WATCH: Stars win in OT, Griffins go back to Texas

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Thanks to Texas Stars Chris Mueller’s overtime score, the Grand Rapids Griffins lost Game 5 Friday and need to win the next two games in Texas.

After the 1st period, the Griffins were down 0-2. But thanks to scores from Mitch Callahan and Teemu Pulkkinen in the 2nd period, the Griffins had the score tied 2-2 and forced overtime. However, the Texas Stars were able to get the biscuit in the basket during OT play and they won the game.

The Stars are now leading the series 3-2. The Griffins travel to Texas to play the Stars; they need to win Games 6 and 7 to stay alive in the Calder Cup playoffs.
