EDMONTON - Brent Raedeke's goal with 6:20 left in the third period was the winner as the Edmonton Oil Kings doubled up on the Prince Albert Raiders 4-2 in Western Hockey League action Saturday night.

Edmonton (11-14-1-3) got off to a 2-0 lead in the first period on goals by Jeff Lee and Mark Pysyk, but the Raiders slowly chipped away at the Oil Kings, eventually tying the game midway through the third period before Raedeke put Edmonton up for good.

Adrian Van de Mosselaer added an insurance marker for the Oil Kings with 1:16 remaining in the game.

Torrie Jung stopped 26 shots for Edmonton, while Garrett Zemlak made 25 saves for the Raiders.
