Gameday Preview: Stars v. Oklahoma City Barons

Texas Stars
40-17-3-5, 88 pts
#1 Western Conference
v.Oklahoma City Barons
29-26-2-7, 67 pts
#10 Western Conference
March 22nd at 7:00 PM
Cedar Park Center, Cedar Park, TX

If last night was a playoff atmosphere, you better believe tonight will be. Texas can bring Jack Campbell in net but I'm not sure OKC brings anyone but Richard Bachman.

Mark Arcobello and Roman Horak look to be out again, but did that matter last night? The Barons still scored three goals on Texas despite missing two big time scoring threats. Alex Lavoie scored his first AHL goal after being signed on a PTO Thursday. That's depth scoring.

Same story as last night. Texas has to hope for a better result. Nothing wrong with two points, but giving one away isn't great. It's especially not great when those points could make these Barons a first round opponent in the Calder Cup Playoffs.
