Barons Sweep! Take Game Three In OT

Barons Sweep! Take Game Three In OT

‘Tis a glorious thing to behold, a team that can challenge opponents deep into games. That has been the case for much of the 2014-15 season, and now, suddenly, those moments include the Calder Cup postseason.

Last night, with the Rampage facing elimination, the Oklahoma City Barons won game three in overtime and have advanced to the Western Conference semi-finals.

Can we do this in reverse, Memento style?

Game Two Rewind: Be Still, My Heart

Game Two Rewind: Be Still, My Heart

It’s too bad that Neal took the “How’d They Do That” caption in his rewind for Game One, because it completely fits my reaction for how Game Two happened. Game Two was split into two completely different games as the San Antonio Rampage controlled thirty-seven minutes, while the Oklahoma City Barons controlled the other twenty-seven. Even now, after getting to think about the game for this long, I still can’t get over how the outcome of the game came to be.

The first period completely belonged to the Rampage. The Barons defense was shaky, the offense couldn’t get anything going, and Laurent Brossoit had eighteen shots to deal with in the first twenty minutes. Goals from Connor Brickley and Corban Knight – on a power play – put San Antonio up 2-0 as the Barons headed to the locker room to sort things out.

Oklahoma City Defeats San Antonio In Game One

Oklahoma City Defeats San Antonio In Game One

The Oklahoma City Barons hosted the San Antonio Rampage in game one of the best of five series between the West Division rivals. The teams seem evenly matched, at this point in April, but one team would outlast the other in the final twenty minutes of game one.

The first period, with Dan Ellis in net for the Rampage, seemed to favor the Rampage early on as both Brad Hunt and Jason Williams would gift two power play chances for San Antonio. The Barons were able to deflect any trouble down a man, and Laurent Brossoit was dialed in like he has been over the last 20+ games of the regular season.

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.
