INDEPENDENCE, MO - The Mavericks returned home on Tuesday for an early morning game against the Tulsa Oilers, a team that the Mavericks are 0-2-0-0 against this season. Kansas City would look to change that trend in front of thousands of screaming kids.

The Mavericks would open the third period with the tying goal courtesy of the captain Lane Scheidl at the 2:19 mark. However, after that puck reached the back of the net, it was all Oilers the rest of the way adding two lamp lighters, the first at 5:33 and the second on an eempty net at 18:20. The Mavericks are now 0-3-0-0 in three match ups with the Oilers this season.
