STEELHEADS BOUNCE BACK WITH 4-2 WIN OVER GROWLERS 

ST. JOHN’S, NEWFOUNDLAND – The Idaho Steelheads (38-16-2-1, 79pts) defeated the Newfoundland Growlers (26-24-7-2, 61pts) Sunday afternoon by a final score of 4-2 in front of 3,208 fans at the Mary Brown’s Centre. Idaho and Newfoundland wrap up their three-game series tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. (MT). 

Idaho led 2-0 after the first period as Jared Moe turned aside all 14 shots he faced. Matt Register (8th) made it 1-0 at 11:20 receiving a pass in the left circle from A.J. White and Will Merchant. The defenseman picked the top near corner extending his point-streak to five games. Just 3:40 later Francesco Arcuri (16th) was sprung out through center ice on a breakaway. With strong back pressure from the Growlers and Lynden McCallum jumping up in the play Arcuri tried to feed McCallum in the right circle but it bounced off a Growler and right back to Arcuri in the left circle where he sent a wrist shot near side into the net. 

Idaho took a 4-1 lead after forty minutes of play which started with a goal from Nicholas Canade (5th) 2:55 into the second period. Lincoln Erne from behind his own blue line sprung Canade on a breakaway and from the right circle he dribbled a shot past Peksa making it 3-0. With 5:17 remaining in the stanza Issac Johnson broke Moe’s shutout streak with a breakaway score on the Growlers 19th shot of the game. Just 2:06 later Patrick Kudla (8thwould give the Steelheads back a three-goal cushion. From the right-wing half wall, he sent a pass through the high slot that got deflected off a Growlers player skate and right back to Kudla. Then he rolled the blue line and from the top of the left circle snapped a wrist into the low far corner. 

Zach O’Brien made it 4-2 at 5:52 of the third period and the Growlers pulled their netminder with about three and a half minutes left as the Steelheads held off a late push. 

Jared Moe made 29 saves 31 shots in the win while Vyacheslav Peksa turned aside 27 of the 31 shots he faced.
