Josh Brittain leads the way as Admirals defeat IceCaps 3-2 in a shootout

NORFOLK, Va. - Josh Brittain scored in regulation and added the only goal of the shootout Friday as the St. John's IceCaps defeated the Norfolk Admirals 3-2 in the American Hockey League.

Emerson Etem had the other goal for Norfolk (15-19-3), which got 20 saves from Viktor Fasth.

Eric O'Dell and Richard Petiot replied in regulation for St. John's (16-20-3). Eddie Pasquale stopped 32 shots in taking the loss, while Raymond Sawada added two assists.

St. John's jumped out to a 2-0 lead midway through the first period with power-play goals just over four minutes apart.

But Brittain started the Norfolk rally with an even-strength goal at 9:01 of the second before Etem tied the score on the power play at 4:56 of the third.

St. John's went 2-for-5 with the man advantage, while Norfolk scored once on five chances.

Quote of the Day

It's about enjoying the moment. It's pretty cool to get that many people together and that excited about hockey to the point they really want you to mess up. They've got a ton of red jerseys and you have to sit back and appreciate people love hockey that much and you are the one out there who gets to play the game. Just try and stick with that respect for the game and also the mentality that for me it's just about entering the fight and seeing how long I can stay in it.
