Griffins Double Up Barons in Game One
Two offensive juggernaut's combined to turn in a defensive battle that ended with the barest of margins, a 2-1 Griffins victory. Most of the contest was played at a scorching pace as both teams sized up the opposition in what looks to be a long series. Brennan Evans opened the scoring with his first goal since February, 2012, and Landon Ferraro (3) cashed in on a steal by Tomas Jurco for the game-winner. Petr Mrazek stopped 27 of 28 shots for his 8th win of the playoffs.
