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.

Barons Win The Weekend, Beat Texas Twice

Barons Win The Weekend, Beat Texas Twice

Robust. Full featured. Long suffering. After reaching the second weekend of games without a win, one could use many words to describe how the team needed to play to finally earn a “W”. “We have to play a full, complete game to compete against Texas,” said Todd Nelson on Friday, “We know we can do it, we just have to prove it.” And prove it they did, defeating the Texas Stars twice this weekend in a home-and-home format.

Barons Struggle To Play Full Game, Lose To San Antonio

Barons Struggle To Play Full Game, Lose To San Antonio

The Rampage and the Barons were both coming off losses the night prior to meeting on Saturday in the heart of Oklahoma City. While the Barons carried over their solid final period from the night before, the Rampage would continue the so-so doldrums. But quickly the script would flip and the Rampage would out man, out muscle, and flat out dominate the back half of the game on route to a 5-4 victory.
