Gagnon scores twice, Jaffrey has goal and two assists, IceCaps beat Devils 4-2

ALBANY, N.Y. - Aaron Gagnon scored a short-handed goal in the second period, and a power-play goal in the third, to lead the St. John's IceCaps to a 4-2 victory over the Albany Devils in American Hockey League action Wednesday.

Gagnon's first goal at 3:20 of the second period gave St. John's a 3-1 lead, and his second, at 8:25 of the third, made it 4-1 while extending his point streak to a franchise-record 11 games.

Joe Whitney opened the scoring for Albany, but Jason Jaffrey tied it for St. John's (28-33-5) midway through the first period just after a power play expired. Jaffrey also had a pair of assists.

Eric O'Dell set an IceCaps record when he scored for the sixth game in a row to make it 2-1 on a power play in the opening minute of the second period. The goal was his 25th of the season, which is also a franchise record.

Brandon Burlon closed out the scoring for Albany (27-26-11).

Mark Dekanich made 21 saves for the IceCaps, while Jeff Frazee stopped 17 shots for the Devils.

St. John's was 2 for 7 on the power play, while Albany was 1 for 6.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
