After riding the coattails of Jordan Eberle to back-to-back weekend victories over the San Antonio Rampage, the Oklahoma City Barons fell just short of completing a perfect weekend, falling 4-3 to the Houston Aeros in you guessed it...another shootout. Taylor Hall led the charge upfront, with a goal and two assists, but in the end it wasn't enough.

While defenceman Justin Schultz has been the talk of the American Hockey League with the torrid start to his pro debut with the Oklahoma City Barons, he suddenly has company atop the league scoring race. That company being none other than current teammate and future Edmonton Oilers teammate, Jordan Eberle.

It had been some time since the Oklahoma City Barons had last won a hockey game but on this night the crew of Edmonton Oilers were too much for the San Antonio Rampage to handle. Taylor Hall scored the eventual game winner, while Jordan Eberle, Magnus Paajarvi and Justin Schultz also lit the lamp, in the Barons 5-1 victory. The win not only snapped OKC's losing streak but marked only their second win in five tries against the last place Rampage.

With starting netminder Laurent Brossoit more than likely to be named to Team Canada's World Junior roster in the coming days, the Edmonton Oil Kings have handed the reigns over to backup Tristan Jarry, for the foreseeable future. If Wednesday night's performance was any indication of the type of goaltending they can expect to receive in the absence of their number one guy, Edmonton appear to be in very capable hands.

The Oklahoma City Barons were hoping a return home from their seven game road trip would get them back to their winning ways. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case, as the Barons dropped their fifth straight, falling 4-2 to the Peoria Rivermen.

Apparently having a full week off did little to shake up the struggling Oklahoma City Barons. Back-to-back one goal losses to the San Antonio Rampage on Saturday night Sunday afternoon, brought the club's lengthy seven game road swing to a disappointing end. After starting the trek off with a perfect 3-0 run, four consecutive defeats left the Barons with a 3-3-0-1 mark for the trip.

After running off five straight victories, the Oklahoma City Barons have dropped their second in as many nights to the Houston Aeros, this time by a score of 4-3. The win marks the fourth time in five games, that the Barons have fallen to the Aeros this year, as they continue to ride the Minnesota Wild jinx over all things related to the Edmonton Oilers.
Friday, November 30, 2012
Maybe it has something to do with those Minnesota Wild styled jerseys reeking havoc with all things related to the Edmonton Oilers or perhaps it is just a case of dumb luck. Whatever the reason, the Oklahoma City Barons five game win streak came to a crashing halt on Thursday night, losing for the third time in four meetings to the Houston Aeros. The 2-1 loss marked the second time they have dropped a decision to the Aeros via the shootout.

For the most part, things have been going according to plan for the Edmonton Oilers organization of late.

With the core of the Edmonton Oilers NHL roster starting to click on a regular basis down in OKC, the Barons are quickly becoming the talk of the American Hockey League. A third consecutive three point night from Taylor Hall, another two goal effort from Jordan Eberle and three more points from defenceman Justin Schultz, was more than enough on Sunday afternoon.
Another three point night from Taylor Hall and two more goals from the red-hot Jordan Eberle, paced the Oklahoma City Barons to a huge 4-2 win over the Charlotte Checkers. While the Edmonton Oilers dynamic duo led the charge upfront, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Justin Schultz still managed to lend a helping hand in the victory.

Ever since Taylor Hall joined his Edmonton Oilers teammates down in Oklahoma City, it seemed as though it would only be a matter of time before the Barons would start filling the net on a nightly basis. Apparently that time has arrived, as the Oilers youngsters are starting to terrorize goaltenders across the AHL.

The Milwaukee Admirals managed to hold the Edmonton Oilers youngsters at bay in the opening game of their back-to-back weekend set with the Oklahoma City Barons. The Admirals earned an overtime loss for their efforts on Friday night but they would not be so lucky in Saturday's re-match.
