Game Story The Newfoundland Growlers broke out the brooms Saturday night at Mile One Centre in a 2-0 win against the Toledo Walleye to sweep their four-game November homestand. A scoreless first period saw the Walleye outshoot the Growlers 7-5, but was highlighted by James Melindy taking exception to a hit on Aaron Luchuk with 3:04 remaining in a spirited scrap with Michael Moffat, much to the delight of Growlers Nation. Trey Bradley opened the scoring 1:54 into the second period after his shot re-directed off a Walleye skate and in the back of the net marking his first pro goal and giving the Growlers a 1-0 lead. Bradley’s goal was the only scoring in a second period that saw the Growlers fire 17 shots on net. Zach O’Brien doubled the lead to 2-0 with 2:58 remaining in the game going after a beautiful pass by Matt Bradley sent the St. John’s native on a breakaway that he made no mistake on. The Walleye pulled the goalie for an extra attacker with two minutes left, but Maksim Zhukov stood tall between the pipes to secure a 2-0 win and make 27 saves en route to his first professional shutout. Quick Hits
