my game #5 follow up.

1st Period:
  • AHL live was out for the first half (maybe up to 12 minutes) of the 1st period so by the time it started it was already 1-0 for the Barons.
  • The feed is pretty ****ed up, I can't even make it full screen, the Heat broadcasts aren't working either. Not only that but for some unknown reason the Barons arena is set up like Rectal, the cameras are all on the same side as the benches and face the penalty boxes. I swear these are the only 2 pro rinks in North America that do this.
  • Granlund making his AHL debut & Lamb making his season debut, Brossoit dressed as the backup for the first time as a pro. Sieloff is a scratch for the 3rd straight game and did not make the trip.
  • The 2-0 Omark undressed a Heat forward, then Breen and shelved it overtop of Berra. Beautiful goal. Goal was great but these announcers are god awful.
  • Shots are even at 10 after 1.

2nd Period:
  • Quick Heat penalty by Bancks, followed by a quick goal. Good passing by the Barons to set up a cross crease pass and one timer for the goal, other than attempting to break up the pass Berra was helpless.
  • Cundari leaves with what looks like a foot injury.
  • Heat getting called for another Penalty and Barons score again, another good cross ice pass. Not much chance for Berra on goals 2, 3 &4.
  • God that explanation frm teh colour guy was so brutal. He explains the goal afterwards awkwardly..... the following took the guy from the time the Barons scored, to after the puck dropped again, with a goaltending change being made during that time as well. OKC fans deserve so much better than this senile old man who sounds like he has 1 foot in the grave.
    • "He rushed to the bench and a new guy came on, which is uhhhh [silence] a new guy came on, which was Nesbitt and he uhhhhh [pause] substituted for the goalie for the 6 on 5 and low and behold Nesbitt gets an assist. So uhhhh that's a good heads up play by the goaltender, alot of times fans don't uhhh understand why, a new uhhhhh [silence] uhhhh team can have 6 players on the ice. But the team that's getting the penalty must get full possession of the puck and then the whitle will go then uhhhhh the play will be stopped. So right there the Barons held the puck for at least 30 seconds and scored 6 on 5."
  • Brossoit in, Berra out. And still no Heat audio feed
  • Bancks with another dumb penalty for slashing (2nd penalty in 5 minutes of play)
  • and the tides begin to change.....
  • Good PK from the Heat, don't think a shot on goal was allowed
  • Shortly after the PK, Granlund takes a big shot from just inside the blueline and Hanowski jumps on the rebound to make it 4-1.
  • At the end of the period Elson took a deflected shot to the throat and skated to the bench.
  • Heat get their first PP with 7 seconds left in the 2nd when Brady Lamb takes a stick to the face.
  • Shots are 24-22 for OKC after 2.

2nd Intermission:
  • It appears the Barons cheerleaders are about as talented as the Oilers goaltenders. Their idea of a dance routine is to step to the right and clap, then step to the left and clap... now repeat for 5 minutes.

3rd Period:
  • Billins scores very quickly on the PP making it 4-2
  • Complete domination by the Heat so far 5 minutes in.
  • Elson is back on the ice, but still no Cundari.
  • Max Reinhart seeing time at the point on the PP.
  • Lamb moving the puck extremely well on the PP.
  • Byron wins a battle along the boards, passes out in the slot to Bancks and Olson bangs in the rebound to draw the Heat within 1.
  • Shots were 22-4 in the 3rd period. But Heat just can't quite even it up.
