On the strength of Petr Mrazek’s 27 saves, the Grand Rapids Griffins claimed Game 1 of a conference final for the first time ever on Friday, earning a 2-1 win over the Oklahoma City Barons at Van Andel Arena.

Landon Ferraro’s goal 2:35 into the second period held up as the game-winner, as the Griffins also won a conference finals game on home ice for the first time in 10 years and three days, dating to a Game 6 victory over Houston on May 21, 2003.

Grand Rapids will look to take a 2-0 series lead tonight when it hosts the Barons at 7 p.m.
