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.

Oklahoma City Clings To A Point, Charlotte Wins Two

Oklahoma City Clings To A Point, Charlotte Wins Two

Saturday night, the Oklahoma City Barons were in control of their own destiny as they faced the Charlotte Checkers. The feeble nature of the Barons squad, with its missing pieces in various shapes due to callups and injuries, has meant that offense, and threat have…

Rochester Loses, Charlotte Survives, Barons Win

Rochester Loses, Charlotte Survives, Barons Win

Recently Frozen made it’s way on to DVD and into the hearts of the children in my home (previously into my wallet via the theaters), and if I’ve learned one thing from Olaf the Snowman it’s this…”all good things, all good things”.

On a rare Tuesday game in the minor leagues, the Oklahoma City Barons were able to outlast the San Antonio Rampage on the wings of two power play goals, and some really smart goaltending by the Wizarding World of Richard Bachman. THIS in fact nudges the Barons just a bit closer to a playoff spot, but with a few wrinkles.

Oklahoma City Loses Second Straight Game, Marlies Dominate Despite “The Biz”

Oklahoma City Loses Second Straight Game, Marlies Dominate Despite “The Biz”

It’s rare that the Oklahoma City Barons travel to play the Toronto Marlies. When they do it feels special, and it usually happens at a point in the season when wins are needed. Rolling out of bed following a 4-3 loss at the hands of the Grand Rapids Griffins, our beloved Oklahoma City Barons traveled to Toronto to hopefully survive a stout three-in-three.

Richard Bachman would get another start in net, a rarity in a three-in-three on the road, and he would be excellent to start. Likewise, back-up Marlies’ tender, Garret Sparks would be surprisingly good in the first twenty minutes. Back and forth the teams would go, and although the shots would be ten a piece after twenty minutes, the chances were strong for both clubs. The Marlies, in particular, challenged Bachman in close, and he was stellar. Sparks was good too, but had some assistance from a goalpost clank, and a few long-distance shots from Barons defenders. One slashing penalty from Toronto allowed the Barons to unfurl a power play about as dynamic as a wet blanket, and the mud-skating would continue for much of the period. As Bachman continued to save the bacon of his defensemen, the period would end. A scoreless game after twenty minutes of play.
