Update: Here are some game notes from the AHL’s “Morning Skate” story:

After its first third-period rally of the season, Manitoba brings a 1-0 series lead into Game 2 against Grand Rapids today… Michael Spacek‘s goal with 1:09 remaining capped a three-goal final frame and lifted the Moose to a 3-2 win of the Griffins yesterday… Manitoba was 0-18-2-2 in the regular season — one of two AHL teams without a win — when trailing after 40 minutes… Eric Comrie, one of 12 Moose players making his Calder Cup Playoff debut in Game 1, finished with 34 saves… Jan Kostalek and Cameron Schilling also scored for Manitoba, and Chase De Leo recorded two assists… Kostalek’s goal at 6:22 of the third period ended a Moose drought of 225:29 without a goal against Grand Rapids at Bell MTS Place… Ben Street and Turner Elson had the goals for the Griffins… Tom McCollum got the start for Grand Rapids and stopped 28 shots… The Griffins outshot Manitoba 36-31 for the game, including 20-8 in the first period.
