Linus Omark‘s second career four-goal game sparked the Oklahoma City Barons to a 5-4 win over the San Antonio Rampage at the AT&T Center on Friday night.
Omark scored twice in the first period, once in the second and once more in the third as the Barons (4-4-0-1) built a 5-2 lead before holding on.
Omark’s first goal came 3:53 into the game as he fired home a pass from Anton Lander, tying the score at 1-1.
A power-play goal by Omark at 16:15 gave the Barons the lead and ended San Antonio’s streak of 15 consecutive successful penalty kills on home ice to start the season.
With 2:42 left in the second period and Oklahoma City up 3-2, Omark was awarded a penalty shot and beat Dov Grumet-Morris to complete the hat trick.
Omark finished short of his career high of five goals in one game, achieved vs. Toronto on Nov. 7, 2010. He also converted on a shootout attempt in that contest.
