Starting back-to-back games on back-to-back nights for the first time since last year's ECHL Double-A playoffs, goaltender Olivier Roy recorded 31 saves after being replaced Friday night after two periods with OKC trailing 5-0.

“The guys did a great job tonight letting me see the puck. That makes my job a lot easier,” Roy said. “It's great after going through a tough one like we had (Friday) that you don't have to wait a week to get back at it. We put that game behind us and got a lot better result.”

The Barons have been unable to put a streak together the first month of the American Hockey League season but are 5-6-1 despite constant roster changes.

“I was really proud of all the guys,” Nelson said. “They really stepped up their game. Whatever we're missing on paper compared to Chicago our guys made it up with heart. That's what I'm most proud of.

“Our guys played their hearts out. We're going to have to do that to compete at this level. Until we get some players back from injury or sent down (from Edmonton) this is the way we're going to have to play.”
