TULSA TAKES DOWN FLORIDA TO SNAP SKID

Oilers halt a five-game winless streak in a comeback win over the Eastern Conference-leading Everblades on “Autism Awareness Night”.

Box Score

TULSA, OK – The Tulsa Oilers took down the top team in the ECHL, the Florida Everblades, Friday in a 3-1 comeback win on “Autism Awareness Night” at the BOK Center.

The Everblades broke a scoreless deadlock towards the end of the opening period when Stephen MacAuley tipped a Logan Roe shot past Oilers goaltender Devin Williams. Florida outshot Tulsa 16-7 in the frame.

The Oilers bounced back and outshot Florida 10-5 in the middle frame, as Garrett Ladd tied the score at 1-1 with a power play blast from the point. It was Ladd’s 16th goal in 28 games since joining the Oilers in early December.

Tulsa captain Adam Pleskach pocketed the game-winning goal 5:49 into the third period with a quick wrist shot from low in the right circle. Charlie Sampair added an empty net tally to seal the 3-1 victory, and Williams stopped 28 of 29 shots for the Oilers, who snapped a five-game winless skid, and halted Florida’s five-game point streak.

The Oilers and Everblades meet one final time Saturday at 7:05pm on the York Plumbing Ice at the BOK Center. Catch the action on the Sports Animal, www.tulsaoilers.com or ECHL.TV, with coverage starting at 6:45pm.
