Tulsa responded, but Zack Andrusiak scored his first of two goals on the night, with a wicked wrister from the far boards as time ticked down in the 1st period.
* Tulsa’s Dante Sheriff and Kalvyn Watson each scored early in the second to build a 3-2 Tulsa lead. Zack Andrusiak finished off a tap pass from defenseman Billy Constantinou to tie the game back up. Cincy converted once again on the powerplay to take the lead with Jake Gaudet’s deflection goal, his first a Cyclone.
* Up 4-3 entering the 3rd, Justin Vaive collected Cincinnati’s third PPG of the evening with a wristshot streaking down the left wing. Patrick Polino and Luka Burzan added extra insurance goals for the Cyclones in the late stages of the game. Goaltender Olof Lindbom made 26 saves earning his first win with the ‘Clones.
* Next up, the Cyclones stay in Tulsa for a Sunday 5:05pm ET puck drop against the Oilers.
