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, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
