The Grizzlies return to action at 8-1-0-2 in their last 11 games after having their ten-game unbeaten streak snapped Saturday against Allen.
In The League
Utah’s 8-1-0-2 mark since February 15 is the best winning percentage in the league at .818, just ahead of Toledo’s .791 winning percentage at 9-2-1-0.
Utah looks for a similar run in the final eleven games in an effort to clinch their eleventh-straight playoff appearance. Utah finished 7-1 in their final eight games last year to leapfrog both Alaska and Kansas City into a playoff spot for the tenth-straight year.
Not Even Close
During their recent 8-1-0-2 stretch, four of the eight wins were by three goals or more and five of the eight were by two goals or more.
What It Was
Utah’s ten-game unbeaten streak was the team’s best ten-game stretch since arriving in Utah in 1995. It marked their third ten-game unbeaten streak, all three have been snapped at ten after previously occurring in 2009 and 2013. The ten-game stretch saw Utah record 18 of a possible 20 standings points.
Utah has scored four goals or more in a team record nine-straight games as they stand at 20-3-2-3 this year when scoring four or more goals.
It’s been over 20 years since the last time the Grizzlies came close to this current streak of four or more goals in consecutive games. They scored four or more goals in seven-straight games January 29-February 21, 1997. Utah scored four or more goals in six-straight games March 12-19, 2010 in a stretch of four goals or more in nine of ten games from March 12-April 3, 2010.
Back To The Road
The Grizzlies return to the road this weekend coming off of a 3-0-0-1 trip February 28-March 4 to the Quad Cities and Indianapolis and with a road record of 5-0-0-1 going back over the last month.
