Griffins Playoff Tickets on Sale Saturday
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. - Tickets for the Grand Rapids Griffins' first two home games during the 2016 Calder Cup Playoffs will go on sale to the public this Saturday, April 16 at 10 a.m.
Grand Rapids' opponent and dates for the best-of-five Central Division Semifinals will be announced no later than Saturday night, when the Griffins complete their 20th regular season by hosting the Bakersfield Condors for the first time ever. Game time is 7 p.m.
Currently sitting in third place in the Central Division, the Griffins could finish anywhere from second to fourth and face any of three opponents - the Lake Erie Monsters, Milwaukee Admirals or Rockford IceHogs - in the opening round. Milwaukee (101 points) has already clinched the division title, while Lake Erie (93), Grand Rapids (90) and Rockford (90) are separated by only three points with a pair of games remaining for each team and the Griffins owning the tiebreaker over both rivals.
Grand Rapids will travel to Rockford on Friday for a crucial clash with the IceHogs at 8 p.m. EDT. A Griffins win in regulation would guarantee a division semifinal series between Grand Rapids and Lake Erie.
Single-game playoff tickets will be available at all Star Tickets locations, including The Zone, online through griffinshockey.com, by phone through Star Tickets at (800) 585-3737, or via the Griffins app for iPhone or Android.
