Philippe Cornet scored both goals Sunday, the first goal at 12:49 in the first period, assisted by O’Marra and House. The second goal, scored in the second, at 15:52 on a power play, was assisted by Keller and Green. At 18:33 in the first period, Ryan Keller was given the first Barons’ penalty shot of the season but was unable to score on Dennis Endras, who saved 14 of 16 shots on goal for the Houston Aeros.
