Game Story
The Newfoundland Growlers win streak halts at six as the Railers beat the Growlers 3-2 in overtime.
The Railers would score first, on their fifth shot of the game, beating Growlers goalie Eamon McAdam who made his third start of the season after returning from the Toronto Marlies of the AHL earlier in the week. The goal was scored by Ryan Hitchcock, just his second of the season.
Just 19 seconds after the Worcester tally, Marcus Power would jump on a loose puck behind the Railers defence to quickly dangle and tuck a backhand shot behind Mitch Gilliam to tie the game at one.
Both Goalies would stand tall until Griffen Molino is awarded a penalty shot with 5:55 minutes left in the game. Molino would make good on his chance to go 1 VS 1 with Gilliam, scoring his third goal of the season on the play.
The Railers would respond with just over 37 seconds left in the game, with their goalie pulled, as Ryan MacKinnon would tap the puck past McAdam. The Growlers would argue the goal was kicked in but upon review, the game-tying goal would stand.
The Railers would complete the comeback 3:54 into overtime as Matt Schmalz is gifted a rebound on the doorstep of McAdam.
Quick Hits
