IceCaps Continue New England Road Swing

Monday, 31.10.2011 / 5:20 PM / St. John's IceCaps
The St. John’s IceCaps head into the month of November in the midst of a six-game road trip through New England with games in Worcester, Connecticut and Bridgeport this week.

On Tuesday, the IceCaps stop in Worcester to play the Sharks (San Jose) on the heels of a pair of 4-3 overtime losses in Springfield and Providence this past weekend. The Sharks, despite being unbeaten in regulation time, sit third in the Atlantic Division. The team’s six games played are the fewest in the AHL. Still, the Sharks have averaged almost four goals per game and have allowed just 2.17 goals per game this season.

On the weekend, the IceCaps will play three games in less than 48 hours, beginning in Connecticut on Friday against the Whale. The first place Whale (6-1-0-2, 14 points) lead the Northeast Division by one point over the Adirondack Phantoms and are led by the goaltending tandem of Chad Johnson and Cameron Talbot. The duo has combined for six wins and a sparkling 1.93 GAA and a 0.932 save percentage.

The IceCaps head back to Worcester on Saturday before finishing the road trip in Bridgeport on Sunday afternoon with a 4:30 (NL time) puck drop. The Sound Tigers and IceCaps split a pair of games at Mile One Centre on October 21st and 22nd. Jeremy Colliton scored the overtime winner to give the Sound Tigers a 4-3 overtime victory in game one while Marco Rosa scored the eventual game winner in the second period to give the IceCaps a 4-3 win of their own in game two.

ICECAPS NOTES:
  • Road Warriors: Despite the two overtime losses last weekend, the IceCaps are unbeaten in regulation time in four road games this season, collecting at least one point in each game.
  • If You Build It...: The IceCaps boast the sixth best average attendance in the AHL (6,288) through the season’s first month.
  • Mannino Gets The Call: Goaltender Peter Mannino was recalled by Winnipeg (NHL) on Saturday. In four games with St. John’s this season, Mannino posted a 2-2 record with a 2.47 GAA, 0.902 save percentage and one shutout.
  • Things Are Getting Hairy: Several IceCaps players and staff will be participating in Movember, the annual prostate cancer awareness campaign. Fans can support the cause and donate to the team by visiting www.stjohnsicecaps.com.
