Griffins gameday report

The Griffins will welcome the defending Calder Cup champion Cleveland Monsters into town for the second time this season. The Griffins took the first game back on October 22 by a final of 3-2.

Over the weekend the Griffins split their weekend games beating Iowa 4-1 and losing to Chicago 4-2. The Griffins will be without forward Tyler Bertuzzi. Bertuzzi was called up by the Red Wings on Monday and made his NHL debut last night against the Flyers in a 3-2 shootout win. That Red Wings victory marked the first win in Philadelphia since 1997. Bertuzzi was on a line with Dylan Larkin and Frans Nielsen. Bertuzzi had 9:57 of ice time, one shot one goal, and finished the game with a +1.

Rookies Mike Borkowski and Dominic Turgeon will be back in the lineup tonight. Jared Coreau will make his 9th start of the season.
