OILERS FINISH SEASON-LONG ROAD TRIP WITH SWEEP OF TOLEDO AND CINCINNATI

Tulsa to hold annual Unifirst Blanket Drive in return home Friday vs. Colorado, and Teddy Bear Toss Saturday vs. Allen at BOK Center.

OVERALL RECORD: 9-8-6

LAST WEEK: 2-0-0 .

RESULTS

Friday, Dec. 8 - Tulsa 5, Toledo 2 (Huntington Center - Toledo, OH)

The Tulsa Oilers dominated the top team in the Central Division Friday, handing the Toledo Walleye just their second home defeat of the season. Joey Sides (1g, 1a) and Alexandre Ranger (1g, 2a) scored first period goals for Tulsa, before Mike McKee and Garrett Ladd extended the lead to 4-0 by the end of the second frame. McKee's marker was his first as a pro, and Ladd's was his first of the season in his first game since returning from Europe. Davis Vandane scored twice in the third period for Toledo, but Charlie Sampair provided the final dagger, a third period breakaway tally. Oilers goaltender Devin Williams stopped 27 of 29 shots for his fifth win of the season.

Saturday, Dec. 9 - Tulsa 3, Cincinnati 1 (U.S. Bank Arena - Cincinnati, OH)

After a slow start Saturday, where the Cyclones lit the lamp early in the first period, the Oilers battled back to earn the first-ever win over Cincinnati 3-1. Veteran forward Vladimir Nikiforov scored consecutive goals in the first five minutes of the second period to vault Tulsa into the lead, and Steven Kaunisto added an insurance goal late in regulation. Reigning ECHL Goaltender of the Month Jake Hildebrand made 24 saves, including a flashing of the leather that robbed a prime Cyclones scoring chance in a 2-1 game during the third period.
