    The Missouri Mavericks shut out the Tulsa Oilers 5-0 Saturday night in front of the eighth consecutive sellout crowd of 5,800 fans at Independence Event Center. John-Scott Dickson tallied three points on the night with two goals and an assist. Sebastien Thinel earned two points with a pair of assists. Mavericks' goaltender Mathieu Corbeil stopped all 24 shots he faced for the shutout win. Missouri scored a pair of power play goals in the win and ended a three-game scoreless drought on the man advantage.

    The Mavericks took a 2-0 lead in the first period and controlled the play throughout the opening 20 minutes. Dickson scored the first of his two goals on the power play at the 11:58 mark. Missouri took a two-goal lead when Trevor Kell beat Oilers' netminder Shane Madolora with a wrist shot from the right circle. The Mavericks outshot the Oilers 15-4 in the period.

    Missouri extended the lead to 5-0 through two periods. Kenton Miller, fresh from being reassigned by the Chicago Wolves, scored the Mavericks second power play goal of the game at the 8:52 mark. Dickson made it 4-0 when he shelved a wrist shot at 14:46 for his 15th goal of the season. The period closed with a goal from Brandon Smith with assists from Dickson and Thinel.

    In the final period of the game the Oilers were unable to get any of their shots passed Corbeil, even with two power play opportunities.

    The Mavericks outshot the Oilers 46-to-24. The Mavericks converted on two of their three power play opportunities, while the Oilers went 0-for-2
