Growlers Earn Fifteenth Straight Win at Mile One Centre
The Newfoundland Growlers extended their winning streak to a franchise-high 10 games and their home winning streak to 15 games in a 4-1 victory over the Kansas City Mavericks Tuesday night at Mile One Centre.
Giorgio Estephan opened the scoring with a powerplay tally 9:06 into the game after sliding a wrister five-hole on Mavericks netminder Tyler Parsons for his 16th of the season and to give the Growlers a 1-0 lead. Matt Bradley squeaked another five-hole shot past Parsons with 3:06 remaining in the period to send the Growlers to the dressing room up 2-0 after 20 minutes of play.
The Mavericks put themselves on the board at the 6:42 mark of the second period when Bryan Lemos completed a tap-in in front of Angus Redmond for a powerplay tally that cut the Growlers lead to 2-1, and it stood as the only offense in a low-event second period that saw the Mavericks outshoot the Growlers 8-4.
Marcus Power continued his hot play as of late and re-stored the two-goal lead for the Growlers after rifling a cross-ice pass from Garrett Johnston top shelf on Parsons for his team-leading 17th of the season at 4:02 of the third period.
The Mavericks pulled the netminder for an extra attacker with 1:55 remaining in the game, and Garrett Johnston fired his first of the season into the empty net with 51 seconds remaining to seal the deal for a 4-1 final score.
