MANCHESTER, N.H. - The St. John's IceCaps overcame an early deficit to score four unanswered goals and beat the Manchester Monarchs 5-3 in American Hockey League play Saturday.

Down 2-0 after the first period, the IceCaps' offence exploded in the second with goals from Carl Klingberg, Aaron Gagnon and Patrice Cormier.

A power-play goal by Spencer Machacek at 8:24 in the third gave St. John's (22-27-3) a 4-2 lead.

Brandon Kozun got one back for Manchester at 14:40 but Jason Jaffray scored into an empty net to cap the scoring.

Kozun finished with two goals for the Monarchs (22-23-5), while Tanner Pearson opened the scoring 3:55 into the game.

IceCaps goaltender Chris Carrozzi made 15-of-16 saves in relief of starter Mark Dekanich, who was pulled after giving up two goals on five shots.

Martin Jones meanwhile stopped 33 shots for Manchester.

Quote of the Day

You could see out there that everybody was willing to compete, to sacrifice, even blocking shots to the end. Even in the third when we were up 5-0, guys were still working hard and blocking shots That's a nice feeling also for the future.
