Senators’ 2013 first-round pick Lazar scores OT winner to end longest game in Memorial Cup history

May 24, 2014, 12:24 AM EDT

Curtis Lazar was part of history Friday night.

Lazar, a first-round draft pick of the Ottawa Senators last June, scored the overtime winner on a deflection to send the Western Hockey League’s Edmonton Oil Kings through to the Memorial Cup final against the Guelph Storm on Sunday.

His goal, a nifty deflection in front of Val-d’Or goalie Antoine Bibeau, at 2:42 of the third overtime ended the longest game in Memorial Cup history.

    Terrific game ended by a very good goal. Heck of a lot more exciting than the last Habs-NYR game, and with much less BS too. Guelph players had to love watching their next opponent go 3OT. It will be interesting to see what the Oil Kings have left in their tanks on Sunday.

    Go Oil Kings!
