Jason Jaffray scored his third of the season to lead IceCaps past Monarchs, 3-2

MANCHESTER, N.H. - Jason Jaffray's third goal of the season proved to be the game-winner as the St. John's IceCaps held off the Manchester Monarchs 3-2 in American Hockey League action on Friday night.

Carl Klingberg and Andrew Gordon rounded out the IceCaps' offence and Eric O'Dell chipped in with two assists for his team-leading sixth and seventh points of the season.

Linden Very and Nick Deslauriers scored for the Monarchs (5-1-3), who lost their first game in regulation time this season.

St. John's goaltender Eddie Pasquale made 25 saves while his counterpart in Manchester's net, Martin Jones, stopped 28 shots.

Very opened the scoring with his second goal of the season at 4:09 of the first period, but the IceCaps (3-3-1) responded 39 seconds later with Klingberg's first of the year. Gordon broke the tie with a power-play goal six minutes later.

Jaffray scored at 9:20 of the second period to make it a 3-1 game for the visitors.

Deslauriers put the game within one with his third goal of the season at 15:43 of the third period, but the comeback attempt stopped there.

St. John's was 1-for-4 with the man advantage while Manchester was blanked on two power-play chances.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
