Mitch Maloney and Dalton Thrower had the assists. The Americans outshot Tulsa 13 to 4 in the first period.

Allen responded with two more in the second period. First, Jacob Doty followed up his own rebound in front of the Tulsa net, firing it past Oilers goalie Evan Fitzpatrick to make it 2-0 Americans. Riley Bourbonnais made it 3-0 just over a minute later taking a pass from Dante Salituro and blasting it into the Tulsa net for his 10th goal of the season.
