OILERS TOP THUNDER IN OVERTIME THRILLER
A two-goal night from Matt Lane brings the Oilers back to .500
WICHITA, KS — The Oilers topped Wichita 4-3 in overtime at INTRUST Bank Arena on Friday night.
Matt Lane opened the scoring for the second-straight game, firing the puck from the slot and past Evan Weninger with 2:44 left in the first period. Jay Dickman tied things 1-1 2:01 later, scoring a similar goal down the other end for his ninth of the season.
Stefan Fournier turned the scoreboard 2-1 in Wichita’s favor, chipping in a power-play goal just under five minutes into the middle period. Charlie Sampair answered at the 9:14 mark, wheeling from the corner before beating Weninger down low with a snapshot.
John Albert tallied a go-ahead goal with 5:56 left, pouncing on a turnover in the slot and beating Roman Durny with a quick release. Tyler Kobryn then stuffed home the game-tying goal with 4:01 remaining in regulation.
Neither team could find the edge in regulation for the third time this season. Lane bookended his opening goal with the game-winning goal, lifting the puck over a downed Weninger 1:13 into the extra period. The goal was Lane’s fourth of the season, with all four goals coming against the Thunder.
