OKLAHOMA CITY, Ok — Petr Mrazek made a career-high 40 saves and Joakim Andersson scored the games first goal to lead the Griffins to a 4-0 win over the Oklahoma City Barons in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals. The series is now tied at 2-2.

Andersson scored on a power play in the first period after Gustav Nyquist found him all alone at the side of the net. Both Nyquist and Andersson were playing their first game with the Griffins since the Detroit Red Wings season ended.
