Game #49 - Brandon at Edmonton (January 28, 2014)

35. Curtis Honey
33. Jordan Papirny

6. Ryan Pilon - 2. Ryan Pulock
7. Eric Roy - 9. Rene Hunter
11. Taylor Green - 5. Colton Waltz

21. Tyler Coulter - 23. Tim McGauley - 15. Peter Quenneville

- John Quenneville (upper body, week-to-week) misses his second straight game for Brandon today with Braylon Shmyr and Kord Pankewicz also scratched.

- Brandon enters Tuesday's game having gone 6-1-1-0 in their last eight contests.  The Wheat Kings are one point behind Swift Current for first-place in the WHL's East Division and can take over sole possession of top spot with a victory today.

- Jayce Hawryluk's goalless streak is now at 12 games and counting.  The second-year forward hasn't scored since December 10th.

- The Wheat Kings may want to keep an eye on Edmonton F Henrik Samuelsson.  In seven career game against Brandon, Samuelsson has eight goals and 15 points.  That includes a pair of goals in Edmonton's 5-4 overtime victory on December 31st.

- The Oil Kings have won 11 of their last 12 games, a stretch that started with their New Year's Eve victory over Brandon.  The streak, which includes back-to-back wins over Calgary this past weekend, has thrust Edmonton into first-place in the Eastern Conference.
