Petr Mrazek makes 32 saves for Grand Rapids in 1-0 victory over Abbotsford

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Petr Mrazek made 32 saves for a shutout as the Grand Rapids Griffins edged the Abbotsford Heat 1-0 in American Hockey League play Saturday.

Adam Almquist scored the lone goal for Grand Rapids (26-14-4) in the final minute of the first period.

After that the Griffins' offence died and the team relied on Mrazek to survive being outshot 13-4 and 13-6 in the second and third periods, respectively.

Danny Taylor meanwhile stopped 22 shots for the Heat (23-15-7).

Both teams went scoreless on four power-play opportunities apiece.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
