Barons' Run In OKC Ends With Loss To Utica

Posted: Updated:

The Oklahoma City Barons fell 1-0 to the Utica Comets Wednesday night at the Utica Memorial Auditorium in the seventh and final game of the Western Conference Semifinals series, ending Oklahoma City's 2015 Calder Cup Playoffs run.

The game's lone goal was scored in the third period, when Alexandre Grenier pushed the rebound of a Travis Ehrhardt shot past Barons goaltender Richard Bachman at 7:11 of the frame.

Bachman finished the game with 39 saves, while Utica goalie Jacob Markstrom stopped all 35 shots he faced. Bachman finishes the postseason in a tie with Providence's Malcom Subban for the highest save percentage of the playoffs at .953. Subban played in two games before Providence was eliminated.

Despite holding the second-highest power play percentage in this year's playoffs, Oklahoma City was held scoreless on three power play chances.

With the win, Utica moves on to the Western Conference Finals round, where they will face the Grand Rapids Griffins in a best-of-seven series for the opportunity to represent the Western Conference in the Calder Cup Finals.

Oklahoma City's playoff run ended with a 6-4 record after a three-game sweep of San Antonio in the quarterfinal round and a 3-4 record against Utica in the semis.
