3. Hunter Tremblay, Barons

Tremblay all but sealed the game 8:36 into the third, taking a feed from Mark Arcobello to put the Barons ahead 2-0.

New defensemen shine

With parent club Edmonton recently raiding their defense, the Barons had to rely on a pair of newcomers — Mike Marcou and Martin Marincin — to step in during a critical stretch.

It was the second American Hockey League game for each — Marcou played in Milwaukee over the weekend and Marincin played one game with the Barons last year.

Nelson was pleased with both.

“Marty flew in today and hasn't skated in a week,” Nelson said. “He did a great job for us back there. He's still a kid and I'm sure he's going to start filling out. He's going to be a good player for this organization.”

Marcou had a couple scoring chances.

“Tonight as the game went on, you could see him getting more and more confident,” Nelson said.
