ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Carl Klingberg scored two goals and Eddie Pasquale stopped 20 shots as the St. John's IceCaps blanked the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins 5-0 on Friday in American Hockey League action.

Zach Redmond, Jerome Samson and Andrew Gordon also scored for the IceCaps (12-9-3).

Klingberg scored again midway through the second period, finishing a pass from JC Lipon, who was behind the net, to make it 2-0 St. John's.

Redmond made it 3-0 before the second period was through when he scored on the power play.

Samson and Gordon scored 1:05 apart in the third period to complete St. John's offence.

Hartzell made 24 saves for Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

The IceCaps went 2 for 5 on the power play while the Penguins failed to score on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I've never seen anything like that. The great thing is I don't know how many times guys bailed me out where they had to score to keep it alive and they did every time. It was amazing. It's not the way we draw it up, to go 20 rounds here, but obviously it's a big win.
