Players to watch
OKC: If Pitton starts in goal, we'll have to see how he bounces back from his loss. Both Reddox's and Omark's point streaks ended after being blanked vs. Hamilton. Hopefully they can get another one going tonight. Hartikainen was the lone Baron that scored when they last played Chicago.
CHI: Darren Haydar(20) and Jason Krog(10) lead the team with 7 points a piece. Haydar and Riley Holzapfel(9) are the two Wolves who scored when they last played the Barons.

Coming off the OT win in the CBC broadcast game vs. Hamilton, the Barons look to build on it after actually being able to get some good rest. With the last game being broadcast on television, it gave everyone else a chance to see what we in OKC have been complaining about since the season started, the team just can't catch any breaks. Hopefully the team can step up the PP and the team can get some pucks in the net. Puck drop is at 7 CT/6 MT. The game will be broadcast on 96.1 KXY As always, you can follow myself(@AHLBarons) and Scott(@OilFieldHockey) as we tweet during the game.
