FLAMES SAY OKC-YA LATER IN 3-1 VICTORY OVER BARONS

Oklahoma City, OK – The Adirondack Flames got back on track with a 3-1 victory over the Oklahoma City Barons at the Cox Convention center in Oklahoma City.

Michael Ferland, Max Reinhart and Garnet Hathaway found the back of the net for the Flames, who moved to within two points of eight place in the Western Conference with the win. Goaltender Brad Thiessen made 22 saves to earn the victory, his sixth of the season.

It was the Flames who opened the scoring this evening, as Michael Ferland buried a rebound from the left hand circle to make it 1-0. Defenseman Sena Acolatse collected his ninth point over his past eight games with the primary assist, as his original point shot was kicked away by Brossoit, right into the path of Ferland, who finished for the goal. Tyler Wotherspoon also collected an assist on the play, his sixth over his past five games played.

The Barons used their lethal power play to knot the score at one, however, as winger Curtis Hamilton buried his eleventh goal of the season. Oklahoma City forward Kellen Jones disrupted an Adirondack clearing attempt, which caused the puck to redirect to Hamilton in the high slot. The Tacoma, WA native fired a slapshot over Thiessen’s blocker hand to tie the score 11:24 into the game. The assist for Jones was his first in his past nine games.

The visitors claimed another lead just 3:46 into the second period as Max Reinhart converted a breakaway on Brossoit to make it 2-1. A heads up pass from Flames defenseman Mark Cundari hit Reinhart in behind the Barons defense and the center would not miss for his eighth goal of the season. The helper for Cundari was his sixth point over his past five games played.

The Flames added their third of the night as Garnet Hathaway sealed off a strong weekend with an empty net goal. After Wotherspoon flipped the puck into the neutral zone, Drew Shore forced a turnover and got the puck to Turner Elson, who fed Hathaway. The Brown University product then went to the backhand for the goal, his eleventh tally of the season.

The Flames are back in action Friday night versus the pesky Utica Comets, scheduled for 7:00 p.m. from the Utica Memorial Auditorium. Adirondack next returns to the Glens Falls Civic Center a week from tomorrow on Saturday, February 28, against the Toronto Marlies in a 7:00 p.m. puck drop. Saturday’s game will be a post-game jersey auction, as the Flames will wear special, Calgary Flames themed third jerseys.
