Below is an Excerpt of a Tulsa Oilers Game
Let’s see what happens though, we still have 11:20 to go. We got a penalty now. Following the face-off, the referee calling a slashing penalty against the Americans. No, correction. It’s going to be against the Oilers. Pardon me, I apologize. It’s going to be Brandon Wong going to the penalty box, and the penalty coming at 8:35 of the period. Slashing on Brandon Wong. This will be the 4th power play opportunity for the Americans, as Brandon Wong goes to the penalty box for slashing.
The Oilers will be on a Rusty Roberts Bail Bonds penalty kill. Remember, Rusty Roberts Bail Bonds, call 918-592-BAIL, 592-BAIL is the number to remember if you ever need Rusty Roberts Bail Bonds. I know I got that number saved in my cell … No, I don’t. Probably should though. Should probably have that number saved in my cell phone.
All right, we have an official timeout here. Just enough time for me to turn my microphone off, so I can cough a couple of times and not cough in your ear this time.
All right, face-off to the left of goaltender Carr in the Tulsa end, and Wong in the penalty box, Americans with the power play. Here come the Oilers. Here comes DeSalvo, shorthanded, one-on-one with the goalie, and it’s saved by the goaltender, Gill. Oh my. DeSalvo intercepted the puck, and he had a nice little breakaway, all by himself, but was not able to beat the goaltender on the play. [inaudible 01:50:11] great [inaudible 01:50:14] DeSalvo, and he almost made it count.
Now the puck back into the Tulsa end. Around to the point, at the top is King. There is 1:18 remaining in the penalty to Wong. Along the boards on the near side, out to the blue line. Kept in there for Parker, to King, and it’s intercepted by the Oilers again. On a breakaway, here comes DeSalvo on a nice pass. DeSalvo in on the goaltender, it would’ve been a shootout, and Gill comes out to make the save again on DeSalvo. Wow. Two breakaway opportunities there back-to-back for DeSalvo, but he’s unable to get it passed the goaltender, Riley Gill, who did a great job getting out there with his stick and poking it away the second time. First time he blocked it.
Here’s a shot in front, and now Carr will smother it. We’ll get a face-off coming in the Tulsa end. If it gets any more exciting, I’m going to … I’ll lose my voice.
10:02 remaining in this 3rd period, and the Oilers with a 2-0 lead. Face-off will be to the right of Carr in the Tulsa end. Lalancette on the draw against Schultz. Lalancette, and now it’s knocked out of the zone, into the neutral ice following the face-off. The Americans will reset in their own end at their own blue line. Send it around on the left side.
They bring it back over the blue line into the Tulsa zone. Down low, now off the boards on the near side there for Costello. Centering pass went through the slot, back to Costello in the left circle. Costello tried to center it out to the top of the slot, but he had it knocked away momentarily. Saved in there by Gens, now it’s cleared away by the Oilers’ Sova, and it’s sent down the length of the ice.
That’s the end of the penalty to Wong. Oilers are back to full strength, they’ve killed that one off. Good job by the Oilers to kill off these penalties tonight, as now the Americans are 0-for-4 on the power play. Great job on the penalty kill tonight by the Oilers, as it could’ve been a different story. Tulsa has scored one in six power play chances tonight.
