“(Schultz) did it half as many games,” Hunt said. “He is such an excellent hockey player. To pass somebody like that is pretty cool, but it would mean a lot more if we made the playoffs.”


The Barons have won four consecutive home games to match their longest home streak of the season.

Since mid-January, the Barons are 12-2-1 at home. Both regulation losses were against defending Calder Cup champion Grand Rapids.

“It’s comforting to know we’ll have our final three games at home,” Nelson said, “but this will have to continue for us to get into the playoffs.”


The Barons play their final two road games of the regular season next weekend (Friday and Sunday) at Abbottsford, a team that’s essentially clinched a playoff berth. Game times are 9 p.m. Friday and 3 p.m. Sunday.

“We have to go in with the mindset that we’re going to get four more points,” Hunt said. “We can’t rely on other teams to do things for us. We need to win games so we won’t need any help.”

Oklahoma City closes the regular season with three home games April 16 (first-place Texas), and April 18-19 (last-place Iowa).
