Mariners Win Fourth in a Row, Sweep Admirals in Norfolk

February 16, 2019 - ECHL (ECHL) - Maine Mariners News Release

NORFOLK, VA - Greg Chase, a former Norfolk Admiral, continued to torment his old team as scored the game winner late in the 2nd and added another assist to complete a five point weekend and lead the Maine Mariners to their fourth win in a row and a road sweep of the Norfolk Admirals on Saturday night at the Norfolk Scope, by a 4-2 final score.

Norfolk took a 1-0 lead at 9:49 of the opening period when Connor Hurley slid a shot behind Toivonen and in off the post. The Mariners responded well and tied the game at 12:47 when Terrence Wallin stuffed in a backhand wraparound that deflected off of goaltender Ty Reichenbach. The Mariners held a 16-4 shot advantage at the end of one.

At 2:40 of the second, Dwyer Tschantz scored for his second consecutive game when he banged home his own rebound, with Greg Chase setting it up. The score remained 2-1 until late in the period when Darik Angeli tied it up with a power play goal, a simple wrist shot from the right wing that snuck past Maine goaltender Hannu Toivonen. Again, the Mariners answered quickly when Chase restored the lead at 15:30, gathering a puck in the slot and wristing one past a sprawling Reichenbach. The Admirals put 19 shots on goal in the 2nd period, but the Mariners took the 3-2 lead into the locker room.

At 7:29 of the third, Dillan Fox picked up a Toivonen save and led a 3-on-2 up ice. Terrence Wallin's shot was stopping by Reichenbach but Fox buried the rebound to give Maine the first two-goal lead of the game. Toivonen stopped 30 shots in total to earn his third win. Reichenbach stopped 32 of 36 in the loss.

The Mariners have won back-to-back road games for the first time in 2019.

The Mariners continue their road trip Wednesday night in Reading at 7:00 PM. They will then travel to Glens Falls, NY and Manchester, NH next weekend. The next home game is Sunday, February 24th at 3:00 PM against the Worcester Railers. A full team autograph session will follow the game.
