Game Story The Newfoundland Growlers slid back into the win column with a 4-1 victory over the Maine Mariners Sunday afternoon in Portland, Maine. The Growlers came out of the gate firing, registering 3 goals in the first 15 minutes of play at the Cross Insurance Arena. Justin Brazeau finished off a 2-1 play just 2:36 into the game, Mark Tremaine picked up his first pro point on the play. Dylan Vander Esch and Evan Neugold each blasted the puck behind the Maine Mariners goalie, Francois Brassard before time expired in the first period. Maine tried to mount a comeback early in the second period as Jeff Taylor made good on a rebound chance and wafted the puck into an open Growlers cage, beating Angus Redmond. Zach O'Brien responded for the Newfoundland team when he dangled to puck past the Maine defence and deposited a backhander into the Mariners mesh.Neither team scored in the third period as the Growlers hung on to capture their 37th win of the season, ending the team's franchise-record four-game losing streak. Angus Redmond recorded 15 saves on 16 shots and solidified his 13th straight win since joining the Growlers. Quick Hits
