UPDATE: Schedule released.

The Texas Stars have learned this evening who their first round opponent will be. The Oklahoma City Barons, who knocked Texas out in the second round last year, will be that opponent. The series will start in Oklahoma City, likely middle of next week.

The Cox Convention Center has some conflicting events that will make Game 2 scheduling difficult. Packet pickup for the OKC Memorial Marathon is scheduled until 8 PM on Friday and 6 PM on Saturday. My personal guess is Wednesday the 23rd (before the Oklahoma Dental Convention starts) and Saturday with a later than usual start (8 or 8:30 PM).

Here's the full schedule:
Game 1 – Wednesday, April 23rd7:00 p.m. at Oklahoma City (Cox Convention Center)
Game 2 – Saturday, April 26th8:00 p.m. at Oklahoma City (Cox Convention Center)
Game 3 – Wednesday, April 30th7:30 p.m. vs. Oklahoma City (Cedar Park Center)
Game 4** – Friday, May 2nd7:30 p.m. vs. Oklahoma City (Cedar Park Center)
Game 5** – Saturday, May 3rd  – 7:00 p.m. vs. Oklahoma City (Cedar Park Center)
** - if necessary

Of the eight first round series, the Stars/Barons matchup is the only one yet determined. Full breakdown of the coming series and a finalized schedule will be coming in the next few days.


  1. Horrible setup by the AHL, again. OKC is the 8th seed but gets two games guaranteed in a five game series. It would of been better to enter the series as an eight seed. Given the history Texas couldn't of had a worse 1st round matchup.
