MARINERS WEEKLY: Mariners Hit the Road Seeking Answers

Jan. 28, 2019 – The new year has been anything but kind to the Maine Mariners, who are now 3-8-0 in the month of January, and have seen themselves fall out of a North Division playoff position. Coming off a winless three-in-three, they embark on a Wednesday/Friday road swing, before returning to the Cross Insurance Arena on Saturday night to begin a five game home stand. The chaos of the North Division has kept them in contention, but as 2019’s first month wraps up, they hope to stop the bleeding this week.

The week that wasFriday, Jan. 25th – MAN: 2, MNE: 1

After winning a 1-0 goaltending duel the previous Friday, three combined goals were scored in the first period this time around. Manchester’s Jack Nevins and Maine’s Greg Chase swapped goals before Nic Pierog broke the tie with a controversial tally late in the period that was (correctly) ruled a goal after the referee conferred with the goal judge. Surprisingly, that was it for the offense, as 2-1 turned out to be the final score. The Mariners won the shot battle, 38-34. FULL GAME RECAP & HIGHLGHTS

Saturday, Jan. 26th – MNE: 3, MAN: 6Sam Kurker scored late in the 1st to give Manchester the lead, but Jason Salvaggio tied it up midway through the 2nd. Kurker got a power play goal to put the Monarchs back ahead, but that was answered by Morgan-Adams Moisan. Tied at two entering the third, things unraveled quickly for the Mariners as Manchester struck twice in the first two minutes and never looked back. Spencer Watson had a third period hat trick as the Monarchs scored a total of three power play goals in the game. FULL GAME RECAP

Sunday, Jan. 27th – ADK: 4, MNE: 2Ed Minney made his home debut between the pipes, giving Brandon Halverson a breather. Adams-Moisan put the Mariners up 1-0 in the first, but power play tallies by Desmond Bergin and Cullen Bradshaw put Adirondack in the lead. The Mariners had glorious scoring chances on both a 4-on-3 and 5-on-3, but couldn’t finish or gain any puck luck. Bergin’s second of the game and a shorthanded breakaway goal by Connor Riley sealed it. Drew Melanson scored late with the goalie pulled. FULL GAME RECAP & HIGHLGHTS
