Barons notebook: San Antonio beats Barons 4-3

By Scott Munn, Assistant Sports Editor, Published: December 31, 2011

*Philippe Cornet, who has been hampered recently with an undisclosed injury, was a scratch vs. the Rampage. The Barons' leading goal scorer (15) had played the two previous games against Rochester. ... Cornet's regular linemate, Teemu Hartikainen was popped in the mouth area by the puck in the first period Saturday, but he continued to play out his shift and the game.

*The Barons' Tanner House failed to score on a first-period penalty shot. Oklahoma City is 0 for 5 on penalty shots in its two-year history in the American Hockey League. ... The Edmonton Oilers sent defenseman Colten Teubert back to Oklahoma City on Saturday. He did not arrive in time to play vs. San Antonio.

*No coincidence. The Rampage, which wears silver and black uniforms, is owned by the NBA's San Antonio Spurs. The Rampage jerseys have a Spurs logo on the shoulder.


The Barons begin a four-game road swing, beginning at 5:05 p.m. Sunday at Houston. The Barons return to the Cox Center on Friday, Jan. 13, against Rockford.
