11/13 GDT: Milwaukee @ Grand Rapids

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Milwaukee Admirals (6-5-0-2) @ Grand Rapids Griffins (9-4-0-0)
7:00 pm EST

Tonight's Player in focus: Dick Axelsson

Considered to be one of Detroit's top offensive prospects, Dick has made an impressive start to his North American career as he is 2-3-5 in 10 games. He's been unlucky not to have a lot more points as his strong play has often been unrewarded. He will only improve as the season wears on. In the inaugural player in focus, Pare recorded two assists.


The Grand Rapids Griffins will search for their 9th consecutive win when they met the struggling Milwaukee Admirals. Kris Newbury has been in red hot form and he has a point in the past 6 games, and Jakub Kindl is picking up after a slow start to the season as he has 5 points in 6 games.

Jeremy Williams is on a 3 game goal streak and he leads the team with 8 goals on the season. Thomas McCollum is likely to get the start tonight unless Larsson is sent back to Grand Rapids but that is unlikely to occur. McCollum missed the previous game with a bruised hand so fingers crossed he is fit and ready to play.

Projected lines:

Ritola - Newbury - Mursak
Axelsson - Rismiller - Williams
Tatar - McGrath - Tardif
Vigilante - Emmerton - Pare


Kolosov - Kindl
Crosty - Pyett
Janik - Delmore

(Piche, Ehrhardt)


Individual Leaders:

Goals: Williams (8), Tardif (5)
Assists: Newbury (8), Kindl (6)
Points: Newbury (11), Williams (9), Emmerton (8)
PIM: Newbury (58), Crosty (53)
Plus/Minus: Emmerton (+9), Janik (+6), Pare (+5)

It seems like I am busy during every griffins game. :( I should be home for hopefully the 3rd period though and if its a good game I will see the replay.

Also how can Vig-Emmerton-Pare be the 4th line after the game a few nights ago?!

Down 2-1 to start the 3rd. C'mon lads.

To anyone watching, uk_redwing, don't you agree that Ritola is awesome? Strong on the puck, makes good passes and is playing more physical than ever before.

Stream is being a ***** for me so Im not watching :(

Yeah stream is normally perfect but tonight it was having a few issues so I eventually gave up also.

Griffins won in OT 3-2! :siren: Another come from behind victory.

What I like about this team is that they have so many players who can contribute. Janik had a goal and assist and was +2 tonight, along with the games 1st star.

Tatar had an assist and Pyett and Emmerton assisted on the game winner.

9 in a row!
