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. - page 2

Oklahoma City Barons Vs. Texas Stars: Playoff Preview

Oklahoma City Barons Vs. Texas Stars: Playoff Preview

At the ripe age of 15, I boarded a pale white bus in South West Texas, to traverse the pristine, unfettered waters of the river simply known by locals as “The Devils”. The bus ride itself was an adventure. You felt the weight of each bump as we careened side to side to avoid each ditch-like hole in the ground. The driver, a man in his 50′s, sang classic country tunes to himself, but was willing to share with the rest of the touristico on the 30 passenger, dilapidated school bus.

The ride eventually came to a halt as we reached a portion of Devils River. The river itself, only 90 miles long, has often been considered one of the mightiest in Texas for its rugged, unforgiving tendencies. Indeed, as a 15 year old high school student the thought of taking a canoe trip down its relentless being had me exhilarated. The goal was simple. Grab a thin boat, two oars, a lunch pail and canister of water, and begin the adventure of a lifetime.

Darnell Nurse, Two Gifs Worth Celebrating

Darnell Nurse, Two Gifs Worth Celebrating

Darnell Nurse, a high-end prospect with the Edmonton Oilers (whatever that means), has sorta made his prescence known with the Oklahoma City Barons. Sometimes it’s good, often times it’s bad. Any way you slice it, however, he’s an interesting fella. Nurse, just recently turning 19 years old, is a large, wiry fella with incredible speed, good hands, and DIY decision making. Before I go any further hear me out. Nurse IS NOT NHL READY, but rather displays a unique skill set that sets him apart from the herd. Are they fully developed? No. Is he ready for the NHL in a season or two? Probably not. Is he a first round bust? Too early to tell.

Texas Stars vs. Oklahoma City Barons First Round Schedule

Texas Stars vs. Oklahoma City Barons First Round Schedule

The Oklahoma City Barons survived last night’s game with the Iowa Wild while the Checkers lost to the Admirals, 5-1. Thus the Barons have secured a date with the top notch Texas Stars in the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs. You’ll recall, the first round of the Calder race is a short best of five with the first two games being played on the home ice of the lower seed. That always causes heartburn.

Via the AHL PR twitter account, here is the first round schedule:

Oklahoma City Sleepwalks Through First Period, Lose To Texas 2-1

Oklahoma City Sleepwalks Through First Period, Lose To Texas 2-1

The Oklahoma City Barons needed standing points, and they needed them desperately. Seemingly unfazed by the moment, Todd Nelson rolled with a bunch of youngsters on forward lines, and continued to triumph the defensive skills of Darnell Nurse. It began as most Texas vs. OKC games begin, and that was with a “feeling out period”. Yet in this circumstance, on this night, the Stars felt nothing but stone cold intensity. Meanwhile the Barons were withering away in the possession department. The final 2-1 victory by Texas makes me frightful.
