MARINCIN FLYING UNDER RADAR?

Defenseman Martin Marincin, who recorded two assists Saturday, has a plus-14 rating for the season. The rookie from Slovakia has 21 points, including 16 assists.

“The plus/minus with him I think is a true stat for what he's done,” said Oklahoma City coach Todd Nelson. “Sometimes you get a minus that's not your fault. But Marty has been playing pretty steady. He's making smarter decisions. Like any young defenseman, you'll have ups and downs, but he's played well.”

OIL SPILLS ...

Al Moon won a Ford F150 at Saturday's game. The Barons are giving away a brand new vehicle at every Saturday home game this season. Moon was the 10th winner. Three more vehicles will be given away, two on April 6 and another on April 19. ... Goaltender Yann Danis, recently promoted to Edmonton, played the final two periods Friday night in the Oilers' 6-0 loss at Nashville. Danis recorded 17 saves but allowed four goals.
