“I'd much rather get the win,” Schultz said. “It doesn't feel good when you get points and you don't get the win. The two power-play goals were probably the only positive tonight. It's very frustrating. We've got to get this figured out.”


AHL officials announced Barons left winger Kristians Pelss will be ineligible until Oklahoma City plays Charlotte on Jan. 11. Pelss was suspended 21 games for a Dec. 1 slashing incident with Stockton in the ECHL, a suspension the AHL will uphold.


Barons backup goaltender Olivier Roy stopped 30 shots but dropped to 2-4. ... Fans are encouraged to bring a new or gently loved stuffed animal to Saturday's game. ... Peoria goaltender Jake Allen got a rare assist on the Rivermen's second goal. Allen started a breakout with a long pass that ended with a T.J. Hensick goal.
