“It seems like the last 14 games in a row, we've played against 14 of the most-disciplined teams in the league,” Barons coach Todd Nelson said.
The last time the Barons managed just one power-play chance was March 2, a 4-2 loss at Peoria.
*1. Tom McCollum, Grand Rapids: McCollum stopped 43 of the Barons' 44 shots, including all 22 in the third. He entered with a 3.71 goals against average and stopping just 88 percent of the shots he faced.
*2. Joakim Andersson, Grand Rapids: Andersson scored the Griffins' first goal on a power play, then assisted on Fracis Pare's goal in the third period that all but clinched the win.
*3. Chris Minard, Grand Rapids: Minard netted the eventual game-winner, scoring 4:10 into the third on a blast from the point. He then assisted on an empty-net goal in the final two minutes.
