The Griffins are headed to the 2017 Calder Cup Finals! They’ll face off against the Syracuse Crunch (Tampa Bay’s AHL affiliate) starting Friday night in Grand Rapids. It’ll be a re-match of the 2013 Calder Cup Finals, when Grand Rapids won the cup in a 4-2 series victory and brought home their first championship.
It’s sure to be an exciting series, and if you’re in the majority of fans who can’t get to Grand Rapids, never fear! Thanks to the AHL, we can all watch streaming online for free, courtesy of AHL Live.
