Ask anyone who spent their Friday night at the Van Andel Arena in Grand Rapids and they will tell you the game was full of back and forth action. Neither team could catch a break and that’s what led the game to OT.
Captain Jeff Hoggan started the Griffs on the board with the first goal of the night and shortly after the Amerks bounced back with a goal to tie it up.
Second period and the Amerks score to take the lead followed by a Griffs goal scored by Scott Czarnowczan and another by Nathan Paetsch. Amerks score again to tie it up until Pulkkinen gets a snipe to take the lead 4-3 for the Griffs. Amerks tie it up one last time to put the game into overtime. Paetsch buries in deep in the net to finish the win in OT for the Griffs.
The boys were fired up after their win and lets hope they keep that fire tonight as they match up against the Rochester Americans tonight at 7pm!
