For the first time since October, the Grizzlies appear to be turning the corner. Utah completed the weekend sweep of San Francisco with a 3-2 win on Saturday in what was one of the team's most complete performances in weeks.
"That was our best game from start to finish so far this season, no question," said Grizzlies coach Kevin Colley.
Entering the game, the Grizzlies had been struggling to put together three good periods in a row. They got that against the Bulls, and it started with goaltender Grant Rollheiser, who had his best game yet as a Grizzly. Rollheiser allowed a power-play goal in each of the first two periods, but he kept San Francisco out of the net for the final 32 minutes of the contest.
