Below is an Excerpt from a Tulsa Oilers Game
Jeff: Back with you here in the first intermission. Jeff with Tulsa Oilers hockey as the Oilers lead it 1 to nothing after one period of play. Shantz on goal in the first period. Tulsa 13, Wichita 11 shots on goal through one period of play. That only goal came late in the period at 16:04 of the period on the goal by Dennis Brown. Brown’s second goal of the season. Assited by DeSalvo and Clark. Emerson Clark took the face off and came back to DeSalvo and Dan DeSalvo dropped it back to the top of the point. There was defenseman Dennis Brown waiting for it. He took a nice shot from the blue line up the slot into the goal. That was the only goal of the first period of play on the power play, nonetheless. Tulsa scoring with the man advantage at 16:04 of the first period. Tulsa right now 1 for 3 in power play chances, although their third power play will continue into the second period.
Tulsa has a power play opportunity with a penalty to Wichita’s Michael Neal. That will carry over into the second period for a another 52 seconds. Tulsa will have a man advantage. Oilers currently sitting with a one goal lead and currently sitting on a power play opportunity. That penalty that Michael Neal that came late in the period there, that was that interference on goalkeeper. Goalkeeper? That’s soccer. They literally had it written as goalkeeper down here. Goaltender in hockey. They had it written down as goalkeeper on the score sheet, though. Maybe some of the folks that work off ice here also work soccer matches. Goaltender interference there called against Michael Neal. That penalty carries over into the next period.
Brown with his second goal of the season puts Tulsa up 1 nothing here in the first period of play. Now, there are some other ECHL games going on around the league. We can give you an update on these.
