Larsson Rebounds from Shaky Start in GR
Daniel Larsson is starting to look more like the goaltender that was an AHL All-Star last year, instead of the one who gave up five goals and was pulled in his second start of this season. The 23-year-old Larsson won his second game in a row and stopped a career-high 41 shots during the Grand Rapids Griffins' 6-1 victory against the Abbotsford Heat on Sunday night.
That game that got him pulled against Phoenix affiliate San Antonio saw 5 our of 6 shots (ouch!) go past Larsson in the first period before he was pulled. Coach Curt Fraser came to the young Swede's aid:
The Griffins are currently 4-4-0 in eight games played this season.
