MAVERICKS PULL EVEN ON WEEKEND SERIES WITH 3-1 WIN
Kansas City mirrors Tulsa’s Friday result, defeating the Oilers 3-1.
INDEPENDENCE, MO — The Oilers couldn’t win back-to-back games at Cable Dahmer Arena, falling 3-1 to Kansas City on Saturday night.
Kansas City took advantage of a power-play filled opening 20 minutes, scoring the opening goal on the man advantage with 4:12 left in the period. Brodie Reid corralled the puck in the high slot before ripping it top shelf past Roman Durny, setting the score at 1-0.
Vincent Marleau leveled the game at 1-1 with his first professional goal — a wraparound tuck coming 2:50 into the middle frame of his second game. Marcus Crawford restored Kansas City’s lead 1:02 into the back half of the contest, unleashing a shot off the post and past Durny.
Nick Pastujov picked up his own first professional goal with just under four minutes remaining, flinging a shot on a spinning chance, closing the game 3-1 in the Mavericks’ favor.
The Oilers head back for a rubber match against the Mavericks at the BOK Center at 4:05 p.m. tomorrow. Fans are encouraged to wear any Adam Pleskach apparel they have to celebrate the captain’s achievement of playing 500 professional games.
