After Saturday's 2-1 loss, 11 of the last 14 Barons games have been decided by one goal and 21 of the last 22 have come down to one goal or a goal plus an empty-netter.

“It's a little frustrating, especially when we're not winning,” Barons defenseman Dylan Yeo said. “We're just in a slump. Every team goes through stretches like this.”

The Barons lead the American Hockey league with 26 one-goal games, going 14-7-2-3.

THREE STARS

1. Danny Taylor, Abbotsford

The Barons managed 33 shots but Taylor stopped all but Dylan Yeo's second-period blast.

2. Jordan Henry, Abbotsford

Assisted on both Abbotsford goals and had a first-period fight with Barons winger Antti Tyrvainen.

3. Dylan Yeo, Barons

Scored the Barons goal, his second of the season, 13:08 into the second period on a blast from inside the blue line.
