Growlers Streak Halted by Mariners

February 15, 2020 - ECHL (ECHL) - Newfoundland Growlers News Release

The Newfoundland Growlers saw their record-setting home winning streak end at 19 wins as they suffered a 3-1 heartbreak loss on Valentine's Day Weekend to the Maine Mariners Saturday night at Mile One Centre before a crowd of 4,735.

A scoreless opening period saw the Mariners outshoot the Growlers 11-9, but Colt Conrad had the best chance of the period near the seven-minute mark as he appeared to backhand a shot past Francois Brassard, but after video review, it was deemed no goal.

Michael McNicholas opened the scoring for Maine 1:29 into the second period after his wrister from the slot found its way behind Maksim Zhukov for a powerplay tally that pulled the visitors ahead 1-0.

Riley Woods put the Growlers on the board with 3:17 to play in the second period after pick-pocketing Mariners defenseman Sean Day and sliding a breakaway goal five-hole for a 1-1 score after 40 minutes of play.

The Mariners went to the powerplay with 2:40 remaining in the game after the Growlers were nabbed with a delay of game minor, and just over a minute in Morgan Adams-Moisan scored the go-ahead goal, and Greg Chase added an empty netter 59 seconds later to seal the deal for a 3-1 Maine victory.
