WEST VALLEY CITY, UT — The Oilers picked up a crucial 3-1 win over the Utah Grizzlies at the Maverik Center on Friday night.
Tulsa drew first blood for the second-consecutive night when Matt Lane banked the puck off Adam Pleskach’s skate, bringing the Oilers a 1-0 lead. The goal was scored with an extra attacker, courtesy of a delayed penalty. Justin Taylor found the back of the net 25 seconds later, walking the edge of the crease and depositing his sixth goal of the season. Lane gave Tulsa a 3-0 lead with 10 seconds remaining in the period; pump faking Trevor Gorsuch on a breakaway and sliding the puck inside the left post for his eighth goal as an Oiler.
Both teams left the second period without scoring a goal. Devin Williams turned away eight shots while Gorsuch answered all five opportunities.
Mitch Maxwell scored the last goal of the game of the game with 14:59 remaining in the contest, banking a long-distance shot off the post, bringing the final score to 3-1.
