The finals are here, and they begin Friday the 24th in Grand Rapids. For those unaware, the Griffins seemed to be solidly in charge against the Toronto Marlies in the quarterfinals, stumbled a bit, but then resurrected in the third period of Game 6 to advance to the Finals. This one will be interesting simply because Grand Rapids is playing some mighty fine offensive hockey right now, and they are a swarming offense. Things likely to give Yann Danis and the defensive core of the Barons a workout. Full preview on its way.
