San Jose Barracuda podcast with Marko Ukalovic: It gets tougher after sweeping Grand Rapids, Cuda face off against Gulls in San Diego tonight photo: San Jose Barracuda defenseman Nick DeSimone (57) speaks with goaltender Antoine Bibeau (34) during a recent home game against the Grand Rapids Griffins. The Barracuda prepare to face the San Diego Gulls tonight.

On the Barracuda podcast with Marko:

#1 Marko, how important was it for the Barracuda (36-21-3) to come back on a team like the Grand Rapid Griffins (36-24-6) one goal down and come up with a win 5-4 in the home stretch before the postseason?

#2 The Rapids are one of the AHL’s toughest customers. This was the same team the Barracuda had to face when they went deep in the postseason last year.

#3 Luaks Radil, who scored the game-winner for San Jose, said that it was important to get the two wins over Grand Rapids this past weekend and important for the team to keep working like this.

#4 The Cuda line of Gambrell, Hensick and Chekhovich was the best offensive line this weekend as they were involved in three of the eight goals scored against Grand Rapids.

#5 Regular season isn’t over yet. The Barracuda are on the road tonight in San Diego, and the last time they met, the Gulls edged the Barracuda 4-3.
