ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - The St. John's IceCaps scored by committee Tuesday night to rout the Syracuse Crunch 6-2 in American Hockey League action.

Jason Jaffray, Adam Lowry, Kris Fredheim, Will O'Neill, Carl Klingberg and Ryan Schnell scored for the IceCaps (13-10-3).

Mike Angelidis and Cedric Paquette answered for the Crunch (11-9-3).

Jaffray opened the scoring for the IceCaps, connecting on a one-time slapshot 8:23 into the first period that beat Kristers Gudlevskis high over the blocker on the power play.

Captain Angelidis equalized for Syracuse, tapping in a cross-crease pass on a 2-on-1 rush at the 11:10 mark of the first.

Lowry made it 2-1 IceCaps with 1:57 left in the first, sneaking a wrist shot five hole from the slot through traffic.

At the 7:05 mark of the second, Fredheim scored another power-play goal for the IceCaps, hitting a slapshot high blocker from the point.

Twelve seconds later, IceCaps forward Schnell beat Gudlevskis with a wrister, chasing the goalie from the net.

O'Neill scored for the IceCaps with 10 seconds left in the second, finishing a one-timed slapshot from the point.

Paquette scored high glove to make the game 5-2 at 9:07 in the third.

Klingberg then scored a high wrister with 30.6 seconds left in the game.

Gudlevskis made 16 saves for Syracuse, while Cedrick Desjardins stopped 25 in relief. Jussi Olkinuora stopped 13 for the IceCaps.

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.
