Texas at Oklahoma City Game Two (GR)(M)umblings

Texas at Oklahoma City Game Two (GR)(M)umblings

The Oklahoma wind has done a number on my nasal passages so gird your loins for some epic grumble / mumbles on all things Tejas vs. Land Runners. But as I take my 24-hour Claritin about three hours to late, I’m suddenly calmed, my heart rate dipping towards normalcy, I’m reminded that things really aren’t all that bad. The Barons are on the ropes, down two games to nil in a best-of-five series, but they’ve taken the best team in the AHL (according to the standings) twice to OT. That’s good news. Great news even. Yet, I’m still not entirely hopeful. C’mon allergy medicine, make me feel better.

Texas At Oklahoma City Game One (Gr)(M)umblings

Texas At Oklahoma City Game One (Gr)(M)umblings

Man, that was a close one. The Barons owned a two spot lead thanks to goals by Austin Fyten and Curtis Hamilton, and it seemed that they would again solve a problem like Cristopher Nilstorp. Then the tides shifted, Mike Hedden scored a pair including the overtime game winner, and the Barons lose game one at home in a quickened best-of-five first round.

My excitement quickly turned to fear as those three straight goals came pouring from the Texas-sized juggernaut that is offensive glory. A 2-0 lead felt nice, but once the game inched to a 2-1 lead it seemed impossible to see a scenario where the Oklahoma City Barons could protect a one goal lead with a lot of time on the clock. Of course they wouldn’t be able to, the defense faltered, and the offense seemed gobsmacked by the whole endeavor. The raucous start for Oklahoma City would, in the end, come petering to a halt. A 3-2 loss was afoot.

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.

Oklahoma City Beats Charlotte Twice, Four Points Is Nice

Oklahoma City Beats Charlotte Twice, Four Points Is Nice

As the voice of the Oklahoma City Barons, Jim Byers, is want to say, “It sure is nice playing meaningful hockey in the month of April.”

Indeed it is. After barely scraping by the Hamilton Bulldogs on Wednesday night, the newly redesigned Oklahoma City Barons hosted the Charlotte Checkers in a Saturday and Sunday two-for. The games were hugely important for both squads, whom are battling for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference as we dangerously approach two more weeks remaining in the AHL season.

Khaira & Chase Impress, Barons FINALLY Win In A Shootout

Khaira & Chase Impress, Barons FINALLY Win In A Shootout

While the Edmonton Oilers tumbled down the staircase in the third period of last night’s game, the Oklahoma City Barons climbed the ladder back to the good graces of playoff contention. After three straight shootout appearances, the Oklahoma City Barons would again take a team deep into OT and the shootout. The skills competition has been relentless and unforgiving for the Barons who seemingly lack the creative arc to “get it done.” That was nearly the case on Wednesday night, but the home team would emerge with two points, and a much needed bump in the standings.

Before we get to the Jujhar & Greggy things of the evening, let us briefly pause to talk nuts and bolts. The lineup was bound to be shaken up just a bit with the continued absence of Arcobello and Horak. Add to that list Kessy and Hamilton whom are both injured, as well as Acton and Pinizzotto who’ve landed with the big squad in the NHL. Earlier in the day we knew that Jujhar Khaira and Greg Chase would make their debut within the organization that drafted them, and that was big news. We later learned that the other newcomers, Holmberg and Winquist, would sit at least this game. The same goes for defensive signees Oesterle and Craig.

Oklahoma City Again Loses In The Shootout, Gives Another Two Points To Charlote

Oklahoma City Again Loses In The Shootout, Gives Another Two Points To Charlote

Grumble, grumble, grumble. The Oklahoma City Barons, desperately needing a victory in regulation, pushed their chances of making the playoffs down the long staircase yesterday afternoon in Charlotte. The Checkers, having defeated the Barons in a shootout the day before, would again out-skill OKC, and gain two points in the standings. As it stands today, the Oklahoma City Barons are in desperate need of points. Charlotte is ahead by four, Oklahoma City has an extra game to play, and suddenly my stomach feels sour.
