Posted January 7th, 2015 @ 1:36 am

Okotoks Oilers (24-11-4) @ Calgary Mustangs (11-28-3)

The Calgary Mustangs and Okotoks Oilers met for the fifth of six meeting on Tuesday night. The Oilers had won three of the first four games including a 3-0 shutout at the Father David Bauer Arena. Tuesday things would be different as Joshua McCulloch scored twice and added an assist to help the Mustangs defeat the Oilers 5-2.

The Mustangs would get the lone goal in the opening frame. Joshua McCulloch (assists to Joe Mahon and Ravi Dattani @1:23) jumped on the rebound beating Oilers (starting) goaltender Riley Morris. Shots favored the Oilers 8-7. Both teams went 0/1 on the power play.

The Mustangs would double their lead in the middle stanza. Frankie Spellman (assists to Stephen Doane and Eric Krienke @2:16) took a centering pass and wired a shot past Mustangs (starting) goaltender Ravi Dattani. Joshua McCulloch (assist to Joe Mahon @11:25) picked up the loose puck in the slot and beat Morris over the glove to make it 2-1. Vincent Paquette (unassisted @19:36) stole the puck at the blue line and on a breakaway would slide the puck into the net. Shots favored the Mustangs 14-9 in the period and 21-17 in the hockey game. The Mustangs power play went 0/2  in the second and 0/3 in the hockey game while the Oilers didn't get a power play in the second and were 0/1 in the hockey game.

The Mustangs would once again outscore the Oilers 2-1 in the period to earn a 5-2 victory. Stephen Doane (assists to Frankie Spellman and Eric Krienke @3:13) drove to the front of the net and shoveled a shot over the shoulder of Dattani. Joe Mahon (assist to Joshua McCulloch, and Jordan Xavier @11:45) found a little bit of room over the shoulder of Oilers (backup) goaltender Nic Renyard. Jared Virtanen (assists to Adam Berg and Vincent Paquette @18:32) shot the puck from center ice into the empty net to make it 5-2. Shots favored the Oilers 16-11 in the period and 33-32 overall. The Oilers went 0/2 on the power play in the third and 0/3 overall. The Mustangs power play went 0/1 in the third and finished the game 0/4 with the power play.

The boys in blue and gold return to action on Sunday (January 11th) when they host the Canmore Eagles, note the start time will be at 7:30pm.
