Barons captain Josh Green has started a program called Green's Gang. For the remainder of the season, Green will welcome a child and family that's facing difficult medical conditions. The first child honored was ProCure Proton Therapy Center pediatric brain tumor patient Ali Mustafa, who attended Tuesday's game with family members.
The Barons close out a three-game homestand with games Friday and Saturday night against Milwaukee. It will be the first two meetings between the Barons and Admirals.
After the game, official scorers credited Hartikainen with a tip-in goal. The goal originally was given to Eberle. ... The Barons have loaned defenseman Dan Ringwald to Stockton of the ECHL. Ringwald, who signed a free-agent deal with OKC, recorded zero points in six games. ... Veteran defenseman Alex Plante was minus-2 in Tuesday's loss and is a team worst minus-6 for the season.
