WICHITA, Kan. (May 29) – Tulsa scored five unanswered goals and claimed a 5-2 win over Wichita on Saturday night at INTRUST Bank Arena.

At 7:49, Fournier redirected a Mathieu Gagnon shot from the blue line past Roman Durny to increase the lead to 2-0.

The Oilers started the rally at 10:54 when Charlie Sampair tipped a shot past Ian Scott on the power play to make it 2-1. 

In the second, Alex Kromm scored a pair of goals to give Tulsa its first lead of the night. His first came at 4:54 that tied the contest at two. His second came at 12:04 when a pass was intercepted behind the Thunder net and he fired a one-timer past Scott to make it 3-2. 

Tulsa added two more in the third as Matt Lane scored on the power play at 14:50 to make it 4-2. Kromm found an empty net and scored his third of the game to make it 5-2.
