After dropping the first two games of the Western Conference Finals, the Tulsa Oilers (9-7-0) returned home and defeated the Toledo Walleye (10-3-1), 4-1 Wednesday at the BOK Center.

This was Tulsa’s seventh straight win while playing at home.

The Oilers scored their first power play goal of the series 1:11 into the third period. Dylan Sadowy scored at the 7:26 mark, closing the gap for the Walleye. Ryan Tesink put the game out of reach, as he scored with 2:17 remaining. Game 4 of the series is Friday at 7:05pm at the BOK Center, and Game 5 will be Saturday night in Tulsa at 7:05pm.
