Edmonton Oil Kings netminder Tristan Jarry continued his storybook campaign, registering his second shutout of the season, in helping Edmonton to a crucial 2-0 win over the Kooteany Ice at Rexall Place. The victory moved the defending WHL Champions back into to top spot in the Central Division, two points clear of the Calgary Hitmen.
After running off five straight victories, the Oklahoma City Barons have dropped their second in as many nights to the Houston Aeros, this time by a score of 4-3. The win marks the fourth time in five games, that the Barons have fallen to the Aeros this year, as they continue to ride the Minnesota Wild jinx over all things related to the Edmonton Oilers.

Maybe it has something to do with those Minnesota Wild styled jerseys reeking havoc with all things related to the Edmonton Oilers or perhaps it is just a case of dumb luck. Whatever the reason, the Oklahoma City Barons five game win streak came to a crashing halt on Thursday night, losing for the third time in four meetings to the Houston Aeros. The 2-1 loss marked the second time they have dropped a decision to the Aeros via the shootout.

While I was one who felt felt having Justin Schultz start his pro career in the American Hockey League would benefit him greatly, at no point did I envision what the talented blueliner has managed to accomplish during the first eighteen games of his career. The Edmonton Oilers were well aware of the type of player they were getting when the decided to sign the puck-moving rearguard but no one could have seen this coming.

The Oklahoma City Barons are starting to hit their stride and make their way up the American Hockey League standings and their most recent stretch has been fueled by the Oilers young quartet, with Taylor Hall leading the way..

With the core of the Edmonton Oilers NHL roster starting to click on a regular basis down in OKC, the Barons are quickly becoming the talk of the American Hockey League. A third consecutive three point night from Taylor Hall, another two goal effort from Jordan Eberle and three more points from defenceman Justin Schultz, was more than enough on Sunday afternoon.
On a night in which the Edmonton Oil Kings should have a had an easy time of things, it was the play of former Oil Kings netminder Cam Lanigan, that made things far closer than they should have been. A late overtime marker by Keegan Lowe spoiled Lanigan's forty-five save performance, lifting Edmonton to a crucial 2-1 victory over the visiting Medicine Hat Tigers.
Another three point night from Taylor Hall and two more goals from the red-hot Jordan Eberle, paced the Oklahoma City Barons to a huge 4-2 win over the Charlotte Checkers. While the Edmonton Oilers dynamic duo led the charge upfront, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Justin Schultz still managed to lend a helping hand in the victory.
