Growlers Take Overtime Victory in Utah

December 12, 2019 - ECHL (ECHL) - Newfoundland Growlers News Release

The Newfoundland Growlers capped off a long few days of travel with a 4-3 overtime victory over the Utah Grizzles at the Maverik Center in West Valley City, Utah Wednesday night.

The Grizzlies opened the scoring after Tim McGauley slid the puck under an out-stretched Maksim Zhukov just five-minutes into the game. Marcus Power responded for the Growlers after jumping on a loose puck in front of Grizzles goalie Brad Barone to tie the game at one.

Marcus Power continued to work his magic in the second period as he pounced on another Grizzles rebound and tucked the puck up and under the crossbar to give the Growlers a 2-1 lead 9:13 seconds into the frame. Former Growler, Griffen Molino made good on a shorthanded breakaway chance for the Grizzlies to tie the game at two heading into the third period of play.

The back and forth scoring trend continued in the third, Giorgio Estephan netted a nifty backhand goal after splitting the Grizzles defence 8:01 into the period but the group from Utah replied two minutes later with goal from Joe Wegwerth.

The game headed to overtime where former Growlers goalie Brad Barone mishandled the puck leading to an awkward bank-in goal by Joseph Duszak to secure the 4-3 overtime victory for the Growlers.
