Josh Nelson collects first game-winning goal, Trevor Thurston and Anthony Firriolo score first as Oilers in 5-3 win

Stinil leveled the game 3-3 with his second of the period 25 seconds past the mid-way mark of the frame. Josh Nelson scored the game-winning goal, finishing a five-hole chance with 1:27 left in the game. Oklahoma native Matt Allen picked up his first pro point with an assist on the winning strike. Sheriff secured the victoru 5-3 with his second of the game — an empty netter — with 1:01 remaining.
