GOALTENDING LIFTS RUSH OVER OILERS

Multi-point games from McLaughlin, Sheriff and Bertuzzi not enough in 6-4 loss to Rush  

RAPID CITY, South Dakota —The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks and the AHL’s San Diego Gulls, lost 6-4 to the Rapid City Rush at The Monument on Friday night.     

Alex Aleardi scored the lone goal of the opening frame 5:29 into the action, beating Daniel Mannella low on the glove side from the slot to put the Rush up 1-0 heading into the second period.

Jon Martin extended the Rush lead to 2-0 5:18 into the middle frame. Jackson Leef slashed the Rush lead in half, following up on the play and depositing a goal 34 seconds after Martin’s tally. Blake McLaughlin tied the game 2-2 on the next shot, tipping a blast from Kylor Wall 32 seconds past the Oilers’ opener. Aleardi notched his second at the 13:48 mark of the middle period, restoring Rapid City’s one-goal lead. Dante Sheriff knotted the affair heading into the third period, slamming home a chance on Adam Carlson’s blocker side.

Brett Gravelle and Matt Marcinew tallied back-to-back unanswered goals off the faceoff to put the Rush up 5-3. Colton Leiter capitalized off a turnover with 4:38 remaining to double up Tulsa 6-3. Sheriff scored his second, last-minute goal in a frame, reaching 10 on the season and closing the score 6-4 in Rapid City’s favor.

The Oilers aim to bounce back tomorrow, March 18 at The Monument at 8:05 p.m. CT against the Rush.
