St. John’s scores nine goals in two-game week; club visits Hamilton before returning home to face Manchester. The IceCaps rediscovered their offensive touch in a light, two-game week. St. John’s defeated the Connecticut Whale 5-1 Wednesday – avenging a pair of home losses against the Whale earlier this month – on the strength of Eric O’Dell’s second career hat trick and a four-assist game from Kael Mouillierat. Sunday in Toronto, the IceCaps fell behind 5-1 after two periods but battled back with three third period tallies to fall just short in a comeback bid, losing 5-4 to the Marlies at Ricoh Coliseum.

WEEK IN REVIEW:

Wednesday, February 20 – St. John’s IceCaps 5 Connecticut Whale 1

The St. John’s IceCaps rebounded from a tough loss on Sunday to trump the Connecticut Whale 5-1 at XL Center Wednesday night.

win. St. John’s started fast and never looked back, potting three goals in the opening frame and clinching the win with a pair in the third. The IceCaps outshot the Whale 37-26 overall and controlled the flow for most of the game, using an aggressive forecheck to keep Connecticut on its heels for the majority of the contest.

Sunday, February 24 – Toronto Marlies 5 St. John’s IceCaps 4

The St. John’s IceCaps were defeated by the Toronto Marlies 5-4 Sunday afternoon at Ricoh Coliseum.

Despite sporting the Marlies leads of 4-0 and 5-1, the IceCaps nearly made an incredible comeback, battling back to score three times in third period but ultimately falling just short.

The Marlies scored five times in the second period with first star Jake Gardiner factoring in on three of those tallies, scoring once on the power play and adding two assists. Dylan Yeo and Ryan Hamilton each had a pair of assists for Toronto, while Mark Owuya got the win after stopping 36-of-40 shots.
