The Tales Of Charlotte Scoring Early, Barons Split Weekend Games

The Tales Of Charlotte Scoring Early, Barons Split Weekend Games

578A8894

The Oklahoma City Barons played a two-set this week against the Charlotte Checkers in North Carolina prior to the All-Star break. With three (four if you count Lander) Barons on the All-Star roster for the Western Conference, they’d make the trip owning one of the best records in the league. At the other end of the spectrum is the Charlotte Checkers, who’ve had an up and down and up again season through 40+ games.

It would be a lesson in frustration in game one as the Charlotte Checkers would score the games first goal, and the Barons would scratch and claw their way back to victory. In game two, Charlotte would again score early, but OKC couldn’t muster the offensive strength to overcome a two-goal deficit.

Three Games In Three Days, Barons Lose Twice

Three Games In Three Days, Barons Lose Twice

Coming off a hot December and an equally as hot early January, the Oklahoma City Barons were forced to battle through a home three-in-three against the familiar Texas Stars and the unfamiliar Rochester Americans. Despite losses being few and far between these days, the Barons would lose twice in the span of 72 hours.

The first two games, against the Texas Stars, come with the knowledge that scouts and media from Edmonton are littered throughout the Cox Center. The Barons would arm themselves with Laurent Brossoit in game one, and Richard Bachman in game two – both netminders being sturdy to start the new year.

Barons Lose 5-2 To Texas, Streak Ends

Barons Lose 5-2 To Texas, Streak Ends

The Oklahoma City Barons, clinging to a seven game win streak, returned home to face the sleeping giant called the Texas Stars. The eight game win streak that began around Thanksgiving and extended into the first week of December was a franchise record. It also saw the Barons take four straight in OT sandwiched by two regulation wins prior and three later. They were a team simply getting the job done. The current streak was eerily similar. Three OT victories in that seven game stretch. Again, this team knows how to finish. And on Tuesday night in Bricktown the team would do a complete 180, and look like mere mortals against their rival to the South, the Stars.

Barons Win Back-To-Back In OT, Welcome To The Show

Barons Win Back-To-Back In OT, Welcome To The Show

The Oklahoma City Barons played back-to-back games this weekend. The games were separated by only 22 hours and over 450 miles. The trip to San Antonio for a post-Christmas tilt with the Rampage was seen through the filter of the impending trip back north to face the Charlotte Checkers on home ice the following day. But like the best teams do, the Barons were prepared for both games, and while they played “extra hockey” both nights, each win was exceptional. Welcome to the (young gun) show.

Winless Nelson, Two Rockford Wins, Lander Returned

Winless Nelson, Two Rockford Wins, Lander Returned

It was a busy weekend full of Oklahoma City Barons news, and as we slide in to Christmas it is certainly a welcome sight. From Todd Nelson going winless (but still earning points) to the Rockford games where the Barons would defeat a pretty solid IceHogs team to the return of captain Anton Lander – things are happening.

Let’s start with the Rockford games.

Barons Lose To Charlotte, Remain First In West Division

Barons Lose To Charlotte, Remain First In West Division

After a completely lifeless game by the Charlotte Checkers on Tuesday, the script was flipped on Thursday as the Oklahoma City Barons looked snoozy for much of the game resulting in a 4-2 loss in North Carolina.

Laurent Brossoit would let in the games first two goals, and both came in just nine minutes of the opening frame. Jared Staal and Chad LaRose both scored even strength goals against a fumbly OKC defense that does have a tendency to wane in games played close together.
