Rockets edge Oil Kings in shootout

Kelowna wins five of seven games on pre-Christmas road trip

Jake Kryski and the Kelowna Rockets finished their road trip with a 5-2 record.

Without three of their top offensive weapons, the Kelowna Rockets still finished their pre-Christmas road trip in holiday style.

Jake Kryski scored the deciding goal in a shootout, as the Rockets downed the Oil Kings 2-1 Sunday night in Edmonton.

The Rockets closed their seven-game eastern tour with a 5-2-0 record.

Down 1-0 in the third period, Jack Cowell evened the score at 8:45 with his second goal of the season.

Overtime solved nothing, so for the first time this season Kelowna went to a shootout.

After unsuccessful attempts by Nick Merkley and Kole Lind, Kryski beat Patrick Dea to send the Rockets to their third win in as many nights in Alberta.

Michael Herringer stopped 28 of 29 shots he faced improving to 16-8-1-0.

The Rockets (22-12-2-0) next home game is Dec. 27 when they host the Kamloops Blazers.
