“We've gotten production from all four lines,” Hall said. “That's been a big part of our success. And we've gotten some good goaltending. You can see why they were such a good team last year. Our depth is very strong.”
The Barons' high-powered offense has scored 29 goals the past six games.
“We're getting more comfortable with each other, more chemistry,” said Justin Schultz, who leads the AHL in scoring (28 points). “All four lines are playing unbelievable hockey. As a defenseman I just move it in and they're controlling pucks down low. It's been unreal.”
The Barons are led by four players that would be playing in Edmonton if there weren't an NHL lockout. Eberle (26 points) is second in the AHL in scoring behind Schultz. Ryan Nugent-Hopkins is fifth (20 points).
“This team is on a roll now,” said Phillipe Cornet, recently recalled from Stockton. “If we keep playing the way we are, especially with that top line, Eberle, Hall and RNH and Schultzy in the back, it brings so much to our team that we're going to be a hard team to beat.”
