In the WHL playoffs, Mark Pysyk assisted on the game's first goal as Edmonton edged Moose Jaw 3-2 to take a commanding 3-0 series lead in the WHL Eastern Conference final. The steady 6'2 defender was excellent throughout, using his stick smartly and always being in the right spots in all zones.
In fact, at one point in the middle frame the Warriors announcers stated, "There is no but. Mark Pysyk is good."
The Oil Kings go for their third straight sweep, 23rd win overall (going back to regular season), and first-ever berth in the WHL Championship Wednesday in Moose Jaw.
