SPRINGFIELD, Mass. - Ivan Telegin scored a quick goal in overtime as the St. John's IceCaps beat the Springfield Falcons 3-2 in American Hockey League play Saturday.

IceCaps goaltender Eddie Pasquale made 21 saves, while at the other end Allen York stopped 21 shots for the Falcons.

Quote of the Day

You know what? We've played in some pretty special buildings along this playoff run so far. You start in Detroit, you go to Montreal, you come here … I think it's the first team to beat three Original Six teams to get to the Final if I'm not mistaken. That says how tough the road has been. Those are tough places to win.
