A crowd of 2,320 donated more than $16,000, which was matched by Express family of companies, owned by the Funk family, including Barons' owner Bob Funk Jr. The Funk family raised the final total to $50,000.

During pregame ceremonies, Barons officials honored first responders from the recent tornadoes and lit 26 candles at center ice to honor the 26 people that lost their lives.


If the Barons win the best-of-7 Western Conference final, they will play in the AHL finals against the winner of Syracuse-Scranton/Wilkes-Barre. Syracuse added an empty goal for a 2-0 win Wednesday night in Game 3 to lead the Eastern Finals series 2-1.

If Syracuse wins the series, and the Barons advance, the AHL finals would start with Games 1 and 2 in Syracuse.

If the Penguins win the series, and the Barons advance, the AHL finals would start with Games 1 and 2 in OKC.


Both teams' penalty killing units have been near perfect in the series. The Barons are 1-of-11 on the power play, Grand Rapids' 0-of-9. ... Taylor Fedun had a goal waved off early for a high stick shot off a rebound. ... Similar to the regular season on Friday night, Game 4 will be $1 hot dogs and $2 beers.
