The Grand Rapids Griffins won their 11th straight game this afternoon, a 4-0 shutout over the Chicago Wolves. This is the second time this season that the team has won 10 or more consecutive games, making them the second AHL team in the last 25 years to do so.
Over the course of the last 11 games, the Griffins have out-scored their opponents by a mind-blowing margin of 45-11.
Starting goaltender Jared Coreau, who is third in the AHL in goals against average (2.15), made 45 saves in today’s shutout. Martin Frk, the team leader in goals, buried two more today to give him 25 for the season. Anthony Mantha and Andy Miele also scored for Grand Rapids.
The Griffins won 15 straight games earlier this season, which set a franchise record.
Grand Rapids holds a record of 39-20-2, good for first place in the Central Division, and second in the Western Conference.
Next up on the schedule for the Griffins is a visit to the Texas Stars on Wednesday.
