Will O'Neill and Andrew Gordon power IceCaps to 3-1 win over Monarchs

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.

Manchester's Scott Sabourin took a double minor for high sticking at the 16:56 mark of the second period.

O'Neill gave St. John's a 1-0 lead 27 seconds later, followed by Gordon 18:20 into the period.

The IceCaps scored on two of their four power plays, while the Monarchs went 0 for 2 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
