Oil Kings Fall 3-2 to Royals

Last month the Victoria Royals came into Rogers Place and snuck away with a heartbreaking last second 3-2 OT win. Fast forward a few weeks later and the Edmonton Oil Kings looked to exact revenge on the Island by jumping out to a 2-0 lead. However, the Royals chipped away at it and scored three unanswered to win the game 3-2.

BOX SCORE

OIL KINGS 2 @ ROYALS 3

SOG:                      Oil Kings: 34        Royals: 22

GOALTENDER:

Travis Child (4-5-1-0) 19/22

SAVE OF THE GAME:

Travis Child robs Matthew Phillips who was in alone midway through the second period for one of his 19 stops on the night.

TURNING POINT:

Midway through the third period, Tyler Soy would score on the power play and give the Royals the 3-2 lead. That would be all they needed as they won by that score.

PLAY OF THE GAME:

Scott Atkinson buries his head and skates 100 feet to chase down Matthew Phillips who was on a shorthanded breakaway. Atkinson catches Phillips and sweeps the puck off his stick without taking a penalty and possibly saving a goal.

Then about five minutes later (with less than a minute left in the period) the Royals had another breakaway and this time Fedor Rudakov chases them down and knocks the puck away.

PLAYER OF THE GAME:

Matthew Phillips was his usual brilliant self as he created chances all night long and finished the game with a pair of assists.

UNSUNG HERO OF THE GAME:

Fedor Rudakov played a nice sound defensive game and helped stave off the potential tying goal in the second with a smart back check.
