EDMONTON - Adrian Van de Mosselaer's breakaway goal in overtime gave the Edmonton Oil Kings a 5-4 victory over the Prince Albert Raiders in Western Hockey League action Sunday.

Van de Mosselaer picked up a loose puck coming out of the penalty box and streaked down the left wing alone, tucking the puck past Raiders' goaltender Garrett Zemlak's stretched left pad.

Michael St. Croix scored twice, and Sebastian Svendsen and T.J. Foster added one each for the Oil Kings (11-32-11), who snapped a 16-game winless streak and a scoreless drought 197 minutes 40 seconds.

Justin Maylan had two goals for Prince Albert (27-24-3), one that opened the scoring at 11:10 of the first. Maylan lifted the rebound after Cam Lanigan made a remarkable save with his right pad on a cross-crease feed from Colin Reddin.

Jordan Rowley and Brandon Herrod also scored for the Raiders.

Lanigan bailed himself out early in the second, turning the puck over to Jordan Hickmott who fed it out in front for a wide open Herrod. Lanigan scrambled back to the crease and dove across the net with his stick fully extended to prevent the goal.

Svendsen's goal was his first as an Oil King and sixth of the season. The game also marked Prince Albert netminder Zemlak's return from a concussion suffered after being run over by Shayne Wiebe Jan. 20th against Brandon.

Lanigan stopped 46 shots for the Oil Kings, while Zemlak stopped 17.
