STORYLINES

LAST TIME IN ALLEN: The Oilers and Americans last met on Monday, Jan. 15 during a day game at the Credit Union of Texas Event Center — a 5-3 Oilers victory. Despite eight total goals being scored, the first goal wasn’t tallied until the 16:16 mark of the second period when Jared Power netted his first as an Oiler in his debut for Maroon and Navy. Colby McAuley leveled the game 58 seconds later, but Kylor Wall put the Oilers up 2-1 before the expiration of the frame with a five-on-three strike. Jarod Hilderman scored his first of the season on a power-play goal of his own 3:08 into the final period. Dante Sheriff scored his first career game-winning goal on a highlight-reel tuck with less than five minutes remaining. 

SEASON SERIES STATS The Oilers have scored two power-play goals in five separate games this season, two of which coming against Allen, including the most-recent meeting. The Oilers have put up their highest shot total in a frame twice against the Americans this season, their most first period shots (20 on Nov. 2) and the most in a second period (21 on Nov. 3). The Oilers largest margin of victory also came against the Americans, a four-goal win on Nov. 3. Allen has had equal success in a few frames this campaign. The Americans most goals in a first period came on Nov. 2 in Tulsa, while the Americans have put up three goals in the final frame twice against the Oilers, coming on Nov. 24 and Jan. 3.  

MATSUSHIMA MAGIC: Eddie Matsushima’s 10 points (5G, 5A) leads the team against the Americans this season, producing at least one point in all five games against Allen. The third-year Oiler has also secured three points in an outing against the Americans twice, Nov. 2 and Nov. 25  

GERVAIS ON THE WAY: Rookie forward Kishaun Gervais returned from injury on Sunday, Feb. 4 for his first game since Dec. 23, recording one assist in the 6-4 loss. The Yorkton, Saskatchewan native has one goal in four outings against Allen this season. 

DUGGIE DOMINATION: Defenseman and Texas native Duggie Lagrone is coming off a career-best four-point (1G, 3A) game against the Grizzlies as he heads back to his home state. In six games this season against his former club, Lagrone has four points, all assists. The 5’10 blueliner also comes into tonight’s action on a two-game point streak.
