Nyquist and Andersson are a very big deal at this level and Mrazek is in one of his hot stretches, he is very tough to beat when he is on.
Griffins have blown their first chance to advance in both their previous series, this thing might go seven if it does DeKeyser also might draw in as he reported today and is skating with the team now.
As you say, OKC definitely didn't play bad. They had a lot of chances but just had no finish. Shot a lot good chances that missed the net, and GR blocks a ton of shots. OKC had a 5 min. Lapse and sure enough that was enough to dig a 3-0 hole. All the goals were preventable and mistakes by the Barons. Bad turnover first, Green lost his man chasing the puck in the defensive zone on that SH goal, and the 3rd goal was set up by one of the frequent visits to the sin bin by Ben Eager as well as one of the Barons pkers taking himself out of the play whining to the ref looking for a penalty.
OKC has done it the hard way all season. They had to claw to get into the playoffs, come from behind in the Charlotte series, so they usually respond when they have their backs against the wall - lets see if that continues and they force a game 7.
