SHANE O'MAC - Shane Starrett stood on his head on Saturday night, stopping 52 shots against Tulsa. The Oilers pressured early, only to see the second-year netminder come up with some terrific saves. It was his first start in a Thunder uniform since last April when he backstopped the Thunder in the first round of the playoffs.
PC - Pierre-Cedric Labrie recorded his second goal of the season on Saturday, He stole the puck from an Oilers defenseman and beat Evan Fitzpatrick to help Wichita grab the lead. The marker was the team's first shorthanded goal scored this season.
