Oil Kings PK Falters in 7-2 Loss

The Edmonton Oil Kings came off a successful Teddy Bear Toss last night and started Sunday’s game against the visiting Lethbridge Hurricanes with a strong 2-0 lead.

The game then took a bad, bad turn south as the Oil Kings wore out the ice heading to the penalty box in the second period and their PK unit was just 1/6 leading to a Canes 7-2 rout over Edmonton.

GOALTENDER:

SAVE OF THE GAME:

An unbelievable save by Boston Bilous midway through the third period was a thing of robbery. While killing a penalty, Bilous made one save and was down and out leaving a wide open net for a Canes player who rifled it toward the gaping net. However the rookie netminder dove face-first and snared it out of the air with his glove stunning the crowd.

 TURNING POINT:

The Oil Kings held a 2-0 lead late into the first but then began what would be a string of penalties leading to an even larger string of goals.
