 Game Story The Newfoundland Growlers extended their winning streak to three games Friday night at Mile One Centre in a chippy 4-3 win against the defending Western Conference Champions, Toledo Walleye. Justin Buzzeo struck first at 9:04 after finishing off some nice stick work by Troy Loggins and beating Angus Redmond to give the Walleye a 1-0 lead. Trey Bradley looked to tie the game at one with five minutes to play in the first on a shorthanded breakaway, but struck iron on his quest for his first goal of the season, to preserve the 1-0 Walleye lead after 20 minutes of play. Zach O’Brien fired a wrister through the five-hole of Pat Nagle at 4:23 of the second period for his fifth of the season to tie the game at 1-1, and Brady Ferguson gave the Growlers their first lead of the game with a highlight reel power-play goal 5:25 later for a 2-1 game. Abbott Girduckis replied for the Walleye with 6:15 to play in the second to even the score at 2-2. Tommy Panico, who made his Mile One Centre debut, broke the 2-2 deadlock with 10:35 remaining in the third period after firing a rocket past Nagle for his first of the season pulling the Growlers ahead 3-2. Toledo’s Brandon Anselmini was awarded a penalty shot with 6:25 to play, but Angus Redmond stood tall between the pipes for the Growlers to turn it aside. The Walleye struck just under three minutes later however, as Michael Moffat roofed a wrist shot for a 3-3 game. Brady Ferguson played the role of hero firing a shot through traffic with just 39 seconds remaining to seal the deal for a 4-3 victory. Quick Hits
