INDEPENDENCE, MO - Tulsa spoiled the weekend for the Mavericks, winning 5-1 at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena on Saturday.

The weekend trend of last-minute goals continued at Silverstein Eye Centers Arena when Derek Pratt scooped the puck up in the neutral zone, leading to a breakaway on which the defenseman scored his first goal of the season, a short-side top shelf snipe over Devin Williams with just 12 seconds left in the opening period.

Tulsa tied up the affair when Miles Liberati ripped a power-play blast from the blue line through the five hole of Tyler Parsons. The goal gives the Oilers power-play goals in back-to-back games. Roughly 10 minutes later, Jack Nevins looked Parsons off on the two-on-one before blasting a slap shot off the far post and into the back of the net, giving the Oilers their first lead of the week. Charlie Sampair added to the Tulsa lead 2:03 later when he flew around the entire zone and deposited the puck over a sprawled Parsons on the wraparound. Jared Thomas stepped up with his first goal since being activated from injured reserve, powering toward the net, faking a shot and opening up Parons for the Oilers' third goal in a 3:22 span, leading to a goalie change for the Mavericks.

Danny Moynihan made it five unanswered goals, receiving and depositing a cross-zone pass from Thomas past Nick Schneider 17:08 into the final period. The goal gives Moynihan a team-leading 15 goals on the season.

Tulsa now heads to Indianapolis to face off against the Fuel on Feb. 7 before traveling to Memorial Coliseum to battle the Fort Wayne Komets.
