RESULTS

Friday, Dec. 15 – Tulsa 5, Colorado 3  (BOK Center – Tulsa, OK) | Box Score | Video Highlights

>> In the first meeting of the season between the Oilers and defending Kelly Cup Champions, Tulsa jumped out to an early 1-0 lead thanks to a goal from newcomer Mark Bennett on his first shift 1:20 into the game.

Saturday, Dec. 16 – Allen 5, Tulsa 2  (BOK Center – Tulsa, OK) | Box Score | Video Highlights

>> The Americans vaulted into a 3-0 first period lead, thanks to a natural hat trick from forward Vincent Arseneau. After the third tally, Tulsa replaced starting goaltender Jake Hildebrand with backup Devin Williams. Minutes into the second period, Casey Pierro-Zabotel added a short-handed breakaway goal to make it 4-0. After a long wait, Oilers fans were able to celebrate the team’s annual Teddy Bear Toss, when Garrett Ladd snapped a shot past Allen goaltender Jeremy Brodeur with 1:45 left in the middle frame. Bryan Moore increased the Americans lead to 5-1 in the third period, before Mike McKee brought the Oilers back to within three, completing the scoring.

After 41 days away from the BOK Center, Tulsa ran the home point streak to 5 games Friday in the 5-3 victory over Colorado.
