Preivew:

The Griffins travel to the Rockford MetroCentre to take on the Rockford IceHogs in the second game of the season. They lost the chance to claim maximum points in their home opener when Abbotsford tied it up with less than 2 minutes remaining before eventually winning in the SO. MacDonald was the starter and McCollum is expected to see his first game this evening.

For the Griffins, Ilari Filppula made an impressive AHL debut with a pair of assists, while rookie Willie Coetzee showed off some impressive speed and hands. Jan Mursak and Cory Emmerton displayed some chemistry on the top line, and the all veteran line of Filppula, Johnson and Minard combined for 4 points. The defensive pairings are unlikely to change for tonight's game, disappointing for Kolosov who needs all the ice-time he can manage this season.


Possible line-up:

Pare - Emmerton - Mursak
Minard - Johnson - Filppula
Tatar - Andersson - Coetzee
Owens - Raedeke - Tardif

Janik - Smith
Lashoff - Meech
Amadio - Pyett

(Kolosov/Ehrhardt/Piche)

McCollum
MacDonald

Team Leaders:

Goals: Smith, Johnson (1)
Assists: Filppula (2), Meech, Minard (1)
Points: Filppula (2), 4 tied (1)
+/-: 4 tied (+1)
PIM's: Amadio (5), Meech (4)

Any streams for this one?

Why can't Kolosov crack the lineup? This is supposed to be his break out year. Who is this Amadio guy? Was he from the CHL last year and made it on a tryout?

Griffins lost 5-4 in regulation. <_<

At least some of our prospects had bright games:

Mursak: G+A
Smith: 2A
Tatar: 2A
Emmerton: G

I'm glad Kolosov played, but at the expense of Lashoff? Geez Fraser, c'mon...

Armadio actually started his career in 2001-02 with the Griffins. He bounced around the AHL after leaving the team, and was a part of the back-to-back Hershey Bears Calder Cups last year and the year before. Because of his 'veteran' status and the AHL's rules on veterans, there was no room for him in Hershey this year - so he's back.

hey guys, havent caught the first 2 games. how has coetzee looked? he could still go back to the chl as an overager right? has it ever been stated if he is there to stay?

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.
