The Griffins slow start to the season hasn't gotten any better in the last few weeks with just one win in their last 8 games.

In their last three losses the Griffins were outscored 13-4 and now their 13 regulation losses are the 2nd most in the American Hockey League.

"I think we've done a lot of talking, a lot of 'rah-rahing', but now it's time as a team to bury our heads and let our play do the talking," said forward Eric Tangradi.
