GERBER, PENALTY KILL STOPS MANITOBA

By Jim Byers, on 12/04/2010

Martin Gerber made 37 saves and the Barons killed all seven Manitoba power plays, including a pair of two-man advantages, in Saturday's 4-0 win over the Moose at MTS Centre in Winnipeg.

The Barons scored twice in the second period and twice in the third. Matt Marquardt opened the scoring with a long-range shot at 8:06 of the second. Ryan O'Marra followed with his first goal of the season, converting a Linus Omark centering pass at 17:28 of the second. Omark had a three-point game.

After stifling a two-man Manitoba advantage early in the third, Omark flipped in his 13th of the season on a breakaway against Eddie Lack to make the score 3-0 at 13:58. Alex Giroux completed the scoring with a wrap-around at 16:51 of the third to snap a 14-game drought without a goal.

Manitoba out-shot Oklahoma City 37-34 as the teams split a weekend series. Oklahoma City improved to 14-8-1-2, while the Moose fell to 12-8-0-3. The Barons wrap up a five-game trip with a record of 2-2-0-1. They return home to face the Houston Aeros Tuesday at 7:05 at the Cox Center.
