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

It's not just going to happen on its own. We have to have guys commit to the areas we need to improve on. We're going to be better than last year but there is still a long way to go. But I really like the pieces and where we're headed.
