It took a breakaway goal in overtime for the Edmonton Oil Kings to snap a 16-game winless streak and a three-game scoring drought.
Adrian Van de Mosselaer had the winner in overtime to give the 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 are last in the Eastern Conference.
Edmonton hadn't scored in 197 minutes 40 seconds since Van de Mosselaer put one in against Medicine Hat on Jan. 24.
