Tyler Hlookoff scores the game winner as Edmonton edges Saskatoon @NHLdotcom

EDMONTON - Tyler Hlookoff's game winner six minutes into the second period lifted the Edmonton Oil Kings to a 2-1 victory over the Saskatoon Blades in Western Hockey league action Saturday night.

The game was marred by a brawl which erupted with 9:17 remaining in the second after Edmonton's Drew Nichol hammered Saskatoon's Travis Toomey with an elbow in the corner.

Edmonton (11-14-1-3) struck first 8:50 into the opening period. McCallum fed J.P. Szaszkiewicz who wired a shot glove side past Blades netminder Braden Holtby.

Oil Kings netminder Alex Archibald stoned Blades forward Walker Wintoneak after giving up a long rebound, sliding across to get just enough of the puck with his glove arm.

The Blades (10-18-1-0) would tie it with 1:30 remaining in the first as the puck took a strange bounce off the end boards out front to Colton Gillies, who hammered it into the open net. Both Ondrej Fiala (1-4-5) and Stefan Elliott (2-5-7) extended their point streaks to four games on the play.

Archibald saved the game early in the third for Edmonton on a penalty kill, as he snapped the right pad out on a cross-crease one-timer by Jordan Braid.
