For all of us diehard hockey fans (particularly, Red Wings fans), it has been fun to watch the Grand Rapids Griffins' run through the AHL playoffs. I am particularly impressed with the job that recent Michigan grad, Luke Glendenning, has done, and I think he could have a nice career in minor hockey. In fact, he scored a goal tonight in Grand Rapids' win, which put them up 3-0 agains the Syracuse Crunch in the Calder Cup Finals. Way to go, Joe!
