Arizona State Sun Devils Jerseys . Abbott had two assists during regulation, and McKegg had one. They were the only players to score in the five-round shootout. Luke Glendening, who was playing in his fourth career outdoor game, scored twice for the Griffins. "Its special," said Glendening, a Grand Rapids native and Michigan graduate. "Its in Detroit, and I come to Tigers games with my family and friends, so to be able to play here was fun. "Obviously, were frustrated with the outcome, but to soak in the whole experience was special." Carter Ashton had a goal and an assist for the Marlies. The game was part of the Hockeytown Winter Festival. preceding the NHLs Winter Classic between the Detroit Red Wings and Toronto Maple Leafs at Michigan Stadium on New Years Day. "It was louder than I thought it was going to be," Griffins coach Jeff Blashill said. "The fans were into it for sure, and Id be interested to be a Tiger and see what its like when its full because it was loud out there. "It was a great atmosphere." Of the seven previous AHL outdoor games, five have gone to overtime. Toronto forward Kenny Ryan, who is from nearby Franklin, Mich., scored the tying goal at 2:22 of the third period. "I come to games a lot in the summer with friends and family," Ryan said. "It was a pretty cool experience sitting out there in the outfield, almost, just looking at all the people that came, everything that was going on. "It was a really great experience." Light snow fell periodically throughout the game, and the game-time temperature was a chilly 22 degrees. Outdoor games are generally tougher on the goalies, who don't get a chance to warm up on the heated benches. "It was definitely tough staying warm out there," Griffins goalie Tom McCollum said. "I was skating around as much as I could. I actually ended up switching to a heavier shirt after the first period. It seemed to help a little bit but its one of those things you have to battle through." Marlies counterpart Drew Macintyre, who spent time in the Detroit organization, admitted to his own struggles, as well. "After a while, you get comfortable in a game. Pucks tend to kind of stick to you," Macintyre said. "Every puck, it was a battle to kind of cradle the rebounds. The entire game, you feel like you just got into the game. Even when I got into the shootout, it was like the game just started. "I hadnt got into a rhythm. That was different." It was the largest home crowd for the Griffins, who usually play at the 10,834-seat Van Andel Arena. However, it wasnt a record crowd for Grand Rapids, which played some games during its International Hockey League days at the 20,804-seat Palace -- the home of the NBAs Detroit Pistons.

"Were going in a different direction and weve got to figure out another spot or two for our ballclub," coach Mike Woodson said before the game.PARIS -- Patrick Chan knows the pressure on him will be intense at the Sochi Olympics after breaking three of his own world records on the way to his fourth victory at the Trophee Bompard. The three-time world champion crushed the competition to win the event by more than 30 points on Saturday -- eclipsing his own best scores in the short program and free skate and beating his best combined mark. The 22-year-old from Toronto knows his composure will be tested much more at the Winter Games. "A score like that -- if I put that up at the Olympics I think it will be very, very hard to beat," he said. "This is a grand prix event I've been to many times. The Olympics is only the second time (for me) and Im competing against the best skaters in the world so its a very different circumstance, a very different atmosphere." Meanwhile, American skater Ashley Wagner successfully defended her title despite finishing second in the free skate. "Tonight was a pretty decent night for me," Wagner said. "I think theres still room for improvement." Chan scored 196.75 in the free for an overall mark of 295.27 -- smashing his previous best combined score (280.9Cool and his free record (187.96) from the 2011 worlds. Japans Yuzuru Hanyu tallied 263.59 overall to finish second, and American Jason Brown scored 243.09 for his first senior medal. Both are 18. Chan expects a much fiercer challenge in Sochi, where he will need all of his mental strength. "Its going to be a goal of mine to be able to click and think about moments like today and yesterday to do the exact same thing at the Olympics," he said. Chan chose his favourite piece of music to skate to -- Concerto Grossos "Four Seasons" -- and performed with such grace and precision that the Paris crowd rose as one to give him a deafening ovation as he blew kisses back to them. "Its a piece of music that really meshed well with me," he said. "I could time my knee bends, my breathing to the music." Chan will be hard to stop at the Dec. 5-8 Grand Prix Final in Fukuoka, Japan. He nailed his opening quad toeloop-triple toeloop, his quad toeloop and his triple axel jumps with remarkable ease. "I felt truly ffree and I was really able to have ownership of every moment I could skate," Chan said. Welington Castillo Diamondbacks Jersey. "Thats why we compete. Not for the medals or the money. You kind of feel unbeatable and indestructible. I was happy, free and light." Chan usually scores so highly in the short that he has room for error in the long. "Today was a challenge because I've done very well in the short program in the past and havent had a good track record with the long," he said. Hanyu recovered brilliantly after a nervous start where he stumbled on his opening jump -- a quad salchow -- and then fell attempting a quad toeloop. He shook his head as he left the ice as the crowd warmly cheered him. Wagner, who was second at Skate America behind Japans Mao Asada last month, scored 194.37 and beat Adelina Sotnikova -- who had the best score in the long -- by five points. The 15-year-old Anna Pogorilaya was 10 points back in third spot. Both Russians and Wagner are qualified for the GP Final. Earlier, Olympic runners-up Pang Qing and Tong Jian won the Trophee Bompard pairs for the first time in their final season. World bronze medallists Meagan Duhamel of Lively, Ont., and Eric Radford of Balmerton, Ont., finished second, securing their place for the Fukuoka event, which will feature the top six skaters in each category. "Were incredibly proud of ourselves to make the final with the pressure we put on ourselves," Radford said. Americans Caydee Denney and John Coughlin took the bronze medal. Also, Olympic champions Tessa Virtue of London, Ont., and Scott Moir of Ilderton, Ont., followed up their success at Skate Canada by winning the ice dance. The Canadians were nine points better than European runners-up Elena Ilinykh and Nikita Katsalapov of Russia, who beat Cup of China winners Nathalie Pechalat and Fabian Bourzat of France by less than a point. "We felt like it was a strong skate," said Moir. "There were some great moments and it was a better skate than at Skate Canada especially the ending. Still we left some points out there. Technically we can't afford to do those little mistakes." Nicole Orford of Burnaby, B.C., and Thomas Williams of Okotoks, Alta., were eighth.
