JEEP LIBERTY GIVEAWAY NIGHT

For the first time all season the Barons wore their new royal blue jerseys, a throwback look to the Edmonton Oilers' Wayne Gretzky glory days. ... Knowing the Thunder was playing its home opener across Reno Avenue, one woman brought a sign that read: “I'd like to see KD (Kevin Durant) do that.”
