Griffins-Barons game postponed due to ‘severe weather’

Scary stuff from Oklahoma City, per the Grand Rapids Griffins:

Tonight’s Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals between the Grand Rapids Griffins and Oklahoma City Barons has been postponed and rescheduled for Sunday due to severe weather conditions in downtown Oklahoma City.

Game 4 of the series will be held on Saturday at 8 p.m. EDT, and Game 5 will now take place on Sunday at 5 p.m. EDT. Both games will be held at the Cox Convention Center, before the series turns back to Grand Rapids for a potential Game 6 on Tuesday.

I'll have more later, but WOOD TV's Larry Figurski and Fox 17's Steve Amorose reported that EVERYBODY--the Griffins, the Barons, their fans, the media, the rink staff--was evacuated from the rink, and the Grand Rapids Press's Peter J. Wallner reports that there's been significant flooding in the building.

All I can say is that when Nyquist and Anderson get back to GR, I would imagine scoring is going to go up a little for them.

And DelKaiser? I would think the Griffs should turn into an AHL juggernaut.
