Super Heros expected at Allen Event Center Today
The Allen Americans, ECHL affiliate of the San Jose Sharks, beat the Tulsa Oilers in a high scoring 7-2 win on Saturday night at BOK Center, to even the weekend series at one win each. Today the series will be decided in Allen.
In an impressive offensive showing on Saturday night, the Americans jumped out early to a 4-0 lead in the first period. Olivier Archambault netted two goals in the first to bring his season total to 12. Joel Chouinard and Gary Steffes also lit the lamp as the Americans scored twice on the power play in the opening frame.
The scoring streak would continue into the second period with two early goals for Allen. Eric Roy netted his 10th of the season on the power play and Miles Liberati scored his 4th.
The two teams would split goals in the third period, bringing the total to 7-2. The Americans power play unit was also very effective on the night, scoring three goals on five power play opportunities.
Americans All-Star, David Makowski, tallied four assists on the night. Gary Steffes continued his hot streak since re-joining the Americans, with two goals on the night, bringing his total to three.
“We got off a to a fast start, said Americans forward Gary Steffes. “Archie, (Olivier Archambault) scored the first two goals of the game and got us going. We kept moving our feet moving and made the most of our chance. Williams (Stephon) made some big saves for us tonight and our power play was clicking.
