PHN’s Best Shots of the Game: Fort Worth Brahmas vs. Tulsa Oilers 12/1/12

FORT WORTH, Texas – The Fort Worth Brahmas won their third consecutive game Saturday night as they defeated the Tulsa Oilers 5-1 at the Fort Worth Convention Center.   Tulsa took the early 1-0 lead as David Beauregard scored just 1:17 into the first period. But that would be the only goal Brahmas net minder Kristofer Westblom would allow.   Fort Worth came back and took a 2-1 lead heading into the second period as Tomas Klempa and Sy Nutkevitch both beat Tulsa goaltender Ian Keserich in the opening frame. For Nutkevitch, it was his first game-winning goal of the season.   The Brahmas added three more scores the rest of the way. Erik Spady and Phil Fox notched second-period goals, and Adam Hogg sealed the deal with a third-period score. For Fox, it was his team-leading ninth goal of the season.   Westblom (4-1-0) made 17 saves on 18 Tulsa shots to earn his fourth victory in only five starts. The 6-foot-2, 165-pound goalie has a 1.22 goals against average and a .944 save percentage this season.   Keserich allowed five goals on 30 shots in net for the Oilers, earning his seventh regulation loss of the season.
