GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WXYZ) -- The Red Wings' AHL affiliate, the Grand Rapids Griffins, will play the San Jose Barracuda in the western conference finals.

The Griffins defeated the Chicago Wolves Friday night to close out their second round series in five games.

This will be the seventh time Grand Rapids has played in a conference final in franchise history, and fifth as a member of the AHL. The Griffins won their first and only Calder Cup championship in 2013 under then-head coach Jeff Blashill.
