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.

Once again, it shows character in this dressing room. Once again, there's no quitting in here. We all wanted this so bad and we worked so hard to get home-ice advantage and we weren't going to let this one slide.
