The Grand Rapids Griffins enjoyed a quick party in Syracuse following their 5-2 Game 6, championship-clinching victory. Then, it was back on the Detroit Red Wings’ team plane for a flight back home. And as they made their way from Syracuse back to Grand Rapids, several members of the Calder Cup-winning Griffins took to Twitter to express their excitement (Warning: Some R-rated language ahead): My oh my the griffins win it . I dont believe it . What a feeling ! #caldercup #peskyGriffs — Francis pare (@F9Pare) June 19, 2013 Thanks to all the fans in GR !!
