What appeared to be a low key game, the Barons would deliver to the 6,282 strong crowd a win and the takeover of first place in the West Division. One goal, a couple good scraps and free jersey night for adults and kids will hopefully keep the word going around town that the Barons are the team to see in OKC. With the NBA lockout- it’s the ONLY team in town to see for that matter.
Oklahoma City came away with a 1-0 win Friday night, pushing their win streak to 6, a franchise best. The Barons also made the AHL record books, being the first team so far this season to put up 10 wins. Tender Yann Danis remains on fire, making 30 saves to record his second shutout of the year. Danis has allowed just 5 goals in his last 6 home games.
Gilburt Brule knocked in the lone Barons goal of the night despite several great chances in the third period by Linus Omark.
OKC and Charlotte have their rematch on Saturday for back to back games, then will hop the plane after the game to head to Milwaukee for a 5pm Sunday game. With three more games in quick succesion, the Barons hope to keep their strength and streak alive through the rough patch.
