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.

Barons Beat Charlotte 4-1, Richard Bachman Injured & Tyler Bunz Recalled

Barons Beat Charlotte 4-1, Richard Bachman Injured & Tyler Bunz Recalled

The Oklahoma City Barons played the Charlotte Checkers on Tuesday evening, and they would soundly defeat them 4-1. The Checkers played a seemingly lifeless game despite the high shot totals and lone goal. They are a team on the brink of crashing and burning or potentially getting better, and on a Tuesday night in North Carolina the Barons found them on the wrong side of that tipping scale.

Richard Bachman would start against Drew MacIntyre at the other end. For “The Biz” the game was near perfection. For MacIntyre it was a struggle early, and that put Charlotte in a hole to begin the matchup. Five shots faced, two goals allowed, and Drew MacIntyre would have to be really solid down the stretch to get his team back into the game.

A second period goal by Brendan Woods pulled them ever so closely to the Barons lead, but Kellen Jones would whistle in a shot (his first of the season in the AHL) to put the OKC lead back to two goals. An empty netter by Jason Williams would be his tenth goal of the season, and it would extend the lead with time winding down.

Oklahoma City Loses To San Antonio Again (And With Children Present)

Oklahoma City Loses To San Antonio Again (And With Children Present)

After a two-goal loss on Sunday to the San Antonio Rampage, the Oklahoma City Barons hosted a them in return for a 10:35am puck drop on Tuesday morning. As I mentioned in the pregame comments, this is a game each year that sort of separates the men from the boys in terms of preparedness. Veterans seemingly don’t struggle, but youthful prospects do, and perhaps it nudges the latter group to re-configure their night-before rituals. Regardless, it is always a feisty game, in front of the children no less.

Yakimov & Davidson Return, Barons Go .500

Yakimov & Davidson Return, Barons Go .500

With a bit of momentum, some good luck, and some really good play with an extra skater, the Oklahoma City Barons boldly marched into the second weekend of November with a pair of games. The first against the unfamiliar Toronto Marlies, whom only play the Barons twice this season, and the second against the all-too-familiar San Antonio Rampage. The ironic twist is that the gameplan against the unfamiliar foe was perfect, one of the most complete games of the season, while the familiar adversary got the hangover treatment. Thus the weekend would end with a two game split.

Oklahoma City Victorious Again! Defeat Iowa 4-2

Oklahoma City Victorious Again! Defeat Iowa 4-2

The Oklahoma City Barons defeated the Iowa Wild on Saturday evening, and that was a good thing. Although the loss was handed to the Wild, and the Barons were given the two points, it was nearly undone by a sideways third period where Iowa manhandled players left and right. This led to some scary moments, and nearly a loss for OKC, but they survived. This had me worried as the two teams squared off less than 24 hours later in the same rink.

Would Oklahoma City be able to play a full three periods? I hope so.

Texas Defeats OKC In Overtime, Goaltending Still Good

Texas Defeats OKC In Overtime, Goaltending Still Good

Two games, two consecutive overtime outcomes. The Stars and Barons historically play games at an excellent clip, and lately they have proven that point beautifully. On a rare Wednesday night game in Cedar Park, the Stars would take advantage of late period penalties committed by the Barons en route to a 5-4 victory against our squad from OKC.

Ten first period shots netted two goals for Oklahoma City, and an early lead in the game. Iiro Pakarinen would both add an assist and a goal in those opening scoring events, and it seemed that the Barons were going to roll up half a dozen on the stingy Stars. But Brett Ritchie and Maxime Fortunas each scored their first of the season across ten minutes of play and two periods.
