The Utica Comets are leading the Oklahoma City Barons 3 games to two in the Western Conference semis. As the time until puck drop slowly inches our way, some news has come about that involves defensive changes. You aren’t going to like it, but you probably expected it.

You might recall that Musil was benched for Darnell Nurse in recent days. His terribleness wasn’t nearly as bad as it first appeared, and certainly Marincin is the one who has been playing some really confusing hockey of late. Bad passing, questionable posturing, and a massive inability to contain his own blue-line have led us to this moment. It hurts, because Marincin had been on the up in the first round of the playoffs against the Rampage. The second round, and when compared to the stoutness of the Utica prospects, Marincin has been in the weeds. Woof.
The puck drops tonight, as I’m planning summer camp for 50+ children between 3rd and 5th grade. My mind isn’t right, but that might be the best way to watch what could be the final OKC Barons game in history. Fingers crossed.
