Game Story
The Newfoundland Growlers kicked off the 2019 portion of their season dropping a 2-1 decision to the Jacksonville Icemen Friday night at Mile One Centre.
A scoreless first period saw the Growlers generated pressure firing 13 pucks at the Icemen net, but Mikhail Berdin was solid turning them all aside.
Marcus Power opened the scoring for a 1-0 Growlers lead at 4:59 of the second period banging a rebound home past Berdin for a powerplay tally. The goal marked the first time the Growlers scored against the Icemen after dropping their previous matchup 2-0.
Maxime Fortier evened the score with 7:48 to play in the second after a blocked shot turned into a breakaway that he made no mistake on, roofing it past Barone’s glove.
Fortier scored his second of the night with 9:32 to go in the final frame making it a 2-1 Icemen lead giving Jacksonville their first lead of the night.
The Growlers generated chances with Brad Barone on the bench for an extra attacker, but Berdin stood tall preserving the 2-1 lead.
