Griffins Outlast Marlies in 5-4 Win
Griffins Outlast Marlies in 5-4 Win Home team takes 2-1 lead in best of seven series... By Jason Kasiorek www.griffinscentral.com May 15th, 2013 Grand Rapids got out to an early lead, but had to outlast several Toronto rallies to hold on for an exciting 5-4 win. Almquist (3) and Hoggan (2) staked the Griffins to a 2-0 lead in the first 6 minutes of the game before Hamilton answered for Toronto. Tatar (6) extended the lead to two again before Toronto tied it back up. Pare (2) and Mursak (3) restored the two goal cushion, but Ashton and a disallowed goal just about wiped it out again. Mrazek got the win despite a less than stellar outing stopping 16 of 20 shots.
