Ice Men Top Oilers At BOK Center

TULSA, OK - As he has been for Evansville all season long, Todd Robinson was once again the difference for Evansville in a 4-2 victory over the Oilers on Friday night in front of 4,333 at the BOK Center.

With the game still tied in the third, the Icemen were handed a powerplay when Jason Weeks was nabbed for tripping.{} Matt Gens sent a screaming slapshot off the end boards and Robinson one-timed the ricochet past Oilers netminder Steve Christie.{} Matt Pierce added an empty-net goal for Evansville to seal the deal and put an end to the Oilers two-game win streak.

Robinson, the CHL's leading scorer, finished the night with the game-winning goal and two assists.

The Oilers will take the weekend off and return to action Tuesday night for a home game against Fort Wayne at 7:05 p.m.{} Tulsa is 1-1-0 against the Komets this season.
