Gulls Doubled up at Tucson 6-3
The San Diego Gulls concluded a two-game road trip with a 6-3 defeat to the Tucson Roadrunners at Tucson Convention Center Arena.
Giovanni Fiore scored on the power play to earn his fourth goal of the season and added an assist for his second multi-point game of 2018-19 (1-1=2).
Corey Tropp tallied his fourth multi-point game of the season with a goal and assist (1-1=2). Tropp has tallied nine points (2-7=9) and seven assists his last seven games.
Troy Terry earned an assist to extend his point and assist streak to six games (3-6=9). The six-game point streak to begin his AHL career set a new Gulls rookie record, passing Fiore's five game-point streak to begin his AHL career from Oct. 13-25, 2017 (2-3=5). Terry's six-game assist streak is a club rookie record for assists to begin a Gulls career and the longest current assist streak by a rookie in the AHL. His six consecutive games with an assist is the second longest current assist streak in the AHL behind Iowa's Brennan Menell's seven-game assist streak (0-7=7).
Jaycob Megna netted his first goal and second point of the season.
Sam Steel recorded his first career AHL points (assist). Deven Sideroff earned his fourth assist of the campaign, and fourth in as many games.
The Gulls return to San Diego to begin a season-long five-game homestand on Friday, Nov. 9 against the Colorado Eagles at Valley View Casino Center (7 p.m.) in the first-ever matchup between the two clubs.
San Diego Gulls
On the power play
We got pucks on net on the power play, but it's not enough. We can't just count on our power play to score goals all game long. We have to play five-on-five also.
On comeback effort
We shouldn't put ourselves in that position in the first place. We have to start right off the get-go and we have to work hard and we have to compete. We didn't compete tonight.
On facing Colorado this weekend
We'll start digging into them tomorrow, and we have to show up and have a higher compete level.
