Road Woes: After scoring the game’s first goal on Friday but falling to the surging Bakersfield Condors, 3-1, the Barracuda had a 3-2 third-period lead in Ontario on Sunday before the Reign answered with a pair of late goals to steal the 4-3 win. The Barracuda have now lost a season-high three consecutive games but still hold the AHL’s second-best winning percentage (26-11-2-4 = .674). On Friday, Antti Suomela netted the game’s first goal but three middle-frame tallies from Bako proved too much as the Barracuda fell 3-1. In the loss, Josef Korenar allowed three goals on 25 shots. On Sunday, San Jose and Ontario traded goals after the Barracuda took a 2-1 lead in the first and despite San Jose putting a franchise-record 55 shots on net, Ontario found a way to equal the score off the stick of veteran Brett Sutter and then Sam Herr gave the Reign a 4-3 lead with less than a minute to go. Antoine Bibeau took the hard-luck loss after allowing four goals on 37 shots.

Mini-Mart: On Sunday, Jon Martin potted his ninth goal of the season. Through 34 games this year, Martin has already surpassed his goal, point and assist totals he had amassed in his first 60 career AHL games. Martin is seventh on the Barracuda in scoring (19), T-fifth in goals (9), fourth in plus/minus (+14), third in PIMs (46), and eighth in shooting percentage (13.2%).


Dazzling Dezzy: On Sunday, sophomore d-man Nick DeSimone collected a pair of helpers and is now T-third on the Barracuda in points (28), T-seventh in goals (8), third in assists (20) and T-second in power-play goals (3). DeSimone Is currently riding a four-game point streak (one goal, four assists), the longest such streak of his career. DeSimone is T-14th among all AHL defenseman in points.


Backstop Bullies: San Jose’s goalie combo of Josef Korenar and Antoine Bibeau have combined for the AHL’s best goals-against average (2.50) and second-best save percentage (.914). The 20-year-old rookie Korenar is T-first in the AHL in GAA (2.28), T-third in SV% (.920), T-fifth in wins (16), and T-second in shutouts (3). Bibeau is T-12th in the league in GAA (2.63) and is 12th in SV% (.913).


Frank the Tank: Acquired from the Ottawa Senators in the Erik Karlsson trade, third-year pro Francis Perron is second on the Barracuda in points (32), first in goals (14), T-fourth in assists (17), first in power-play goals (7), first in shooting percentage (21.4%), second in game-winning goals (3), and first in multi-point games (8).
