OILERS FALL TO GRIZZLIES 5-2

Early start powers Grizzlies to second-straight win on weekend 

WEST VALLEY, Utah —The Tulsa Oilers, proud ECHL affiliate of the NHL’s Anaheim Ducks and the AHL’s San Diego Gulls and powered by Community Care, lost 5-2 to the Utah Grizzlies at the Maverik Center on Saturday night.  

Adam Berg converted a backhander 30 seconds into the contest, putting the Grizzlies up 1-0 on the second shot of the game. Aaron Aragon extended Utah’s lead to 2-0 2:12 later for the final goal of the opening period, a rebound tap-in tally. 

Dante Sheriff cut the Grizzlies’ lead to 2-1 2:54 into the middle period on a highlight-reel tuck from the end line beyond Dante Giannuzzi. Kalvyn Watson leveled the game 2-2 2:03 into the second half of the contest, tipping home a point  shot from Jarod Hilderman. Cole Gallant broke the deadlock 1:27 later with a power-play one timer — the eventual game winner. Mick Messner put Utah up 4-2 less than two minutes later with a top-shelf snipe from the slot.

Nathan Burke closed the score 5-2 with the lone tally of the final frame, taking advantage of a turnover with 7:22 left.

The Oilers close out the 2023 calendar year with a third consecutive game against the Grizzlies at 4:10 p.m. CT at the Maverik Center tomorrow on New Year’s Eve.
