BARONS CLINCH WEST DIVISION REGULAR SEASON TITLE

By Josh Evans, OKC Barons

Just two days after punching their ticket to the postseason, the Oklahoma City Barons added the West Division regular season title to their list of accolades for the 11-12 campaign.  By way of the San Antonio Rampage’s 1-0 loss to the Peoria Rivermen, the Barons clinched the West Division regular season title.

The Oklahoma City Barons record of 42-19-4-5 is the best in the Western Conference.  They own a four-point lead over the Toronto Marlies for that distinction.  The Barons have six games left to play, while the Marlies have five.

Playoff tickets for the Barons home playoff games will go on sale Monday morning at the Barons office at 232-GOAL (4625).  The Barons playoff schedule will be released pending the outcome of all the seeding in the Western Conference.

The Barons return home to take on the Hamilton Bulldogs, AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens, Tuesday.  The weekend concludes with home games Friday and Saturday.  Friday, the Barons tangle with the Peoria Rivermen, AHL affiliate of the St. Louis Blues.  Saturday, the Chicago Wolves, AHL affiliate of the Vancouver Canucks, visit Oklahoma City.  All three games start at 7 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center.  All three games can be heard on the Barons flagship station, 96.1 KXY.
