The Newfoundland Growlers look to get back in the win column and end their franchise-high five-game losing streak with a mid-week matchup against the Manchester Monarchs, ECHL affiliate of the Los Angeles Kings. The Growlers have dominated the Monarchs this season, sporting a perfect 4-0 record.

 

LAST GAME

 

Evan Neugold looked to have netted the shootout winner in the 11th round, but a controversial call by the officials to wave it off resulted in the Newfoundland Growlers dropping a 5-4 18-round shootout heartbreaker to the Maine Mariners Sunday afternoon at the Cross Insurance Arena. Brady Ferguson netted a pair of goals, while Tyler Mayea with his first pro goal and Josh Kestner also chipped in for Newfoundland. Eamon McAdam made 35 saves along with 13 in the shootout.
