After sweeping in San Diego and losing in the SO at Bakersfield, the Barracuda travel on to Stockton for a Saturday game. This is their last game in California (PT zone) for a week. 2-1-1 through the first four games of their (multi-week/state) seven game road trip.
Minor line change on 4th, with Gallant replaced by McLaren in Friday’s practice. Parkes has his (external) stitches out, but continues to play with jaw protection. Appearances at practice are that Grosenick will start.
Heat celebrating Star Wars night. And they’re giving out youth jerseys to young fans.
Grosenick in nets; he made 49 saves. Barracuda actually got the lead early in the third. But the game was lost in the shootout (to cold backup goalie to had to come in when starter was injured after first round of shootout). And the Barracuda extend their point streak. (Sunday off; early morning Monday flight to east coast for final two games of road trip.)
