The Oklahoma City Barons needed to do something before it was too late. After the loss on Monday night, OKC is turning towards the young ‘uns to help make things a bit more difficult for Utica to combat.
Announced today, Darnell Nurse, Kyle Platzer, and Greg Chase will all enter tonight’s lineup against the Utica Comets.

Gerry Fleming semi-confirmed via Oilers Now yesterday that Nurse wold be in, and that they needed to tweak the roster to “give us chances to win”. All additions are good, sound choices.
Greg Chase, I really like. He is an unfraid forward. Darnell Nurse, if anything, gives Utica something different from the defensive side of the puck. Kyle Platzer, although not the most obvious choice, was on a bit of a roll in four regular season games with OKC scoring twice and earning an assist. I like the changes. I just hope it isn’t too late.
Game four, with Utica leading 2-1, is tonight in OKC. The puckening commences at 7:00pm. If there were ever an important game, THIS feels like one of those.
