June 1, 2019 - ECHL (ECHL) - Newfoundland Growlers News Release

The Toledo Walleye force game six at Mile One Centre with a 3-2 win over the Newfoundland Growlers at the Huntington Centre in Toledo. The Growlers continue to lead the championship series 3-2.

Toledo came out the gate with an extra step and scored just 2:27 into the first frame as Tyler Spezia made good on an odd-man rush to beat Growlers goalie Michael Garteig. Newfoundland scored in the second half of the period to tie the game at 1 from the stick of Marcos Power who grabbed a rebound and tucked it behind a sprawling Pat Nagle.

The Growlers powerplay was called into action in the second period but it was the Walleye who capitalized, Ryan Obuchowski scored off an odd-man rush. The Walleye added another goal just 2 minutes later, this time from the stick of A.J. Jenks.

The Growlers made it interesting in the third, Zach O'Brien netted his 16th goal of the playoffs 12:50 into the third and both teams continued to trade chances until time expired.
