Griffins in Western Conference Finals


Griffins Rocket OT Winner


Grand Rapids Griffins Up 2-0

Teemu Pulkysnark scored two goals in a 5-1 beatdown over dem Rockford boys. Grand Rapids successfully defended it’s home ice to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the best of seven series. Off to Illinois.

Griffins Ride Hat Trick

Grand Rapids beat Rockford 5-3 in the opening game at Van Andel Arena. And we can thank the electric Teemu Pulkkinen and his three goals. We scored two minutes into the game and rode a 1-0 lead into the second period. After they tied it, Pulkkinen scored twice in three minutes to make it 3-1 […]

Griffins Storm Back

Down two games to zero in a best of five, Grand Rapids rallied for three straight wins to move on. We got Marchenko back on defense from the Red Wings, plus Teemu Pulkkinen, the leading goal scorer in the AHL playoffs (six). He led the league in goals during the regular season despite splitting time in […]

Nothing You Can Do About That

I can’t believe I watched the referees ruin another playoff game. As Darren Oliver stated after one period of play, “the reffing was atrocious.” Despite outplaying Tampa Bay with many more shots on goal, it stayed 0-0 for two periods. Try sustaining momentum with one dirty team allowed to poke and prod and then the […]


AFTER ALL THE HORSE SHIT the Red Wings have took against their goalie, among all the dirtiness Tampa Bay produced, WE GET THE SUSPENSION? That was a perfectly clean hit by Niklas Kronwall. This is a travesty, especially with the way they’ve been acting, undercutting Petr Mrazek’s legs. It was a good hit,” Babcock said. […]

Tale of Two Halves

It’s too bad Detroit dug themselves an early hole, otherwise we’d be celebrating in the Motor City. For now, we’ll wait ’til game seven. We trailed 3-0 after 30 minutes of play, then essentially worked a 2-0 score in our favor the rest of the way. Tampa changed nothing, meaning they stayed dirty once again. […]

Red Wings Blank Lightning for 3-2 Series Lead

Suck a big fat one you dirty ass mother fuckers! Detroit did not lose their composure after a late loss in game four. Instead, they battled Tampa Bay for sixty minutes AND WON. It ’twas 4-0 in the end.

Regroup, Red Wings

My Clippers are in the same boat, and I’m captaining it straight to the second round. Hop in.

Red Wings Claim Game Three

Justin Abdelkader returned from injury just in the nick of time, helping Detroit fight off some dirty play. You wouldn’t guess Stevie Y’s team would be so gay. But, they are. At one point in the third period, they took Petr Mrazek out from under his skates with a slash, and Abdelkader had seen enough. […]

Tough Day for Detroit

Rest up boys. Listen to and relax. Have a nice night.

Fuckin’ Red Wings

Petr Mrazek earned the start at goalie in game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. The Grand Rapids Griffin saved 44 shots – a new Red Wings record in a debut. Some of them were impractical, but he still made them. Seven penalties against us put Detroit at a constant disadvantage. Nonetheless, we fought through […]

Good Luck, Red Wings

Remember to fight hard and play together. It’s been a joy watching you skate this season, from the superior leadership at the top to our Grand Rapids Griffins supporting – LET’S GO GET IT!

Ending the Season Strong

The Red Wings shutout Carolina 2-0 to complete the 2014-15 regular season. Petr Mrazek saved all 35 shots he faced from the Hurricanes. Our Griffins really stepped up while some veterans rested. Grand Rapids’ Ferraro scored his first goal of his career to put us on the board early. It was pivotal, as the score […]

Red Wings Clinch Postseason

A point from overtime in Montreal means the Detroit Red Wings are going back to the Stanley Cup Playoffs. We battled our asses off to earn the birth. The Captain and The Assistant continued to take charge. Pavel Datsyuk set up Tomas Tatar for the first goal of the game. Henrik Zetterberg assisted Datsyuk to […]

One Step Closer

All the leaders of the Red Wings stepped up to make sure they beat the Carolina Hurricanes in our final home game of the season. We should be fine, but it has gotten tight towards crunch time in the Eastern Conference. This win puts us two points with two road games to go away from […]

Red Wings Go Hard in Shootout

Detroit picked up a huge point in Minnesota just by forcing overtime. That ended in a shootout, where Jimmy Howard was in net. Howard lasted eight rounds, making some sensational saves. He Supermanned one, and he stopped the first two to give us a chance to win it. Gustav Nyquist slid one through their goalie’s […]

Mike Babcock Let’s Media Have It

You think that because it’s the Detroit Sports Network and the writers work in the city, they might be in our corner. More so, you’d think, they wouldn’t turn on you just for the juicy headline or dramatic story. The Red Wings lost in a shootout tonight against the Senators, and you’d have thought someone […]
