Edmonton loses at Memorial Cup
SHAWINIGAN, Quebec – Ryan Rupert and Bo Horvat scored in the first period and the tight-checking London Knights held on for 4-1 victory over the Edmonton Oil Kings in the final round-robin game for both teams at the Memorial Cup on Tuesday night.
Greg McKegg also scored and Austin Watson added an empty-net tally for London, which outshot Edmonton 28-21 and held the Oil Kings to 0 for 6 on the power play.
Keegan Lowe scored for the Western Hockey League champion Oil Kings.
The Knights can take first place and get a bye to the final if Saint John beats the host Shawinigan Cataractes in the last round-robin game tonight.
If Shawinigan wins, the Cataractes will take top spot because they won their game against London.
