MANCHESTER, N.H. - Will O'Neill and Andrew Gordon scored power-play goals less than a minute apart as the St. John's IceCaps topped the Manchester Monarchs 3-1 on Saturday in American Hockey League play.

Carl Klingberg scored early in the third period to give the IceCaps (16-12-3) a 3-0 lead. Eddie Pasquale made 35 saves for the win.

Nick Deslauriers had a goal with 53 seconds left in the game, but it was too late for the Monarchs (21-7-5). Jean-Francois Berube stopped 22 shots.

Quote of the Day

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
