Barons put Rampage away in OT…again

Jujhar Khaira banged home a rebound 5:01 into overtime to propel Oklahoma City into the second round with a 2-1 win in San Antonio on Wednesday night.

The Barons’ 16th overtime win of the season finished off a three-game sweep of the Rampage.

On a Barons rush, Mitch Moroz found Matthew Ford with room in the slot, but Ford’s shot from in close went wide and found the end glass. A lively ricochet went to the rookie Khaira stationed at the near post, and he tucked it in before Dan Ellis could get across.

Game 3 was scoreless until Kellen Jones put the Barons on the board with 1:09 to play in the second period, whacking a rebound of a Ford shot past Ellis for his first of the playoffs.

Oklahoma City appeared headed for a regulation victory until Dylan Olsen finished off a scramble with a snap shot from the left circle that beat Richard Bachman with 58.3 seconds left in regulation.

Bachman (2-0) made 35 saves in his first start of the series, and stopped 51 of 52 Rampage shots after coming on in relief during Game 2.

Ellis (0-2) returned to the crease after missing Game 2 and finished with 36 stops in the loss.
