ROCKFORD, Ill. (WIFR) It hasn't been pretty, but the IceHogs continue to find ways to get points in the standings. Sunday was no different.
Rockford defeated Grand Rapids 2-1, finishing off a three games in three days stretch earning five of a possible six points.
The Hogs and Griffins were scoreless after two periods. However, Rockford scored twice within a five minute span late into the third that vaulted the IceHogs past Grand Rapids.
Netminder Collin Delia made 37 saves on 38 shots in the win.
Despite the gritty performance to get the victory, interim head coach Derek King said the team needs to be better.
"There's a lot of good hockey players in that room and we're just not showing it, individually and as a team. We need to snap out of this," said King.
"As a staff, we'll figure out what we have to do, but I can only push them so far. I can't stick handle for them, I can't shoot the puck for them, they have to do that. So, I guess it's a development league and they have to learn that, because if they don't learn it, they're not going to go too much farther than this."
