Grand Rapids Griffins

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — The Grand Rapids Griffins are done for the season.

They lost the deciding Game 5 Monday to the Manitoba Moose in the first round of the Calder Cup Playoffs.

The Moose scored first, but the Griffins tied it up before the end of the first period. But it was all Moose after they scored again late in the second. They went on to put away three more unanswered shots in the third.

The final score at Van Andel Arena was 5-1.

The Griffins were hoping for a repeat of last year’s playoff run, which won them the Calder Cup championship.
