Horrible commentary through this whole thing. Wish I could have had our boys instead of homers.

Wow.
Crazy game.
The Crunch only lose 1 out of 12 on their way to the CCF and the Griffs beat them 2 straight in Syracuse to start the series.

 

The team, who comprised last year's AHL Champion Admirals, had gone 27-4 over the last two playoffs going into this year's Finals. Impressive to do what they did in Syracuse's building.

 

Here's hoping the Griffins can keep it up.

Wanted to say with all the boys being sent down I thought it would hurt the chemistry of the GR's team.

 

I guess it hasn't and for good reason.

 

Impressive

 

I mean they played a large portion of the season with GR, minus Dekeyser

What's the ticket situation like in Grand Rapids? Will it be sold out? Is it worth the 5-hour drive, or will I be left out in the cold?

I'm sure it was a big boost to get Nyquist, DeKeyser and Andersson.

 

 

Griffs were down and struggling against a powerful Oaklahoma team when the boys returned to the team and sparked  turn around.  That prompted one writer to dub them (Andy & Nyq reuniting w/ Tatar) "The Just In Time Line".

 

I can't figure out the color analyst; apparently he's a forward for the Crunch?  Injured?  He sounds just like Maltby.  He plays the "embellishment" card on damn near every Crunch penalty.  Whatever.

 

The hometown announcers aren't too bad until they start questioning Jurco's backhand goal, trying to say that their bad angle, super fuzzy and grainy replay shows a better view of the goal than the referee's overhead angle replay.  The angle was behind and to the right of center, and the video was more fuzzy than the picture of Saskquatch.

The playoffs have not yet had a sell out, though, they've definitely had sell outs this year. I bought tickets this afternoon and there was a line in the middle of the day - which I'm not used to. Anyway, the guy behind the ticket counter said this Friday's game might well sell out.

Fairly positive. The Van Andel holds 10,000 and some change. A couple of games I went to were real close if not officiall sell outs. I could be wrong, though.

That said, playoff attendance has been way, way down. Hopefully fans come out for the Finals, though.

It's too bad attendance is low because the cost of a lower bowl ticket is cheap compared to an upper bowl seat at the Joe and you're seeing baby Red Wings.

 

If I live in GR I'd definitely be a season ticket holder.

Wow, seats on the glass for 35 bucks in the Finals. Awesome. Too bad that arena management has apparently disenfranchised the fans.

Griffins hockey sucks now compared to ten years ago because of the management. There's a reason shy fan counts are low.

Hm. I didn't live here 10 years ago so I guess I'll never know. That sucks, though. I just assumed its because they've had lackluster teams the past few years and just a general lack of interest.

We'll that could be part of it as well. But things have changed a lot.

This MLive article says that tonight's game will likely push 9,000 fans and Friday's should sell out. So I'd buy your tickets in advance.
