MOLINE, Ill. (January 31, 2014) – Vladimir Nikiforov scored the winning goal with 4:52 left in the third period as the host Quad City Mallards came from behind to defeat the Tulsa Oilers 2-1 Friday night. With the victory, the Mallards (19-9-8, 46 points) extended their regulation unbeaten streak to four games (3-0-1) while the Oilers (19-22-3, 41) suffered a third straight regulation defeat and saw their winless streak stretch to six games (0-5-1).
Nikiforov snapped a 1-1 tie with a wrist shot from the right wing circle after the Mallards’ Jeff Lee had evened the score with a wrister from the left wing circle at 2:37 of the third.
