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.

It's something that you don't really envision starting this way, but when you put the work in you don't feel like it's unwarranted. You definitely don't envision it unfolding this way, but you do think you can be successful at this level.
