The Grand Rapids Griffins will play for the Calder Cup for the first time in franchise history after defeating the Oklahoma City Barons four games to three in the Western Conference Finals, capped off by Wednesday’s wild 5-4 victory in Game 7 at Van Andel Arena.

The Griffins, winners of the Robert W. Clarke Trophy as Western Conference playoff champions, will now face the Syracuse Crunch in the best-of-seven Calder Cup Finals.

Games 1 and 2 will be played this Saturday and Sunday at the Onondaga County War Memorial, before the series switches to Van Andel Arena on Wednesday, June 12, for the first of as many as three straight games.
