TULSA, OK — The Oilers closed out the week with a 5-3 win against the Allen Americans at the BOK Center on Sunday.

Tulsa went into the first intermission with a two-goal lead courtesy of Justin Taylor’s highlight-reel goal, outwaiting Kaplemaster and sliding the puck into the bottom of the net.
Allen pulled the game to 3-2 5:20 into the second period when Zane Franklin finished a back-door feed from Corey Mackin on the power play. Justin Lammon tied the game 3-3, stealing the puck before beating Devin Williams on a breakaway 39 seconds into the back half of the game. The Oilers took a lead they would not relinquish with 4:56 left in the period. Pleskach steered behind the Allen net, finding Gregg Burmaster who sniped home a one-time finish.
Vincent Marleau iced the game with an empty-net goal with 1:40 remaining, closing the game at 5-3.
