The Barons Clinch, Reinforcements Arrive, Playoffs Ahoy

The Barons Clinch, Reinforcements Arrive, Playoffs Ahoy

“It’s Monday!” I shouted as I pulled out of my driveway this morning, an Oklahoma thunderstorm very present in my review mirror. As soggy Monday’s go, this one isn’t all that bad. Sure I’m up super early, I did not have time to brew a good cup of coffee, and the half-eaten breakfast I attempted to eat has somehow turned my stomach sideways, but things are on the up.

Barons Lose To Marlies, Lose Fifth Straight

Barons Lose To Marlies, Lose Fifth Straight

The Oklahoma City Barons, and their wispy lineup, came to Toronto for a day-game somewhat ready to battle the Marlies. Historically speaking, Ricoh Coliseum is brutal for OKC, and the day would start rather comely, but end in an eerily familiar demise.

The Barons would lose their fifth straight, giving away two straight goals in the third, to be overtaken by the Toronto Marlies 3-2.

Barons Lose Thrice, Injuries To Blame

Barons Lose Thrice, Injuries To Blame

It’s Monday. That phrase, in and of itself, will bring you to your knees. The bellows of the weekend seem like a faint whisper in the distance, and you can tell by the size of my Starbucks flat white this morning that the start of the work week is throttling my every sense.

I’ve queued up my favorite tracks by Tralmpled by Turtles, I’ve blown my nose twice (thanks elm trees, you scabs), and I’ve begun to reminisce about the weekend that was Barons hockey at the incomparable Cox Center.

The back-end of a seven game homestand is supposed to be fun, fan-fueled, and foxy. Instead it was feeble, fragile, and just plain frowzy. Three games in three days is tough, but is usually manageable at home (your own bed, your own shower, your own food, your own XBOX). Yet the Oklahoma City Barons have been bit by the injury bug, nay they’ve been doctored on using those grabby tweezers in the game ‘Operation’. Yet Jujhar Khaira has actually injured his real elbow, and not his “funny bone”, and poor Akim Alium only wishes he had butterflies in his stomach and not a concussion-like situation.

Oklahoma City Again Defeats Milwaukee 5-1

Oklahoma City Again Defeats Milwaukee 5-1

It’s good to be an OKC team these days playing a team from Milwaukee. So good, in fact, that the teams have faced each other three times, and thrice the Barons have scored five goals. That’s fifteen goals scored against the Milwaukee Admirals in nine periods. I’ll take that. On the flip side, the Barons have only allowed them to score five goals against in that same span. Again, guys, it’s good to be an OKC team these days playing a team from Milwaukee.

After defeating the Ads 5-1 on away ice, the Barons would again defeat the same squad days later on home ice, and again by five goals to one.

Barons Beat Ads 5-1, End Goal Hemorrhaging

Barons Beat Ads 5-1, End Goal Hemorrhaging

Here we are. After allowing twelve goals in six periods, the Barons would touch down in Milwaukee in hopes of finally playing a good game, hence a respectable game. I keep saying this, but Laurent Brossoit needs a fixer upper type of game to prevent his downward spiral from continuing. As we have seen, young-ish goaltenders do this from time to time, heck all goaltenders do this from time to time. Yet the losses, in horrible fashion, can be debilitating.

With the weekend winding down, the Oklahoma City Barons would finally play a good game. They would hand the Milwaukee Admirals a strong 5-1 defeat, and allow the team to turn the corner on some recent rough patches.

Oklahoma City Barons Lose Big Again, 5-1 To Rockford

Oklahoma City Barons Lose Big Again, 5-1 To Rockford

Following a 7-1 clobbering at the hands of the skills-heavy Grand Rapids Griffins, the Oklahoma City Barons looked to revive the weekend with a trip to Rockford to face the frozen pigs. The good news is that they didn’t give up seven straight goals. The bad news is that they still lost 5-1.
