Oilers Look To Send Series Back To Tulsa

Posted: Updated:

The Tulsa Oilers continue their playoff series tonight in Mississippi, hoping to send the series back to Tulsa for a decisive game five.

The Oilers dropped both home games to fall into an 0-2 hole in the series, but rallied with three straight goals in Sunday's game in Mississippi to stave off elimination.

Mississippi led 3-1 after Patrick Levesque's shorthanded goal late in the second period. But, Luke Lucyk scored a powerplay goal 80 seconds later to cut the lead to 3-2, the Braden Wells knotted the score eight minutes into the third period.

Derek Eastman scored unassisted with less than seven minutes remaining to put the Oilers ahead.

Tulsa won the game despite being outshot in every period. Trevor Cann stopped 36 shots to help the Oilers stay alive.

Tonight's game is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. at the DeSoto Civic Center in Southaven, Mississippi.

A win would shift the series back to Tulsa for a deciding game five which would be played Saturday at the BOK Center in Tulsa. Should Mississippi win, they would play the winner of the series between the Texas Brahmas and Odessa Jackalopes.

That series is currently tied 1-1.
