And after losing two in SoCal last week, the Barracuda hope to turn the tables as they host the Reign in NorCal. The Reign have a 8-0-1-0 record on the line in San Jose.
The Barracuda arrived home early Sunday. Got on the ice for practice on Monday and Tuesday.
The Barracuda are hoping to (finally) get that 637th win for Coach Sommer, at home, against the best team in the league. Torres expected to make his Barracuda home debut.

Dell in nets. Made 50 saves (52 SOG) — most saves in AHL this season. Goals from Lerg, Young, Goodrow and Smith. Barracuda were 2 for 3 on PP, and notched insurance goal short handed.
So, FINALLY, Coach Roy Sommer notches win 637, setting new AHL wins mark that had stood for 72 years.
Reign lost Gravel and Budaj to call ups; emergency 34 year-old goalie backed up. Houser starting. And even congratulated Sommer on his record.
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.)

With Lerg, McCarthy (and Mueller) in NHL, it’s a leadership vacuum? And a scoring deficit?
Sigh. Another loss, another game devoid of goals.

Sharks return from their long road trip to a two-game home stand. (Then road, home, 2 for the road to finish out the regular season.)
Niemi is recovering from an apparent cold, so Stalock may get the start. Tarasov has been returned to Worcester. Brown is close to returning. Mueller out for the season with a thumb injury (unclear if he might be healed for World Championships). Vlasic is day-to-day with lower body injury (but out for Wednesday).
Reto Berra announced as starter for Avalanche.
