Captain Power had been absent for the last three matches as he served out his suspension following a straight red card at Cambridge United, where the Imps lost 1-0.
Barnet headed in to the match on the back of a 2-1 defeat at Halifax Town AFC.
Lincoln City made an inroad as early as the first minute when Jake Sheridan stole the ball off the foot of a defender and almost steered an effort on target.
Barnet did not make an effort until 20 minutes when Marc Byrne tried a long range effort that went over Paul Farman's bar and over the terrace.
The Bees did look deadly on the counter and on 30 minutes they sliced the City defence wide open. Keanu Marsh-Brown raced down right flank, but he went for goal and shot wide under pressure from Tom Miller.
Hyde then had Barnet's next best effort, but he was still restricted from the edge of the area and shot wide of Farman.
Lincoln had their best chance in the final moments of the first half. Mo Fofana did brilliantly to pass the ball to Tomlinson on the right-hand side. His low cross fell to Power, who tried an overhead effort that just went over the crossbar.
