January 2013 Grand Rapids Griffins Report
As the Rockford IceHogs found out, the Grand Rapids Griffins will not be intimidated. A mid-month tilt between the two teams produced an AHL season high number of penalty minutes and suspensions brought on by the IceHogs thuggery and a resulting bench clearing brawl. The Griffins definitely came out on the losing end of a lot of the violence, but the players that remained regrouped and finished an 11 goal thumping on Rockford to take the win. The scoring surge gave Grand Rapids 42 goals in 12 games in January making them one of the highest scoring teams in the league.
