The Royals pounced on their chances and puck luck soon followed, as Victoria ended its five-game road trip with a 5-3 beating of the Edmonton Oil Kings.
Five different players scored for Victoria – in order, Matt Dykstra, Axel Blomqvist, Ben Walker, Jack Palmer, and and Brandon Magee – and the Royals now have 10 days before their next game, on December 27 against Prince George.
Edmonton opened the scoring on Tuesday night, off a goal Mitchell Moroz, but Victoria scored four straight to take a commanding lead only 49 seconds into the second period. Lane Bauer and Dysin Mayo added goals for the Oil Kings, who had 40 shots on Victoria goalie Patrik Polivka.
Goalie Tristan Jarry made 22 saves on 26 shots against for Edmonton, as the Royals added their last marker with the net empty.
