Who to watch?BARONS TO WATCH: Teemu Hartikainen and Magnus Paajarvi have been playing pretty well together but the points haven't been coming relative to their play. It's just a matter of time before these two have a big offensive game to take some pressure off of the NHL line. Yann Danis will likely be between the pipes again after a terrific performance on Saturday with 31 saves on 33 shots against the Checkers high powered offense.

CHECKERS TO WATCH: Justin Faulk, Bobby Sanguinetti, Zac Dalpe, Zach Boychuk, and Drayson Bowman were all standouts in Saturday nights game. The Checkers might come back with goalie Dan Ellis for Sunday's contest as he has been nothing short of phenomenal for the Checkers with a 0.948 save % in 9 games.

Barons Number of the DayThe number of the day is 4 as in the Barons are 4 points below Charlotte in the South Division standings.

Quotable"We're going to need everybody to tug on the rope because Charlotte's playing good hockey. They're a good hockey team and we can't afford to have any kind of lapses. We need to play 60 minutes (both nights) and play it well. We're getting better and better every game in certain areas and hopefully in a few months we can put the package all together and be a 'well oiled machine' -- no pun intended."-Coach Todd Nelson on what he thinks it'll take to beat the top team in the west the Charlotte Checkers.
