Starting tonight, the Griffins have three games in as many nights, all on the road. They play Oklahoma City in back to back games both tonight and Saturday, and then finish against Houston. The Griffins are coming off a 3-0 road win against Hamilton, Joey MacDonald got the shutout, whilst Nyquist and Conner both extended their point streaks to 4 games.

Mitchell Callahan has been suspended for four games, while Landon Ferraro is out indefinitely with a concussion. Defenceman Travis Ehrhardt is out with an injured shoulder. Thankfully for the Griffins, Brendan Smith is back in the line-up, while rookie Andre Nestrasil will make his AHL debut.

The lines will be as follows:

Nyquist - Andersson - Conner
Tatar - Johnson - Pare
Parkes - Raedeke - Coetzee
Estoclet - Aubry - Nestrasil

Janik - Smith
Exelby - Lashoff
Pyett - Amadio

MacDonald
Pearce

He's definitely been injury prone, but a concussion is just bad luck.

Anyway, the undermanned Griffins lost 4-1 tonight. Conner kept his streak alive by scoring, assisted by Exelby and Pare. Tatar had a team high 5 shots, Aubry was next best with 4. Aubry was also out there when the Barons scored an EN goal, so I take it Aubry impressed. That's one positive to take from this game.

Wow, what a great goal by the Griffins. Nyquist skates into the offensive zone, but falls. While on the ice, he still makes a play by sliding the puck to Nestrasil. Nestrasil holds onto the puck, and passes it across to Nyquist who is back up and in position. Nyquist then passes again to Nestrasil who is driving to the net, and as he does he slides a nifty pass across to Raedeke who puts it home. Griffins 1-0. :thumbup:

Aubry then dominates for two shifts, almost scores, and then Brule (who had previously fought Piche) decided he'd have another go, but this time he loses the plot and gives up a 4 minute penalty.

Griffins PP. Andersson wins the faceoff, Nestrasil whips the puck back to Smith. Smith hands on, then shoots, a big rebound comes and Nestrasil who had driven to the net after the pass slams it home. Griffins 2-0.

Nestrasil, Nyquist, Aubry= exciting.

Brendan Smith just got into a fight, and won. :thumbup:

Nyquist's speed is impressive, as is Aubry's hustle and physicality.
