Tulsa has not visited Independence since December 19 - a game that the Oilers won 3-2 behind a pair of Emerson Clark goals. The Mavericks have won three straight against Tulsa by a combined 11-4 score, but have not downed the Oilers on home ice since their 10-3 blowout win on November 5. Tulsa's other victory here was a 3-2 shootout win on Dec. 10. The Oilers and Mavericks are both in the final game of their respective weekend three-in-threes.


Kevin Tansey is riding a five-game point streak (5g, 2a) and has two multi-point games in that span. His first pro two-goal game on Feb. 24 broke a nine-game point drought - his longest of the season.
