EDMONTON - A pair of third-period goals by Kevin Sundher and a 42-save performance by Mark Friesen lifted the Chilliwack Bruins to a 3-1 win over the Edmonton Oil Kings on Friday night in the Western Hockey League.

After a scoreless first two periods, Sundher's game-winner came on a shot from the slot that beat Edmonton goalie Torrie Jung five-hole at 7:20 of the third.

Chilliwack (10-20-2-2) had the first good scoring chance of the game in the second period, but Chris Collins hitt the post to Jung's glove-side.

Edmonton (15-18-1-3) nearly scored the first goal late in the period atfter Brendan Dowd tipped a shot from the point. Bruins goalie Mark Friesen got a piece of it and reached back to keep the puck from crossing the line.

The Bruins ended the scoreless deadlock 1:06 into the third after a rising point shot by Scott Ramsay slipped through traffic and beat Jung top corner.

Edmonton responded 3:03 later as Michael Burns redirected Clayton Cumiskey's point shot past Friesen.

Sundher's second goal, the conversion of a two-on-one with Ryan Howse, gave Chilliwack some insurance.

Jung stopped 17 shots in net for Edmonton.
