11/23 Recap: Lieuwen backstops; Pysyk out again

Nathan Lieuwen turned aside 25 shots Wednesday as Kootenay rode a six-goal second period to a 7-3 win at Kamloops. The win was Lieuwen's 12th of the year to go along with his league-best 1.88 goals against average (only WHL netminder under 2.00) and .934 save percentage. Winners of four straight, the ICE continue their B.C. Division run Friday at Kelowna.

Mark Pysyk missed his third straight game with an upper body injury as Edmonton dominated Lethbridge, 10-3. Pysyk is listed as day-to-day, giving him a chance of suiting-up Friday when the Oil Kings host Medicine Hat. The injury should not keep him from attending Team Canada's Selection Camp in a couple of weeks. The camp roster should be announced at the beginning of December.
