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.

Oklahoma City Travels North, Grand Rapids Griffins Tonight

Oklahoma City Travels North, Grand Rapids Griffins Tonight

The 12-4-2-2 Oklahoma City Barons battle the 9-8-2-0 Grand Rapids Griffins on their first trip to the North of the season. For Oklahoma City the game means they can gain a few points in the standings, and potentially a stranglehold on the top spot in…

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.

The Barons Battle #1 In The West Division In San Antonio

The Barons Battle #1 In The West Division In San Antonio

The San Antonio Rampage have won seven straight games. They’ve gone 7-3-0-0 in their last ten. They are currently sitting in the divisional lead with 24 points. As the Oklahoma City Barons travel to San Antonio for another game against the Rampage, we think back on the recent history these two have conjured up.

The Barons are currently on a four game winning streak, with their most recent loss being delved out by, you guessed it, the Rampage. They played four games prior to that time, and the Rampage won them all. All Rampage vs Barons games this season (save for one) have ended in a San Antonio victory by one goal with one settled in overtime, and two more in the shootout. Needless to say these two teams match up very well, they are familiar with one another, and by golly, they just don’t play nice. Tonight, in San Antonio, the ending is hopefully better for OKC, but the chances are high that things go the way of taut.

Back To Business, Barons At Stars Round Two

Back To Business, Barons At Stars Round Two

On Wednesday evening, prior to the US turkeying and cranberrying, the Texas Stars outplayed the Oklahoma City Barons for nearly two and a half periods. In that span they owned the Barons, but it was the suddenly good Laurent Brossoit that would keep his team within spitting distance. The Barons would rattle off two straight goals in the final ten minutes of regulation to tie the game, thus forcing an OT frame. In that OT period, Matt Ford would score the game winner just past the four minute mark.

Andrew Miller, Iiro Pakarinen, and the aforementioned Matt Ford would score the three goals that broke the Stars back. In addition, Bogdan Yakimov would have two helpers, and things suddenly felt “okay” for the Barons after being completely owned by the home team in Cedar Park.
