Games 4 and 5 of the Western Conference Finals between the Barons and Toronto Marlies will be televised on Cox Channel 3 (703 in HD) in the Oklahoma City area.

The Toronto feed for the game will be used, with the Marlies announcers calling the action.

The Barons will have a watch party for all three games in Toronto, including Monday afternoon's Game 3, at Buffalo Wild Wings on Northwest Expressway.

BARONS-MARLIES GET PHYSICAL LATE

With just more than two minutes remaining and the Barons up 5-1 Friday night, things got heated on the ice between the teams with a line brawl breaking out.

Tanner House and Will Acton got the action started with a fight that drew each a five-minute major.

But by the time the dust cleared, nine players were sent off and 92 penalty minutes combined were called, including game misconducts to the Barons' Triston Grant and Toronto's Korbinian Holzer.

“They're a proud bunch,” Barons coach Todd Nelson said of the Marlies. “They had to push back tonight. The playoffs are emotional. But you're not going to see what happened tonight in the last five minutes carry over to the first of Game 3.”

THREE STARS

1. Magnus Paajarvi, Barons

Paajarvi assisted on a pair of goals, by Teemu Hartikainen and Chris VandeVelde, and was a plus-3.

2. Philippe Cornet, Barons

Assisted on a power-play goal by Mark Arcobello early, and then had the favor returned late in the second period when Arcobello fed Cornet for a goal in front.
