The Tulsa Oilers of the Central Hockey League, a league two rungs below the top-tier National Hockey League, began their season Saturday night against the Allen Americans. 7,667 Tulsans were at the BOK Center for opening night to witness a disappointing 3–2 loss to the defending CHL champion Allen Americans. The Oilers were unable to rebound Sunday afternoon when they played the Americans again in an afternoon game at the BOK Center. The Oilers lost by the same score as the previous night, 3–2.
