With four of the next five games against the Charlotte Checkers, the Oklahoma City Barons are in a four-dog fight for two playoff spots, one of which is occupied by the Checkers.
|10||Oklahoma City Barons||66||30||27||2||7||69||0.523||206||226||1-0-0-0||5-3-1-1||1-7||1117|
Rochester is off both tonight and tomorrow after a loss against Toronto last night. Rockford has two games this weekend, taking on the Grand Rapids Griffins (on a two-game losing streak) tonight and the Chicago Wolves (on a five-game point streak) tomorrow afternoon.
So the best case scenario is pretty simple – two wins by the Barons, two losses by the IceHogs – and OKC finds themselves tied for 7th in the standings come Monday morning. If all three teams split and earn one win this weekend? Well, then we just get to re-visit again next weekend.
