The Edmonton Oilers American Hockey League affiliate, the Oklahoma City Barons, earned a huge 5-4 shootout win over the Hamilton Bulldogs on Wednesday night.
The victory gives them 73 points on the season, putting them two back of the 7th (Rockford) and 8th seed in the Western Conference (Charlotte).
The Barons continue their playoff push with two critical games against the Charlotte Checkers on Saturday and Sunday at home in OKC.
The win was also marked by pro debuts for two Oilers prospects; Jujhar Khaira and Greg Chase. Khaira, a third round pick (63rd overall) by the Oilers in 2012, finished the game -2 with two shots on goal.
Chase scored his first professional goal, the game-tying tally at 15:35 of the third period. Chase was selected 188th overall (7th round) of the 2013 NHL Entry Draft. He finished the game +2 with three shots on goal.
The Barons have seven games left in the regular season.
