Oilers shut out Thunder for Wichita’s 13th straight loss

The Tulsa Oilers beat the Thunder 5-0 on Sunday in Tulsa, dealing Wichita its 13 consecutive loss.

Tulsa’s Kale Kessy scored a goal in each period – the third while the Oilers were shorthanded.

Matt O’Connor started his second consecutive game in goal for the Thunder. He was assigned to Wichita on Saturday by the Binghamton Senators of the American Hockey League. He held division-leading Toledo to three goals in Saturday night’s 3-2 loss at Intrust Bank Arena. He allowed four goals in less than 32 minutes Sunday before being replaced by Scott Greenham.

Sunday’s game was the first of five on the road in the next week. The Thunder plays at Cincinnati of Wednesday and Friday.
