot high on the stick side.

Mark Pysyk ended the scoring with a wrist shot that went into the net off goalie Laurent Brossoit's shoulder.

Brossoit finished with 31 saves for the Ice (4-2-0).
