Tend The Farm ~ From the wind-swept plains of Oklahoma comes Tend The Farm, where the little seedlings called Barons one day hope to blossom into full time Oilers -- one season at a time. Oh, and, farming the Oilers ain't easy.

Let Us Visit The Symphony (And Hockey Third Periods)

Let Us Visit The Symphony (And Hockey Third Periods)

Third periods. You could call it the most important twenty minutes of a hockey game. The escalation of the game should build like a beautiful symphonic expression telling an elaborate story.

The string section slowly glides as the viola tickles your eardrum. The cellos play a melodious rhythm that resounds through your inner being. The light thud of the bass gives way to the sudden full-bodied sound of the bassoon.

Next comes the piercing sound of the flute and piccolo, and the sensation that something great is about to happen. As they twinkle, almost sparkle, behind the wood apparatus that accompany them, the movement pauses momentarily as if needing a breathe.

Game Two Rewind: Be Still, My Heart

Game Two Rewind: Be Still, My Heart

It’s too bad that Neal took the “How’d They Do That” caption in his rewind for Game One, because it completely fits my reaction for how Game Two happened. Game Two was split into two completely different games as the San Antonio Rampage controlled thirty-seven minutes, while the Oklahoma City Barons controlled the other twenty-seven. Even now, after getting to think about the game for this long, I still can’t get over how the outcome of the game came to be.

The first period completely belonged to the Rampage. The Barons defense was shaky, the offense couldn’t get anything going, and Laurent Brossoit had eighteen shots to deal with in the first twenty minutes. Goals from Connor Brickley and Corban Knight – on a power play – put San Antonio up 2-0 as the Barons headed to the locker room to sort things out.

Game One Rewind: How’d They Do That?

Game One Rewind: How’d They Do That?

One game does not a series make, but one game does tell us a whole lot of things worth discussing. The Oklahoma City Barons defeated the San Antonio Rampage by a score of five goals to two on Thursday night to snatch the first go-round in a best-of-five series. The familiarity these two teams have with each other dictated a sure battle. The outcome, however, was quite different than I expected.

How’d they do that?

Oklahoma City Defeats San Antonio In Game One

Oklahoma City Defeats San Antonio In Game One

The Oklahoma City Barons hosted the San Antonio Rampage in game one of the best of five series between the West Division rivals. The teams seem evenly matched, at this point in April, but one team would outlast the other in the final twenty minutes of game one.

The first period, with Dan Ellis in net for the Rampage, seemed to favor the Rampage early on as both Brad Hunt and Jason Williams would gift two power play chances for San Antonio. The Barons were able to deflect any trouble down a man, and Laurent Brossoit was dialed in like he has been over the last 20+ games of the regular season.
