Holland scores first with Marlies en route to 3-2 win over IceCaps

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Two quick goals led the Toronto Marlies past the St. John's IceCaps 3-2 in American Hockey League action Friday.

Petter Granberg, Sam Carrick and Peter Holland scored for the Marlies (20-11-3), who had a pair of goals in the first three minutes of the game.

Andrew Gordon and Kael Mouillierat replied for St. John's (18-15-3).

Granberg opened the scoring, finding the net through traffic with a shot that changed direction on the way through just 1:21 into the game.

At the 3:02 mark of the first, Holland scored an easy tap-in as IceCaps goalie Eddie Pasquale was caught out of his net by some crisp passing on the power play.

Carrick tipped home a Josh Leivo point shot for the Marlies with 1:17 left in the second.

Mouillierat scored a one-timer in the slot off a cross-ice pass from JC Lipon to open the scoring for the IceCaps at the 5:17 mark of the third period on the power play.

Andrew Gordon picked up his own rebound and beat a sprawling Drew MacIntyre to bring the score to within one for the IceCaps with 6:34 left in the third.

Pasquale made 27 saves for the IceCaps. MacIntyre stopped 31 for Toronto.

Quote of the Day

He's a special guy. Obviously we are lucky to have him. Just his talent, I'm not surprised anymore. You get to see this guy every practice, and you know what he's able to do. Obviously, it's pretty special for a guy that young to score a hat trick in playoffs, this type of a game too. Really happy for him.
