Worcester, Massachusetts - The Worcester Railers broke a 2-2 third period tie to defeat the Utah Grizzlies 4-2 Sunday afternoon at DCU Center.
“We did not manage the puck well enough and when we had our chances early, we didn’t bury them,” said Head Coach/General Manager Tim Branham.
Utah took a 1-0 lead 4:17 into the first period as Ryan Misiak (15) scored walking in from Brendan Harms. Sam Windle also picked up an assist. The Utah lead held for 14:39 before Worcester tied the game with 1:04 left in the first.
The Grizzlies took a 2-1 lead 11:32 into the second period as Charley Graaskamp fed Jake Marchment (15) for a lead that lasted 1:20.
The Railers scored on a breakaway off of a turnover 9:12 into the third period and then off of another giveaway with 3:12 remaining in the game.
Utah went 0-3 on the power-play and 2-2 on the penalty-kill.
