Griffins Rally Past Marlies for 4-1 Win
The Marlies got the first goal of the game on a shot that Petr Mrazek would probably like back. The rookie netminder would not let another puck past him and out-dueled Griffins nemesis Drew MacIntyre for a 4-1 win and a 3-1 series lead. Landon Ferraro and Tomas Jurco each added a goal and an assist in the win, while captain Jeff Hoggan and Jan Mursak added empty net goals to seal the win. Grand Rapids put 36 shots on the Marlies net, while Mrazek stopped 17 of 18 for the win.
