Kyle Platzer, just a few weeks out of playing junior hockey in Canada, made quite an impression in front of 2,134 fans Tuesday night at the Cox Convention Center. The 20-year-old scored once in the second period and again in the third during the Oklahoma City Barons’ 5-3 loss to the Hamilton...
Oklahoma City appeared ready to rebound with leading scorer Andrew Miller and No. 1 goaltender Richard Bachman back in the lineup after respective promotions to the Edmonton Oilers. But Miller managed just two shots on goal, and Bachman was tagged for three first-period scores on 14 shots.

The San Antonio Rampage continued its season dominance over the Oklahoma City Barons, rolling to a 4-1 American Hockey League victory. San Antonio, which most likely assured itself the Western Division championship with the win, finished the regular season with a 9-1-2 record against the Barons.
Oklahoma City (38-24-8) had a great chance to tie Friday’s game, when the Checkers were called for delay of game with 1:40 left in the third period. Despite a 6-on-4 manpower advantage, after pulling goaltender Laurent Brossoit for an extra attacker, Charlotte (29-35-7) hung on for the win.
Oklahoma City (37-21-8) is winless in its last five games, although the previously short-handed Barons added wingers David Ling, Jason Pitton and Brett Lyon to an injury-depleated roster. Ling made an immediate impact, scoring the first goal of the game 7:06 into the first period.
