Game StoryScott Pooley and Riley Woods both potted a goal in the first 72 seconds of the game forcing former Detroit Redwing goaltender, Thomas McCollum from the Maine Mariners net early. Conner LaCouvee took over the goaltending duties for the Mariners against the Growlers who earned a quick 2-0 lead.Dillan Fox snapped a laser past Growlers goalie Maksim Zhukov to cut the Growlers lead in half just before the end of the first period but then the Mariners completed the comeback in the second when Ryan Culkin tipped the puck in on the powerplay.The Mariners took the lead early in the third after Terrence Wallin banged in a loose puck near the left post of Maksim Zhukov and Dillan Fox added his second of the night after he dumped the puck in from centre ice, handcuffing Zhukov before bouncing into the Growlers net.Taylor Cammarata was let loose on a breakaway with just five minutes left in the third and he made no mistake, scoring the fifth consecutive goal for the Mariners, and their third period of the period to secure a 5-2 win for the Portland squad.  Quick Hits
