Oilers rattle off three unanswered goals, beating Wichita 3-1

TULSA, Okla. —The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks and the AHL’s San Diego Gulls, ended Wichita’s five-game point streak with a 3-1 victory over the Thunder at INTRUST Bank Arena on Thanksgiving eve.

Stefan Fournier began the scoring, finishing a seam pass to the back door for his league leading fifth power-play goal of the season. The goal was the lone tally of the period, setting the score 1-0 in Wichita’s favor at the break.   

Logan Nijhoff tied the contest 1-1, tipping a power-play blast past Evan Buitenhuis 1:43 into the second half of the game. It was the Gulls forward’s first professional goal. Eddie Matsushima netted the second power-play goal of the period just 18 seconds before it’s conclusion, giving the Oilers a 2-1 lead and Matsushima nine goals in his last 10 games.

Tyler Poulsen concluded the scoring 3-1 Oilers 2:14 into the final period. The forward’s goal was the only even-strength marker in the game and gives Poulsen six points in his last six outings.  

Colten Ellis had a stellar performance, denying 29 of Wichita’s 30 shots en route to First-Star honors.  

The Oilers now host the Thunder at the BOK Center on Black Friday at 7:05 p.m. The series returns back to Wichita on Saturday, Nov. 26 before eventually returning to Tulsa for a 4:05 p.m. tilt — the annual Paint the Ice game — on Sunday, Nov. 27 at the BOK.
