The IceCaps opened the New Year with a pair of tough one-goal losses to divisional rival the Manchester Monarchs Friday and Saturday at Mile One Centre. St. John’s pressed hard for the tie on Friday, scoring with less than two minutes to play to narrow the gap to 3-2, but it was too little, too late. Saturday, Carl Klingberg scored twice, including the tying goal in the third period, but the IceCaps were unable to dispose of the Monarchs in overtime, losing 3-2 once again. St. John’s hosts the Toronto Marlies for the first time this season this coming Friday and Saturday as they look to snap their franchise-high six-game home losing streak.

ICE-CAPSules

No More Lockout: The NHL and NHLPA announced Sunday that they reached a tentative agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement, meaning teams will begin a shortened schedule later this month.Training camps for NHL clubs are likely to begin this coming weekend, and it is expected that several IceCaps players will be invited to Winnipeg to battle for the remaining open spots on the Jets.

Postma Producing: D Paul Postma has been producing offensively since the Christmas break ended. The All-Star rearguard has four points (2G, 2A) in his last four games and is tied for the team lead in scoring with 18 points. Postma’s seven shots on goal in Saturday’s overtime loss vs. MCH were a team game-high this season.

Chiarot on the Offensive: After recording just one assist in his first 26 games, D Ben Chiarot has found his offensive game of late. The rookie defenceman has four points (1G, 3A) in his last five games and has been featured on a pairing with Paul Postma.

Klingberg Breaks Through: A lengthy goalless drought ended Saturday for F Carl Klingberg, who potted a pair of goals to snap a streak of 15 games without a tally. Despite his futility, Klingberg leads the club in plus/minus with a +5 rating and sits tied for second in goal scoring with seven.

Quick Hits: St. John’s has lost six straight home games, with their last win coming back on Nov. 25 in a 6-0 victory over the Providence Bruins… Saturday’s loss was just the IceCaps first defeat in overtime this season. The club is 4-0-1-1 in games that extend past regulation time… St. John’s is 12-5-1-1 in one-goal games this season…The IceCaps are 4-5-1-1 vs. the Atlantic Division.
