Adam Lowry scores twice for St. John's in 5-4 shootout win over Toronto

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Adam Lowry scored two goals and added an assist as the St. John's IceCaps beat the Toronto Marlies 5-4 in a shootout Saturday night in American Hockey League action.

JC Lipon won it in the shootout for the IceCaps with a wrist shot off the toe-drag to beat Marlies goalie Drew MacIntyre high.

Carl Klingberg and Patrice Cormier also scored for the IceCaps (18-15-3).

Peter Holland scored two for the Marlies (20-11-3), while Wade MacLeod and T.J. Brennan added one each.

The Marlies opened the scoring 23 seconds into the game as MacLeod finished off a rebound chance on the backhand.

Lowry levelled the score for the IceCaps with a wrist shot in front of the net on a cross-crease pass 3:54 into the first period.

With 2:42 left in the first Lowry scored another, tipping home a Will O'Neill point shot in front of the net on the power play.

Cormier won position in front and tapped in a goal 44 seconds into the second period off a nice feed from Brenden Kichton.

The Marlies shortened the gap to one as Josh Leivo made a nifty backhand pass and found Holland open in the slot at the 3:06 mark of the third period on the power play.

Lowry carried the puck to the net at the 9:43 mark of the third and passed across to Klingberg, who scored on the doorstep.

Brennan scored a wrist shot high blocker to bring the Marlies within one less than a minute later on the power play.

Holland then fooled IceCaps goalie Eddie Pasquale high, as Pasquale misplayed a puck that seemed to be going over the net at 12:02 in the third, to force extra time.

Pasquale finished with 35 saves, while MacIntyre stopped 22 for Toronto.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
