Game Story The Newfoundland Growlers have now lost back-to-back games after dropping a 2-1 decision to the Maine Mariners Tuesday night at Mile One Centre. Aaron Luchuk opened the scoring with 29 seconds to play in the opening period after making a nice play at the blue line to keep control of the puck, and then bat a rebound behind Francois Brassard for his 15th of the season and to give the Growlers a 1-0 lead after 20 minutes of play. Greg Chase evened the score at 7:57 of the middle frame as he cut across the front of the net and wristed a shot behind Parker Gahagen. Todd Skirving was looking to give the Growlers the lead at the 13-minute mark of the second period, but Francois Brassard came up tall and turned aside the shorthanded breakaway attempt to keep the 1-1 score heading into the third period. Terrance Wallin gave the Mariners their first lead of the game at 9:58 after fighting off a pack of defending Growlers and fired it home for a 2-1 game. Growlers Head Coach pulled netminder Parker Gahagen with 2:12 to play in the game, but the Growlers couldn’t capitalize with the extra man for a 2-1 final score. Parker Gahagen made 26 saves for the Growlers, and Francois Brassard made 34 for the Mariners. Quick Hits
