QUICK HITS: Tulsa in town for three

Oil and Water: The Steelheads will meet the Tulsa Oilers for the first time this season when the teams meet at CenturyLink Arena on Wednesday night to open a three-game series. The Steelheads salvaged the final game of their series with the Allen Americans on Saturday night, skating to a 5-1 win. The Oilers come to town with only two wins in their last ten games, sitting five points back of the Steelheads in the Mountain Division standings. The Steelheads are 5-2-0 all-time against the Oilers.

Par for the Course: Justin Parizek missed Saturday’s game serving a one-game suspension, but he’ll be back in the lineup Wednesday looking to extend an eight-game points streak. Parizek has six goals and nine points over the last eight games, including a three-game goal-scoring streak that has moved him into a tie with Wheeling’s Reid Gardner for first in the ECHL in rookie goal-scoring. Parizek also ranks second among ECHL rookies with 19 points.

Rough Stuff: Saturday night’s contest against the Americans, which featured a full line brawl in the third period, was the most penalty-filled game for Idaho this season. The two teams combined for 148 penalty minutes, a season-high 53 of them assessed to the Steelheads. Idaho took advantage of the parade to the penalty box, scoring four power play goals to match a season high. The Steelheads are clicking at a 22.8 percent rate on the power play over the last 13 games, improving them to fifth overall in the ECHL on the man-advantage with a 20.2 success rate for the season.

Hank You Very Much: Henrik Samuelsson was a driving force behind that power play success on Saturday with three power play points, netting both his goals with the man-advantage and setting up Aaron Harstad’s power play tally as well. Samuelsson leads the team with five power play goals and has earned seven of his 13 points this season on the power play.

Family First: With parents and extended family in attendance, Alexander Dahl scored his first professional goal on Saturday. Dahl went to the net to finish the rebound of an AJ White shot, capping the scoring in a 5-1 Steelheads win. Dahl has a goal and three points in six games this season.
