Game 4 of the American Hockey League's Western Conference Final between Oklahoma City and Grand Rapids will be played at 7 p.m. Saturday at the Cox Convention Center. Game 5 will be played at 4 p.m. Sunday afternoon.
The game originally scheduled for Friday was postponed because of severe flooding on the east side of the arena. Another factor was severe weather moved through the downtown area minutes near game time. The arena was evacuated to the parking garage below ground.
Fans returned 45 minutes later but were asked to move to the west sections when the arena suffered severe leaking and flooding. In the interest of the safety of the players, fans and staff, it was deemed play could not begin.
"Mother Nature has provided the citizens of Central Oklahoma many challenges over the last two weeks,” said Prodigal CEO Bob Funk Jr., who runs the Barons for the Edmonton Oilers.
“Now that June has arrived, the Oklahoma City Barons are offering fans an opportunity to take their mind off the weather and enjoy a Calder Cup playoff game. Fans from areas impacted by the storms from the last two weeks are invited to attend the Barons game June 1 or 2 at no charge."
Fans impacted by the storm interested in attending either game Saturday and Sunday simply need to show their identification with proof of residency at the Cox Convention Center Box Office on June 1 or 2.
