Gibson Leads Admirals to Win Over IceCaps
John Gibson made 42 saves and Nic Kerdiles scored twice, as the Norfolk Admirals defeated the St. John\u2019s IceCaps 3-1 Tuesday night at Mile One Centre to take Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series.

ST. JOHN’S, NL - John Gibson made 42 saves and Nic Kerdiles scored twice, as the Norfolk Admirals defeated the St. John’s IceCaps 3-1 Tuesday night at Mile One Centre to take Game 1 of their Eastern Conference Semifinal series.

John Kurtz had the game-winner for the Admirals. Andrew Gordon scored the lone goal for the IceCaps, while Michael Hutchinson stopped 23-of-25 shots in a losing effort.

The Admirals struck first in the opening frame, on a goal from Kerdiles at 10:14. Skating into the circle, Kerdiles took the corner feed from Andre Petersson before one-timing it blocker side past Hutchinson to make it 1-0.

After a scoreless second period, Gordon scored the equalizer 3:20 into the third. Getting a piece of Josh Morrissey’s shot from the point, Gordon tipped it past Gibson to tie things up at a goal apiece.

Norfolk restored their lead at the seven-minute mark, however, when they stormed the crease to follow up on a rebound as Kurtz banged it home to make it 2-1.

Then, with Hutchinson pulled for the extra attacker, Kerdiles scored the empty netter with 14 seconds remaining to seal the deal for Norfolk.

The IceCaps look to tie up their Eastern Conference Semifinal Wednesday night at Mile One Centre (7:30 p.m. NT), when they take on the Admirals in Game 2.
