GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. -- Two in a row is technically a win streak. Right now, the Grand Rapids Griffins will take it.

Tomas Jurco scored a hat trick in the second game of a conditioning stint from Detroit -- and the Griffins won consecutive games for the first time under Todd Nelson in a 7-4 win over the San Diego Gulls at Van Andel Arena.

Grand Rapids scored four goals in the first period, topped off by Andreas Athanasiou's second of the season and first since being assigned back to the Griffins from the Red Wings.
