Notes

Pregame:

  • Defenseman Andrew Campbell will be playing in his 600th-career American Hockey League game.
  • Jalen Smereck, a Detroit native, will make his season debut tonight in his home state, skating with Kyle Capobianco on the team's third defensive unit.
  • Hunter Miska leads the team out onto the ice for warm-ups. He will make his third start of the season.
  • Kyle Wood is a healthy scratch. He had played in all 72 games in franchise history leading up to tonight.

First Period:

  • The Roadrunners outshoot the Griffins 12-to-9 in the first period.
  • Both clubs go 0-for-1 on the power play.

Second Period:

  • The Roadrunners score three goals in a 4:31 minute span, including two power play markers.
  • Dylan Strome nets his first-career professional goal to give the Roadrunners a 3-1 lead.
  • Strome has a hand in all three of the Roadrunners' second period goals (1G, 2A).

Third Period:

  • Hunter Miska stops all 15 shots faced in the third period to preserve a 3-1 Roadrunners win.

Highlights

  • Mike Sislo, on a 5-on-3 fires home a Dylan Strome pass to tie the game 1-1.

  • Kyle Capobianco one-times a Conor Garland pass through traffic and into the net to give the Roadrunners a 2-1 lead.
