Final Regular Season Homestand Begins Tonight, Bulldogs Welcomed

Final Regular Season Homestand Begins Tonight, Bulldogs Welcomed

One game has been played between the Hamilton Bulldogs and the Oklahoma City Barons in the season of 2014-15. It was Sunday, January 11th in Hamilton, Ontario when Andrew Miller had a two point night and two more goals were scored by Iiro Pakarinen and Jason Williams en route to a 3-0 domination of the Montreal Canadians farm team. That night Richard Bachman stopped 32 shots, including several early on that were season-long highlights, and the blue-line pushed back on Hamilton forwards allowing only six shots in the final twenty minutes of play. It was a spectacular performance.

A lot has happened since then – the Barons only clinched a playoff berth in the final four games, injuries have deconstructed them, and Richard Bachman might not be the #1. In all it has been a wild back-half to the AHL season, and one that has sent OKC into the sunset with much trepidation.

A Look At The Barons Roster, Rampage Tonight

A Look At The Barons Roster, Rampage Tonight

The Oklahoma City Barons host the San Antonio Rampage tonight. The team from the Alamo city has clinched a spot in the AHL postseason, and by golly tickets are already on sale. With that in mind, tonight’s game could be a tightly wound grudge match or an absolutely debilitating game for the Barons who are in desperate need of wins.

Let’s take a look at what we have to work with.

Barons Begin Road Trip (Hopefully No Stumble) Against #2 Griffins

Barons Begin Road Trip (Hopefully No Stumble) Against #2 Griffins

When you trip sometimes you fall. Sometimes you catch yourself, pull friends down with you, spill your coffee, twist an ankle, scuff up an elbow, or split your pants. Falling sounds better.

A road trip like the one the Oklahoma City Barons will entertain for three days will be a test, and here is hoping that they avoid catastrophe.

OKC Barons Host Lake Erie Monsters This Weekend

OKC Barons Host Lake Erie Monsters This Weekend

The weekend has arrived and so have the Monsters. Not Godzilla. No Bigfoot. No Babadook (if you’ve not seen this film, see it with the lights on). Instead we get the always ferocious group of hockey folk from Ohio (God’s country) where there just might be a scary creature hiding in the waters, but most certainly on the ice.

The Lake Erie Monsters are having a rough go this season. Just barely over .500 mid-way through the season, the team from the Cleveland area can’t seem to pull the strings to get Pinocchio to dance. Coming off two big wins against San Antonio, and two losses against the Iowa Wild, the Monsters are attempting to gain as many points as they can before the hunt for playoff spots officially begins.

Nestled in eleventh place in the Western Conference just behind Hamilton and Texas, they are the only team in the league who haven’t passed the 41 game mark. This means they have games in hand on everyone as we march in to February, and that’s good news even for team’s with the worst of luck.

One Of The Best In The West (Utica) Rolls In To Town

One Of The Best In The West (Utica) Rolls In To Town

A quick gander at the AHL standings reveals a few very interesting things, and one really large thing. Let’s start with the elephant in the room, and that’s the amount of games remaining on the schedule. The Barons have only played 1/4 of the games they will play this season. There is so much ice to be had that heralding one team over another seems frivolous at this point. But we are indeed filling ours sails with the winds that blow from the West where some really admirable hockey is being played.

On to the bits of interesting things.

The Oklahoma City Barons, with a sideways / Oilers-like start, have resurrected themselves as most Todd Nelson helmed teams tend to do this time of year. The Barons have played one North Division opponent in that span, and that was the Toronto Marlies. The game ended in an OT thriller, and reminded me of all the times the unfamiliar opponents of the North (and to a similar extent, the Midwest) give us the best games of the season.
