Rush break back into win column versus Tulsa

By  | 

Things seemed to be headed in the right direction for the Rapid City Rush. After a slow start to the season, the Rush ran off four wins in a row, but the other show dropped and Idaho hung three straight losses on the hometown club.
Wednesday, the Rush would try to regroup, taking on the Tulsa Oilers for the first of a three-game set.

Rush on the move, Alex Guptill wit the tap back to Alex Kromm who fires, but Devin Williams will make the save.
Rush continue to press, Peter Sivak to Dante Salituro on the breakout, late, but beautiful feed to Pavel Jenys for the terrific tap-in goal and the Rush is on the board.
Tulsa will counter just a few minutes later, Connor Bleakley with the dish to Kale Kessy on the doorstep and he'll jam it home to tie the game at one goal apiece.
The Rush will counter, centering pass to Alex Guptill, but Williams is strong in the net once more.
But Rapid City was just relentless in the first, this was a gorgeous play, Gustav Bouramman to Guptill, the exceptional feed to Alex Kromm for the second Rush goal of the game.

And the Rush is back in the win column with a convincing 5-to-2 win.
