Preview:

The 3rd last Griffins are at home to the last place San Antonio Rampage. It will be a big oppertunity for the Griffins to begin their 5 game home stand with a win.

Rookie blueliner Gleason Fournier is expected to make his AHL debut.

Possible line-up:

Conner - Johnson - Pare
Nyquist - Andersson - Tatar
Parkes - Raedeke - Ferraro
Oslund - Aubry - Callahan

Janik - Lashoff
Exelby - Fournier
Pyett - Amadio

Pearce
McCollum

Team leaders:

Goals: Johnson (7), Conner (6)
Assists: Conner (13), Nyquist (10)
Point: Conner (19), Nyquist (14), Johnson(10)
PIMS: Exelby (44), Amadio (43), Callahan (32)
Plus/Minus: Conner, Janik (+5)

Griffins down 2-0 after 15 minutes.

Jordan Pearce pulled already, so now it's McCollum's turn.

In just 9 minutes of duty, McCollum's faced 11 shots and saved them all.

The Griffins hit back wit a PP goal from defenceman Gleason Fournier, who is making his AHL debut. Assists to Tatar and McCollum.

Griffins lose 5-4 in OT.

Andersson with 2 goals.
Tatar with 2 assists.
Nyquist with 2 assists.

Good game by our prospects, but the team continues to underperform. McCollum played well, the defence didn't.

Totally. They should be a LOT better than they are. To me the defence is the weak point, firstly they are weak defensively, but they are also terrible at breakout passes which means the forwards have to do all the work. Don't get me started on the coaching though...

You and I are totally on the same page. After watching another 3-1 debacle tonight, I am firmly believing that they need a coaching change. Its obvious that our current coach can't get enough out of this team.
