Road wins have been rare after the holidays.

Since Jordan Eberle, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, Justin Schultz and Taylor Hall returned to Edmonton, the Barons have won only one of seven road games but earned a standing point in two shootout losses.

Clark is among four veterans (Jonathan Cheechoo, Darcy Hordichuk and defenseman Randy Jones) that have joined the Barons since the lockout ended.

“The chemistry is there,” Clark said. “As a whole I think we're starting to click together. That's a credit to a good coaching staff that's putting the right systems in place.”
