Portland, ME, January 15, 2013 – Kris Newbury scored two goals, and Cam Talbot made 29 saves, as the Connecticut Whale rolled to a 6-1 win over the Atlantic Division-leading Portland Pirates Tuesday night at the Cumberland County Civic Center. Portland had won eight straight home games, tying a franchise record, and 13 of its previous 15 overall.  The Whale won despite being outshot 30-22, and scored two shorthanded goals. “I thought our ‘D’ played good, we made a good first pass and we didn’t spend much time in our end,” Newbury said.  “(Talbot) played great for us again and we were able to get a couple of goals.  “It’s a lot easier when we’re not playing as much in our end, holding on to the puck in theirs.  I thought we did a great job from our D getting the puck through to the net, and we had guys in front tipping pucks, getting lots of traffic.” The only goal of the first period was a shorthander by the Whale, and the second goal in three games for Kelsey Tessier
