Wednesday night OKC came out firing and beat the Bulldogs 5-2.

The team was back on the ice at practice Thursday and talked about how they are preparing for game five.

“We have one more here at home, tomorrow night and it’s a big game. Game five is always huge and it would be nice to get that win tomorrow night and then go back to Hamilton and have two shots to win the series,” said Barons head coach Todd Nelson.

“Tomorrow night is obviously a big game, so hopefully we can get the job done,” said Barons Right Wing Mark Arcobello.

“Hamilton is a team that can score at any given time. They are a hardworking team and so we have to make sure the guys that are playing in front of our goal tender are doing a good job of playing good team defense,” said Nelson.

“Tomorrow night is a pivotal game in the series and all we have to do is go out there and play the same way we have been playing and get big efforts out of certain individuals,” said Nelson.

ame five of the North Division Semi-Final is set for Friday evening at 7:05 p.m. at the Cox Convention Center.
