The Barons look to come back to end their losing streak after a split with Lake Erie and a loss in Texas. Ryan O'Marra has stayed out of the lineup the last few games and still remains questionable. Petiot continues to be injured from his lower body injury. OKC fans may remember the Moose. Sebastien Centomo was called up to the Moose a couple times when he played for the Blazers. Alexandre Giroux continues to try to break out of his scoring slump. Puck drop is at 7:30. The game will be broadcast on 96.1 KXY.
