On the SJ Barracuda podcast with Marko:

#1 Despite the AHL lifting the 30 game suspension which San Jose Barracuda forward Krystof Hrabik served 28 games, Hrabik is not expected back at the Barracuda and most likely for the rest of the season. Hrabik during a game against the Tucson Roadrunners made racist gestures to Roadrunners  Boko Imama who is African Canadian. It’s pretty easy to predict that the reason for not bringing Hrabik back is because he’s pretty toxic after what he did in the Jan 12th.

#2 It was too early in the morning Wednesday as the San Jose Barracuda (20-34-2) just couldn’t wake up against the visiting Ontario Reign (36-14-4) after giving up three goals in the first period on Classroom day at the SAP Center that featured a 10:30 AM start.

#3 The Barracuda have now lost five straight after losing Ontario 6-3. The Barracuda have suffered on both sides on the puck on defense and offense.

#4 Evan Weinger scored his 12th goal of the season and scored two points in his last three games. Weinger set a single season high in goals, assists and points.

#5 The Barracuda are in Stockton tonight. The Barracuda lost all four of their meeting with the Heat in March. Here it is April can the Barracuda win one at least one of the two remaining games tonight or Sunday?
