WHY THEY LOST

Travis Toomey's short-hander opens the third to make it 3-1 Saskatoon and it's all downhill from there for the Oil Kings.

BIG PLAY

With five minutes left in the second, the Oil Kings failed to convert a five-on-three that would have tied it.

BIG SAVE

Braden Holtby squared up on Kings's co-captain who circled back on a short-handed break. It could have tied it shortly before the Blades got the 2-0 goal.

BIG FIGHT

A couple of solid-sized Northern Alberta boys - Oil Kings's Michael Burns (Edm.) and the Blades's Darian Dziurzynski (Lloydminster) went toe-to-toe in the third.

UP NEXT

Tomorrow at Regina, 7 p.m., Team 1260
