Barons rally to beat Wolves 5-2

December 7, 2013 - American Hockey League (AHL) - Oklahoma City Barons News Release

Roman Horak scored two goals, including the go-ahead marker with 4:08 remaining in regulation time, as the Oklahoma City Barons beat the Chicago Wolves 5-2 on Saturday at Allstate Arena in Rosemont, Ill.

The Barons (10-12-0-3) snap a two-game losing streak and improve to 1-1 in a season-high six-game road swing that continues at 3 pm CST Sunday with a rematch against the Wolves.

Chicago, 10-10-0-2, out-shot the Barons 41-23 and scrambled from a 1-0 deficit to take a 2-1 lead in the third period before the Barons rallied with an unassisted tying goal by Andrew Miller on a breakaway at 14:55. That was followed 57 seconds later by Horak's winner from the edge of the crease, set up by Brad Hunt and Derek Nesbitt.

Oklahoma City owns a 2-1 lead in the four-game season series with Chicago, which ends tomorrow.

Rookie goalie Ty Rimmer, making his third AHL appearance, second start and first as a Baron, stopped 39 of 41 shots in earning his first AHL win. Jake Allen stopped 18 of 21 shots in falling to 9-6-2. The Barons' final two goals, one by Horak and the other by Matthew Ford, were into an empty net with Allen replaced by an extra skater.

The Barons opened the scoring on the power play at 6:34 of the first period. Miller brought the puck most of the way up ice and fed Hunt, who stepped down from the blue line and snapped one past Jake Allen on the stick side. Miller, Hunt and Ford all recorded a goal and an assist.

Chicago climbed back with a tying goal at 4:27 of the third on a tip by Sergey Andronov. Chicago took its only lead of the game at 7:59 when Pat Cannone put a rebound past Rimmer's glove for a 2-1 lead.

The Barons proceeded to tally the final four goals to snap a four-game road winless drought and improve to 4-7-0-2 on the road.
