The Griffins have set the franchise streak record with each of their last three wins. They have also tied a franchise records with 10 straight wins at home.
“I think every team now that plays us wants to be that team that breaks the streak,” Griffins head coach Todd Nelson said after Saturday’s game. “But that’s fine. That’s fine with me. I think I’d rather have that target on our back. That means that you’re a team where people are afraid of. So it’s a good feeling and when you’re winning games that’s what happens.”
The American Hockey League winning streak record was set in 2012 when the Norfolk Admirals won 28 straight.
Saturday’s game was the Griffins’ last until after Christmas. They next play the Lake Erie Monsters on Dec. 26 in Cleveland.
