BLOG: Bertolucci unlikely PP hero

by Marc Ciampa / Edmonton Oilers

The Oil Kings power play was having trouble connecting in the tournament, going 0-for-5 against Guelph and then 0-for-7 against London until an unlikely hero ended it.

Luke Bertolucci scored with 1:37 left to play in the game on Edmonton's eighth power play of the game and 13th in the tournament.

"I'm not usually on the power play so it was kind of different for me but I was excited to get that one," said Bertolucci after the game.

The winger added that it's just a matter of time before they really start clicking.

"We have great personnel on the power play. We have all the talent in the world out there. We just have to execute it."

Bertolucci talked about the focus that the Oil Kings had going into the game.

"We had to refocus after our last game. Some of the guys stepped up in the room and said stuff. We knew what we had to do and now we have a big one against Val d'Or."
