After Tuesday's horribly refereed game, the Barons look to rebound and get back on the winning track. After giving up 6 goals in each of the last two games, the goalies and the defense are really going to need to step it up and prevent that from happening again. Omark should be receiving his AHL/Reebok Player of the Week award tonight. The team has a whole week off after tonight, going into it with a win would be a great way to start it off. The puck drop is at 6:05 CDT/5:05 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.
