Utah Grizzlies Update
The (IHL affiliate) Utah Grizzlies season record dropped to 7-5-0 after two absymal road games this weekend. On Friday, they lost 4-0 to Milwaukee and on Saturday they lost 5-3 to Cleveland. During this road trip, the Grizzlies have continued to exhibit numerous special teams problems. In both games over the weekend, the power play (which received 10 chances) did not convert, and the penalty kill was exceptionally poor (giving up 4 goals on 11 tries).
But don’t start jumping off bridges just yet, Grizzlies fans. Rugged defensive-minded coaches Bob Bourne, Craig Ludwig, and Jason Taylor, should whip these green mommas-boys into proper penalty killing shape soon — it’s their speciality.
The Grizzlies are 2-2-0 on their current road trip. Their next game is Friday in Detroit against the Vipers.
