LONDON, Ont. — One thing the Edmonton Oil Kings seem tio specialize in is taking sizeable sellout crowds out of the game in the big game.

They did it twice in 10,000-plus seat rinks in Portland in Game 5 and 7 of the WHL Final. And they did it here Sunday night before a sold out 8,863 against the host London Knights in a 5-2 win at Budweiser Gardens at the Memorial Cup.

“I’m pumped up every time I can play in away games with a full crowd,” said Edgars Kulda, who scored two goals to lead the way. “I kinda like to make them a little more silence, you know.

“It gets me more fired up and makes me get more going,” explained the likable Latvian. “I like it when people cheer against me. Today it just helps me find a way.”
