March 2013 Grand Rapids Griffins Report
Grand Rapids finds itself in unfamiliar territory, sitting in first place, playing out the last stretch of the season while waiting for the playoffs to start. One of the keys to this years' run has been a balanced scoring attack. The team could have as many as six 20 goal scorers and another five in double digits including two defensemen, rookies Adam Almquist and Chad Billins. The last time that happened for the Griffins was 2005-06, a year which saw the team advance to the third round of the Calder Cup Playoffs before injuries and a lack of depth derailed them.
