The second game in two days for the Oklahoma City Barons means that the legs will need to be motoring. The game, scheduled to begin at 3:00 Central, is the first game of the early season for a Rampage team that has been nearly reminiscent of their parent club, the Florida Panthers. But as is the case each and every AHL season, new faces, new leaders, new directions – all teams seemingly start at square one. So the nearly three hour drive from Cedar Park over to Houston is now complete, and the Barons attempt to win their second game in (less than) two days.
Expect a similar lineup to the one we saw last night, but with a swap of goaltenders. Brossoit played 2/3 of last night’s game with Bunz rounding things out nicely. Expect the same from Ty Rimmer and Frans Tuohimaa. Also look for Kevin Noble of St. Charles (CHL) and Gregor Hanson of Allen (CHL) to dress.
Richard Bachman has cleared waivers, and will join the team back in Oklahoma City.
The Rampage added six key players in the last 24 hours. Rocco Grimaldi, Drew Shore, Vincent Trocheck, Alex Petrovic and Mackenzie Weegar are names most Barons fans have come to know and sorta despise (save for noob Weegar). No word on if they will be in attendance for the game or not. Regardless, Barons vs. Rampage games are always entertaining. We also will get a good look at one of the two opponents the Barons will face in the month of October to start the season.
Game starts at 3:00 CT, is on the 2.0 radio broadcast of 1340 The Game, and is available via iHeart Radio app.
Let’s Go Barons!
