Oilers Sweep Brampton With 6-2 Victory

Posted: Updated:
BRAMPTON, Ontario -

In their one and only venture north of the border this season, the Tulsa Oilers completed a two-game sweep of the Brampton Beast with a 6-2 victory at the Powerade Centre on Tuesday night. The Oilers scored four goals in a stretch of six minutes in the second period to bury the Beast for a second straight night and earn a third consecutive road win. Tulsa improved to 6-0-0 this season against Brampton and moved within one point of third place in the Central Division standings.

The Oilers were able to convert on their first power play of the contest after Beast forward David Ling was whistled for elbowing at 14:18. Tulsa defenseman Scott Macaulay slid a pass to Drew Fisher who one-touched the puck to Adam Pleskach in front of the Brampton net. With a simple flick of the wrist, Pleskach chipped the puck past Beast goalie Trevor Cann for his 26th tally of the season. Less than three minutes later, the Oilers added to their advantage with their second power play strike of the period. Macaulay's backhand pass from the left face off circle set up a Tommy Mele one-timer from the right circle and the Oilers winger blasted a shot past Cann for a 2-0 lead at 17:27.

Tulsa opened up a three-goal lead at 2:40 of the second period as Matt Larke centered a backhand pass that was buried by Kyle Bochek from the top of the Brampton crease. Just 23 seconds later, with Tulsa captain Nathan Lutz in the box for delay of game, Beast forward Justin Donati zipped a puck past Kevin Carr to put the home team on the board. Donati's goal snapped a shutout streak of 116 minutes for Carr and the Oilers. At 6:15, Jon Booras tapped a puck past Cann to restore the Oilers' three-goal cushion and begin a stretch of three goals in two minutes for the visitors. Pleskach slammed home a rebound at 7:28 for a 5-1 Tulsa lead and 47 seconds later, Larke stuffed his own rebound past Cann for his 7th goal of the season. At 6-1, the rout was on and Cann's night was over. The former Oiler allowed six goals on 23 shots and dropped to 0-3-1 against Tulsa this season. Beast forward Bobby Hughes netted another power play tally at 10:21, marking the fifth time in seven games the Oilers surrendered multiple power play goals.

The Oilers cruised through a scoreless final period to record their largest margin of victory since a 6-0 drubbing of Rapid City on January 6. Pleskach, Mele, Larke, Bochek, Fisher, and Macaulay each recorded a pair of points while defensemen Jake Obermeyer and Kevin Noble finished the contest with +3 ratings. Carr, who made his fourth consecutive start, earned his 20th win of the season and has allowed only six goals in his last four appearances.

The Oilers continue their eight-game road trip on Saturday, February 21 with a visit to Wichita for a 7:05 p.m. start against the Thunder.
