Western Hockey League
The Edmonton Oil Kings now await their conference final opponent after ousting the rival Calgary Hitmen in four games as the deciding contest saw netminder Dylan Myskiw stop all 18 shots en route to his first career playoff shutout and a 6-0 final.
It’s all even through four games after the Saskatoon Blades won back-to-back contests on home ice, including Wednesday’s 4-1 decision versus the Prince Albert Raiders that saw the team’s leading scorer Max Gerlach pick up his sixth goal of the postseason.
The Everett Silvertips are on the verge of a quick exit after dropping their third-straight game to the Spokane Chiefs, falling 3-1 in which a two-point night by rookie forward Adam Beckman led the way for the opposition.
