Players to watch
OKC: Omark-O'Marra-Reddox. Need I say more?
SA: Tim Stapleton(23) scored twice in their last game against the Barons. Mathieu Beaudoin(26) leads the Rampage with 14 points.

The Barons game on Sunday against the Marlies just about gave me a heart attack. That will be one of the best hockey moments I remember seeing in my lifetime. It's awesome that I was able to be there in person. We'll see if Omark is able to continue his scoring ways tonight. I'm not expecting another 5 goal game at all, but I definitely would not complain one bit if he decided to have another one. Hopefully the other lines decide to start scoring tonight too. JF Jacques will be playing tonight. No word on who will be in net tonight. The puck drop is at 7:05 CDT/6:05 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.
