GAMEDAY: @ Grand Rapids 3/2

@     

Who: Grand Rapids Griffins

Where: Van Andel Arena

When: 7:00 p.m.

Last Game: Sunday at home against Hershey, the Penguins won 3-2. Adam Johnson’s goal at 10:06 of the third period was enough to hold up against the Bears. Casey DeSmith stopped 22 of 24 shots. For Grand Rapids, the Griffins hosted the Tucson Roadrunners on Wednesday and also won 3-2. Ex-Penguins led the way for the Griffins against the Roadrunners. Ben Street had a goal and an assist and Eric Tangradi led the way with a pair of goals.

Record: For WBS: 32-16-4-1 (69 pts., 2nd place Atlantic Division) // For GR: 31-19-1-6 (69 pts., 2nd place Central Division)

Referee(s): Jesse Gour / Stephen Thomson

Linesmen: Justin Cornell / Pat Richardson

Why You Should Care: Big test for both teams unfamiliar with the other on similar tracks. Both teams have identical points and are chasing down a division leader heading into the weekend are out of touch at this point in time. A win tonight keeps pace. Should be a good, competitive hockey game against two very good teams.

Other Game to Watch: Charlotte and Providence meet up in a battle between the three and four seeds in the Atlantic Division.

Next Five Games: @ RFD 3/3, @ MIL 3/4, @ BNG 3/9, vs. GR 3/10, @ CHA 3/13
