Oklahoma City (Again) Beats A Team In OT, Texas Farewell

Oklahoma City (Again) Beats A Team In OT, Texas Farewell

The Oklahoma City Barons hosted the Texas Stars for what certainly is the last regular season match-up between the two, but it quite honestly might be the last time the two teams meet EVER. With Oklahoma City exiting the AHL 14-15 season, the farewell tour begins, and it begins against a familiar opponent.

The Texas Stars came to the Cox Center climbing the charts. Looking incredibly sturdy over the last ten, and gaining points in the West, they would give the Barons a good run for their money on a chilly Tuesday evening in Bricktown.

“We are going to play our game regardless of the opponent,” said Gerry Fleming earlier this week. “We know what we can do, we will stick to the plan.” They did do just that, but Texas is a solid opponent with their stock on the rise.

The Barons Split The Weekend, Fragility Apparent

The Barons Split The Weekend, Fragility Apparent

The Oklahoma City Barons of a week ago were leading the league in standing points, and seemed to be poised to ride that pony through most of February and in to March. They were tough, competitive nightly, and resilient from behind – basically the stuff of AHL greatness. But recent games have proven that there are a few cracks in the facade.

The team split a pair of home games with the Adirondack Flames over the weekend (Friday and Saturday) and likely should have lost both.

Magnus Paajarvi Beats OKC, Alicia Silverstone In Attendance (Seriously)

Magnus Paajarvi Beats OKC, Alicia Silverstone In Attendance (Seriously)

During the first and second intermission of the Oklahoma City Barons at Chicago Wolves game, Ryan Kwanten of True Blood fame, emerged from the tunnel wearing goaltender pads (this is now his second trip to the Wolves arena). Flanked by Alicia Silverstone, the two were filming in Illinois for an upcoming independent rom-com called Who Gets The Dog?. This film is probably right in my wheelhouse, but it was the only sweet, kind, or otherwise romantic moment of the game for anyone wearing an OKC sweater.

The Weekend Of 66, Barons Lose Then Win

The Weekend Of 66, Barons Lose Then Win

Congratulations, Oklahoma City Barons. You only won a single game this weekend (of two), and yet you have retained your spot as the best team (points wise) in the American Hockey League. Your journey to here and now is impressive, and with less than thirty games remaining, the world is your oyster. And remember, only buy oysters in months that have the letter “R” in them. Thanks grandma.

The Texas two-step that the Barons encountered this weekend was going to require some risky business to emerge unscathed. After some tough comp from the Lake Eri-tating Monsters a week ago, OKC would head south to play the San Antonio Rampage on Saturday night followed by the final trip to Austin (ever, most likely) to face the Texas Stars. This would roll out the beginning of a five-game road trip for the Barons as they march boldly towards Valentine’s Day.

OKC With Erie-tating Weekend, Split The Series

OKC With Erie-tating Weekend, Split The Series

The Oklahoma City Barons have traditionally been a straight forward team. They rely heavily on the play of their goaltenders. Insist on crisp, open-ice passing, and realize they need to be responsible for their own play (good or bad). This has allowed them to be a team prone to make better decisions more, and awful decisions less. They also don’t lose a ton of games playing this way.

Friday and Saturday were anything but Barons-esque.

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.
