BACK-HALF PUSH EARNS OILERS POINT IN OVERTIME LOSS

Three unanswered Tulsa goals force overtime before Rapid City eventually tops rubber match 4-3

TULSA, Okla. —The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks and the AHL’s San Diego Gulls, gained one point in a 4-3 overtime loss to the Rapid City Rush at the BOK Center on Sunday Evening.  

Calder Brooks picked up right where he left off the night before, opening the scoring 1-0 in Rapid City’s favor 1:53 into the action. Brooks extended the lead with his second of the period, firing home a power-play snapper with 25 seconds remaining in the frame.

 Alex Aleardi kicked off the second period scoring with his third of the season, potting with 5:58 left in the frame to set the score 3-0 Rush. Dylan Sadowy answered back, hammering a power play one-timer past Daniil Chechelev with 2:24 remaining in the period, altering the score to 3-1. Logan Nijhoff earned the first professional point of his career with the secondary assist on the marker.

Jackson Leef scored a mere 29 seconds into the final regulation frame, sending his own rebound into the back of the net and cutting the Rush lead to 3-2. Eddie Matsushima tied the game 5:01 into the third, converting an Oilers’ bounce behind Chechelev to force overtime. The goal was Matsushima‘s eighth in the last nine games.  

A mad scramble finished by Simon Lavigne with 2:20 left in the bonus period squeaked out a fourth Rapid City point on the week against the Oilers.  

The Oilers head into American Thanksgiving week with four games against the Wichita Thunder, starting Wednesday, Nov. 23 at 7:05 p.m. at INTRUST Bank Arena in Wichita, Kan. The Oilers then host Wichita on Black Friday, Nov. 25 at the BOK, getting underway at 7:05 p.m. in Tulsa.
