Peter Crinella broke the deadlock 5:08 into themiddle stanza, roofing the puck off a rebound created by a Cameron Hebig shot. JackKopacka beat Gillam off a turnover in the Thunder zone 1:13 later, givingthe forward his first goal since being assigned to Tulsa by the Anaheim Ducksearlier in the week. Patrick Parkkonen scored with 1:53 left in the secondframe, blasting a riser from the left point over the glove of Eriksson Ek,giving the Thunder a one-goal lead before the end of the middle period.

Stefan Fournier built off the momentum of the lategoal, depositing a tap-in chance into a yawning cage less than a minute intothe final period. Danny Moynihan answered with his team-leading 10thgoal of the season, batting the puck out of the air, cutting the Thunder leadto 3-2. Ostap Safin restored Wichita’s two-goal lead at the 9:18 mark of thefinal frame, popping a chance short side over the shoulder of Eriksson Ek.
