Jordan Eberle nets hat trick as Barons beat San Antonio

By Mike Baldwin Published: December 15, 2012

The Rampage, though, also got a hat trick from Jon Sim, his final goal making it 4-3 with 7:31 left. Eberle sealed the Barons' win with his fourth goal, an empty-netter with 4.7 seconds left.

Arcobello, one of the key players in the Barons' run to the Western Conference finals last season, had four assists.

“We had a lot of good chemistry tonight,” Arcobello said. “This is one I'm sure Ebs will always remember.”

Nelson moved Arcobello to Eberle's line earlier in the week, putting Hall on a line with Magnus Paajarvi and Anton Lander.

“We had Arco on a line with Ebs a lot during training camp and there's chemistry there,” Nelson said. “Arco is a creative thinker. It was very evident when he set up Justin Schultz for our first goal.”

Schultz had a goal and an assist. But with five points in Saturday's win, Eberle has tied Schultz for the AHL scoring lead. They both have 37 points.

The Barons entered the weekend in ninth in the Western Conference. Following back-to-back wins over San Antonio, the Barons head into Sunday's game at Houston tied for fifth.

“It was a very good game for us, a nice win,” Nelson said. “We had key goals at certain times. It was great efforts by Jordan Eberle and Mark Arcobello.”
