ALLEN, TX – The Allen Americans defeated the Tulsa Oilers 6-2 Friday in a game that had 126 combined penalty minutes at the Allen Event Center, as Tulsa suffered its seventh straight defeat.
In a first period that saw 76 combined penalty minutes, the Americans scored three times to lead 3-0 after one. First, Gary Steffes redirected a shot from the point past Oilers goaltender Colin Stevens six minutes into the game. Allen then scored on back-to-back power plays at 6:52 and 12:35 of the frame, with goals from Spencer Asuchak and David Makowski, respectively.
The Oilers bounced back in a big way in the second period, outshooting Allen 15-4 in the frame. Wes Cunningham tallied a power play goal on a point shot through a screen for the second straight night, and Tyson Fawcett scored his first goal as an Oiler just eight seconds later to make it 3-2. That was the score after two periods.
Makowski scored his second of the game on another Allen power play 3:05 into the third period, and Joel Chouinard added a score 34 seconds later to open the Americans lead back up to 5-2. Greger Hanson provided Allen’s sixth goal to finish the scoring. The Americans went 4-for-6 on the man-advantage, while the Oilers went 1-for-6.
