12/4 Recap: Pysyk chips in as Oil Kings roll

Mark Pysyk scored his second goal of the year Sunday as Edmonton won their sixth in a row with an 8-3 pounding of Saskatoon. Pysyk, who has five points in his last three games, sent a power play shot late in the second period that deflected off two defenders before going in the net to give the Oil Kings a 6-2 lead. The six-game win streak is record for the modern-day Oil Kings franchise.



Nathan Lieuwen stopped 20 of 22 shots as Kootenay lost at Swift Current, 2-1. The month of December has been unkind to Lieuwen with all three outings resulting in losses. Despite the rough patch, the 6'5 netminder continues to lead all WHL goaltenders with a 1.84 goals against average and .935 save percentage.

In the OHL, Steven Shipley logged a -1 as Niagara was shut out by Brampton, 3-0. Former Jr. Sabres forward Phil Lane paced the Troops with two goals and an assist while West Seneca native Dylan Blujus ('12) added two helpers for the winners.
