Players to watch
OKC: Giroux is coming off of a 2 goal game in Houston. Omark is riding a 2 game goal scoring streak. Moran is coming off of his hat trick from Saturday. McDonald, Petry, Vande Velde, Hartikainen, and Reddox also had a goal in Sunday's game.
LEM: Matthew Ford(23) netted a goal in Lake Erie's game on Sunday. He also had an assist in the game against the Barons on Saturday. He also leads his team in scoring.
This will cap off the Barons 4 games in 5 nights trip. Next weekend is going to be a hectic one as well. Friday night at home against San Antonio, then they fly to Toronto for a game Saturday, and then it's off to Hamilton for their televised game on Sunday. It'll be interesting to see if the Barons can keep the momentum going tonight from their huge win on Sunday. As always, you can follow myself(@AHLBarons) and Scott(@OilFieldHockey) as we tweet during the game. The game will be broadcast on AHL Live(which is better now) and by listening on 96.1 KXY.
