EDMONTON - Jeff Lee scored a power-play goal to extend his point streak to eight games while Craig McCallum scored the winner as the Edmonton Oil Kings defeated the Kamloops Blazers 3-2 on Friday night.
McCallum's winner came 13:52 into the second period after he tried to centre a pass to Brendan Dowd but the puck bounced off Tyler Shattock and past Blazers goalie Justin Leclerc.
Kenton Dulle opened the scoring on the power play for the Blazers midway through the opening period when he buried a cross-crease pass from Tyler Shattock past Oil Kings goalie Torrie Jung.
Edmonton (14-16-1-3) responded four minutes later with their own man-advantage goal when Lee streaked into the slot and stepped into a no-look pass from Brent Raedeke.
The Oil Kings pulled ahead late in the period as Leclerc got a piece of a McCallum chip shot, but Brett Breitkreuz slid the loose puck into the net.
C.J. Stretch's wrist shot at 18:03 of the second period pulled Kamloops (13-15-1-3) to within a goal.
Jung preserved the win after robbing Tyler Shattock with a pad save with less than five seconds to go in regulation. The Blazers had only three shots in the final frame.
Both goalies turned aside 21 shots for their squads.
