Players to watch
OKC: I'd expect Gerber to be in net tonight, but they want to get JDD playing, so it could very well be him. Jacques will be back in the lineup tonight.
TOR: Nazem Kadri(13) leads the Marlies with 9 points, 4 of which were in the game against the Barons. Four players behind him are tied at 6 points apiece.

After a pretty disappointing loss last night, the team will be looking to rebound. There's not a whole lot you can fault JDD for last night, the defense didn't show up like they should have. The Barons had no real forecheck whereas the Aeros were forechecking the whole night. Hopefully the Barons make the right adjustments and are able to leave tonight's game with an even season series against the Marlies. The puck drop is at 5:05 CDT/4:05 MDT. The game will be broadcast on 96.1 KXY. As always, you can follow myself(@AHLBarons) and Scott(@OilFieldHockey) as we tweet from the game.
