The disparity in the standings between Grand Rapids and the Manitoba Moose was evident on the ice as the Griffins blasted the visitors 5-1.
The Griffins are fighting for first in the Central Division with 78 points while the Moose have lost five in a row and sit in last in the league with 45 points.
Axel Blomqvist opened the scoring midway through the first but that was all the offence Manitoba could muster. Eric Comrie allowed four goals on 26 shots.
The Moose will return to action Friday night at Lake Erie.
