Home Advantage

Adam Kambeitz had 2 goals, and Daulton Siwak picked up the winner, as Red Deer took a 2-0 lead in their best-of-seven series with a 5-1 victory over Edmonton Saturday night.

Ryan Nugent-Hopkins would get things started 10:39 in, taping home a feed from Andrej Kudrna.  With 2:16 remaining in the period, Daulton Siwak wrapped one home past goaltender Jon Groenheyde.  Jordan Hickmott put Edmonton on the board with 58 seconds left in the first, and it was 2-1 Red Deer after one.

The second period would remain scoreless, until a determined Brett Ferguson stripped an Oil King defender behind the net, and fed Adam Kambeitz for the shorthanded goal.  It was 3-1 Red Deer after two periods.

The third period was the Rebels’ best of the game, controlling the tempo and limiting Edmonton’s scoring chances.  Justin Weller would connect on a breakway out of the penalty box at 12:38, and Kambeitz would finish things off on the powerplay with 44 second remaining.

Each team had 28 shots on goal.  Edmonton would once again be held without a powerplay goal (5 chances), while Red Deer went 1 for 5.

Game 3 goes Monday in Edmonton.  Visit for all the ticket info if you’re following the team on the road.  Ticket information will be released at a later date for the next Rebels playoff home game.
