It’s now a best-of-three series in the WHL's Eastern Conference Final. 

Egor Sidorov scored the overtime winner as the Saskatoon Blades edged the Moose Jaw Warriors 5-4 to even up the series at two games apiece. Three of the four games in the series have needed overtime.

Brandon Lisowsky had a goal and two assists for the Blades while Braden Yager had two goals and a helper for the Warriors. 

Game five is in Saskatoon on Friday night with game six in Moose Jaw on Sunday.

Meanwhile, Marcus Nguyen had two goals and an assist to lead the Portland Winterhawks to a 5-2 win over the Prince George Cougars last night and a 3-1 lead in the Western Conference Final. Nate Danielson added a goal and three assists for Portland, who host game five tonight.

Oilers punch ticket to round two

Leon Draisaitl had two goals as the Edmonton Oilers eliminated the Los Angeles Kings for a third straight season after a 4-3 win in game five on Wednesday at Rogers Place.

Evander Kane and Zach Hyman also scored for the Oilers and former Broncos goaltender Stuart Skinner made 18 saves.

Edmonton will face either the Vancouver Canucks or the Nashville Predators in the next round of the playoffs. The Canucks lead the series 3-2 with game six in Nashville on Friday.

Elsewhere, Jason Robertson scored the winner on the power play with 3:28 left in regulation as the Dallas Stars edged the Vegas Golden Knights to take a 3-2 series lead against the defending champions. Evgenii Dadonov and Matt Duchene also scored for the Stars. Game six is in Vegas on Friday.

Tonight, the Toronto Maple Leafs will look to force a seventh and deciding game of their series with the Boston Bruins at Scotiabank Arena. The Leafs won 2-1 in OT on Tuesday to stave off elimination against the Bruins, who are looking to avoid losing a second straight playoff series after holding a 3-1 lead.
