PREVIEW:

The Grand Rapids Griffins will be looking for their first home win of the season when they host the Oklahoma City Barons. The Griffins sit 2nd in the North Division with 9 points from 7 games, Oklahoma City meanwhile have played a league high 10 games and have gained 11 points, good for fourth in the West Division. Leading the Griffins is 22 year old forward Jan Mursak who leads the Griffins with 4 goals and 7 points and shares the league lead with 2 SH goals. Rookie Brent Raedeke is coming off a strong two goal game, as is Ilair Filppula.

Thomas McCollum is expected to get the start with Joey MacDonald likely to still be in Detroit as cover for Jimmy Howard. Defenceman Logan Pyett has missed five straight games through injury and if he still hasn't recovered, Sebastian Piche may step in. Good oppertunity this for the Griffins to record consecutive victories and their first win in front of their home crowd.

POSSIBLE LINE-UP:

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

Meech - Smith
Kolosov - Pyett
Amadio - Lashoff

The Griffins lost in a shoot-out last night, 5-4.

1. GR Mursak, (5) (Emmerton, Filppula), 5:01
1. GR Tardif, (1) (Tatar), 13:25
2. GR Filppula, (4) (Smith, Amadio), 18:08
3. GR Smith, (3) (Ehrhardt), 18:53

Smith secured a point by scoring with 67 seconds left. Mursak's point streak now at 5 games, Filppula with 9 points in 8 games and Smith with 8.

Griffins play again tonight against Manitoba and are still searching for their first home win.
