Dallas/Allen, Texas – The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of NHL’s Ottawa Senators, lost the final game of a three-game series with the Tulsa Oilers by a score of 6-1 on Saturday night at CUTX Event Center.
The Oilers outscored the Americans 4-1 over the first two periods of play with Grant Hebert scoring the only Americans goal, his seventh of the year, a shorthanded goal at 13:23 of the second frame. Tulsa dominated the game putting up 52 shots and six goals ending the Americans two-game winning streak.
“Penalties hurt us tonight,” said Americans Head Coach and GM Chad Costello. "They capitalized on our mistakes, scoring four power play goals.”
The Oilers went 4-for-10 on the power play. The 10 power play attempts were a season-high given up by the Americans.
The Americans continue the homestand next Wednesday night when the Wichita Thunder travel to North Texas on Valentines Day.
