The Afternoon Shift – Nov. 16

If you’re a Griffins fan, player or employee, you have three shopping days left until Christmas.

At least that’s what it’s going to seem like, as the team prepares to embark on one of its busiest holiday schedules ever.

Beginning with this Friday’s game against Houston, Grand Rapids will play 16 of 22 games within the cozy confines of Van Andel Arena. Thirteen of those home games will be played between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day, including 10 during December alone.

Only twice before have the Griffins played 10 home games in a single month, and it worked out well for them on each occasion. Most recently, they had a jolly 6-3-1-0 yuletide in December 2007, after going 7-2-1 in February 1999.
