Who to watch?BARONS TO WATCH: Justin Schultz' 10 game point streak came to a halt against the Rampage on Sunday and he didn't have a particularly strong game on defense either. Will he be able to put that game behind him and start a new stretch of strong play or has he hit the rookie wall after being leaned on very heavily by the Barons?

RIVERMEN TO WATCH: The Rivermen are led offensively by long time AHL vets TJ Hensick and Derek Nesbitt, rookie Jaden Schwartz, and defenseman Ian Cole. Peoria has a -27 goal differential which is worst in the league. Former Baron Taylor Chorney -20 in 23 games and the aforementioned Schwartz -14 are among 4 Rivermen with a -10 or worse +/- rating.

Quotable"It's the same guys scoring goals we have to get contributions from other lines we just do and that's something that I can't explain, last year we had scoring spread around. I'm not runnig my lines any different and so those guys have to come to the party, enough's enough."-Barons head coach Todd Nelson after Tuesday's loss against Peoria on his teams lack of secondary scoring.
