DANIS POSTS A SHUTOUT

Texas Stars goaltender Cristopher Nilstorp has been the hottest goalie during the American Hockey League playoffs, but Barons goalie Yann Danis has been hot for two months.

Danis stopped all 30 shots Monday night in a Barons 4-0 win that gave Oklahoma City a 2-1 edge in a second-round, best-of-7 Western Conference series.

“When we were up 2-0 late in the second period he made a huge glove save on a one-timer,” said Oklahoma City coach Todd Nelson. “That might have been the defining moment of this game.”

Since he returned from Edmonton, the 31-year-old Quebec, Canada, product is 16-4-4 with a 1.93 goals against average and .931 saves percentage.

“We wanted to make a statement here at home,” Danis said. “It probably was our best game of the series. We played well from the get-go. We're playing some good hockey, but we have to keep it going because they're a good team.”

ARCOBELLO SCORES 6th GOAL

Barons forward Mark Arcobello scored his sixth goal of the playoffs. Arcobello has scored one goal in all three games of the series.

An AHL All-Star whose strength is assists (he had 46 during the regular season), Arcobello is among the AHL playoff scoring leaders with 10 points.
