January 26, 2019 - ECHL (ECHL) - Brampton Beast News Release

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO - Nathan Todd continued his scoring streak and Jake Paterson made 21 saves as the Brampton Beast defeated the Newfoundland Growlers 3-1 on Star Wars night.

The Brampton Beast returned from their one-game road swing to host the Newfoundland Growlers live from the CAA Centre at 7:15 PM.

The Beast, who were decked out in Star Wars jerseys, fought the Growlers to a 0-0 tie after the first period of play. Both teams traded wicked scoring chances, but both Eamon McAdam and Jake Paterson held the fort and kept it scoreless after one.

Brampton hit their locker room tied 0-0 and ahead in shots by a count of 13-4.

The only scoring play of the second was off of Brandon Marino. The Beast captain waited in front of the net on the power play and found the puck sitting on his stick in the crease. He deftly flicked it home and gave the Beast a 1-0 lead at 11:25. Brampton retired to their locker room up 1-0.

The third period was a fast-paced duel between the two Canadian teams. The Beast weren't satisfied with their 1-0 lead and took advantage on the power play for the second time.

David Vallorani ripped a shot from the right dot that beat McAdam and gave the Beast a 2-0 lead at 9:26 of the third period.

The Growlers broke the shutout bid of Jake Paterson with five minutes to go in the third. It was the big forward Hudson Elynuik banging home a rebound after a Beast defensive breakdown at 17:21.

With McAdam pulled and the net empty, the Beast fought their way to centre ice where Nathan Todd took the puck and sent it into the open net to ice the game and give the Beast a 3-1 lead at 18:41.

The Growlers pushed a little bit more but Brampton hung on and secured themselves their fifth win in a row. Paterson finished the night with 21 saves in the winning effort. McAdam was tabbed with the loss and made 29 total saves.

Notes: Molson Three Stars 3) Vallorani (BRA) 2) McAdam (NFL) 1) Paterson (BRA). The Beast finished the contest two-for-five on the power play. The Growlers went scoreless in four opportunities. Brampton won its fifth game in a row. The Beast and Growlers renew acquaintances Sunday afternoon at 2:00 PM.
