November 29, 2013, Lethbridge (ISN) – The Edmonton Oil Kings almost didn’t solve Corbin Boes Friday night, but when they did, it was enough.

It took Edmonton 53:47 and 42 shots to beat the Lethbridge Hurricanes (3-21-2-2) netminder, but late goals from Mitch Moroz and Curtis Lazar led the Oil Kings (15-9-0-1) to a 2-1 victory in Lethbridge.

The Oil Kings put on a dominant performance through the first two periods, outshooting the Hurricanes 34-6 through two periods. However, it was Riley Sheen putting the home side on the board first, snapping a scoreless tie with a power play goal 11:14 into the third period.

Desperate for a goal, the Oil Kings finally put one past Boes 2:33 later as Moroz banged home a second chance effort to tie the game. Moroz was at it again minutes later, setting up Curtis Lazar for the eventual game winner.

Tristan Jarry made 15 saves to pick up his 14th win of the season as the Oil Kings outshot the Hurricanes 45-16. Boes finished with 43 stops in a losing effort.

Edmonton will be back in action Saturday night in Kootenay as they visit the Ice.
