Game Story The Newfoundland Growlers kicked off their four-game homestand in style Friday night at Mile One Centre with a 5-3 win over the Atlanta Gladiators. Samuel Asselin, the reigning ECHL Player of the Week, opened the scoring with 8:39 to play in the opening period after capitalizing on a cross-crease pass on a shot Maksim Zhukov couldn’t get enough of to put the Gladiators ahead 1-0. Scott Pooley responded with 3:47 left in the first period showing off his baseball skills and batting the puck out of mid-air and behind Sean Bonar, on a play that needed video review but was deemed a good goal to tie the game at 1-1. Zach O’Brien gave the Growlers a late first-period lead after slapping home a one-time pass from Marcus Power for a 2-1 game after the opening 20 minutes. Atlanta tied the game just 28 seconds into the second period as Luke Nogard was wide open in front of the net and banged a rebound past Zhukov, but Justin Brazeau needed only 50 seconds to restore the Growlers lead after sniping a wrister off the crossbar and in for a 3-2 game. Joseph Duszak doubled the lead at 8:26 of the second period firing home his second of the season to send the Growlers to the dressing room up 4-2 after 40 minutes. Scott Pooley rifled his second of the night at 9:01 of the third period for a 5-2 game, and Josh Thrower responded with 55 seconds left in the game, but that’s as close as Atlanta would come as the Growlers took a 5-3 victory. Quick Hits
