Steve DaSilva scores a goal and an assist as the Ice beat the Oil Kings @NHLdotcom

EDMONTON - Steve DaSilva and the Kootenay Ice continue to bully their way up the Central Division standings, recording their fifth straight win, 3-1 against the Edmonton Oil Kings in Western Hockey League action Friday night.

DaSilva recorded his twelfth and thirteenth point in seven games, assisting on Dustin Sylvester's game-winner in the third period on a two-man advantage and adding an empty net marker.

Kootenay (12-10-2-0) nearly scored first late in the period on the powerplay as a centering pass found Kevin King, but Oil Kings netminder Dalyn Flette stuck out the right pad.

The Oil Kings (9-11-1-3) put the first marker on the scoreboard 2:30 into the second period on a one-timer past by Clayton Cumiskey.

Edmonton quickly gave their lead away. Dalyn Flette attempted to clear the puck on a penalty kill and instead the puck found Arnaud Jacquemet's body in front and bounced into the open cage.

Flette was forced to make a save on Michael Stickland with 35 seconds left in the second as Stickland stopped a pass out in front and curled it on his backhand to keep the score tied at one each.

Sylvester's marker came at 1:56 of the third frame as he settled a hard pass from DaSilva before lifting it over a sprawled Flette.

Kootenay added their empty net goal with one second left.

Both Lazaruk and Flette stopped 23 shots apiece.
