The Lake Erie Monsters returned to Oklahoma City on Tuesday, three days after starting their current six-game, nine-day road trip with a 4-3 loss there. The Monsters were dealt another loss by the Barons Tuesday night, this time by a 3-0 score.  Lake Erie is now 2-2-0-1.

The game was the third straight loss and first shutout of the season for Lake Erie. It was also the first game of the Monsters season that was decided by more than one goal.

The Monsters were playing their third game in four days, while Tuesday's matchup was the fourth for the Barons in the the past five days.

The Barons controlled the offense in the first period, putting up 12 shots on goal compared to just seven from the Monsters. Yet neither team was able to score in the opening 20 minutes.

Shawn Belle quickly changed that after the intermission, scoring just 1:22 into the second period on the power play. Brad Moran and Alexandre Giroux assisted.

Oklahoma City make it a 2-0 game at the 12:00 mark of the middle frame off a goal by Liam Reddox, helped by Richard Petiot and Ryan O'Marra. The second would end with the Barons leading the Monsters, 2-0.

Lake Erie almost doubled Oklahoma City's shots in the third period, putting 16 attempts on net, as opposed to eight from the Barons. However, none were able to get by Barons goaltender Martin Gerber.

Giroux added an insurance goal midway through the third, pushing the Oklahoma lead to the final 3-0 advantage on another power play marker. Jeff Petry and Belle were credited with the helpers.

Despite outshooting the Barons 35-30 in the game, the Monsters allowed Oklahoma City to go 2-for-4 on the power play for the night. Monsters netminder Jason Bacashihua recorded 27 saves on 30 shots. Gerber was a perfect 35-for-35 between the pipes for the Barons.
