ST. JOHN'S, - Jason Jaffray scored 52 seconds into the game, and Eddie Pasquale made 36 saves to lead the St. John's IceCaps over the Manchester Monarchs 4-1 in American Hockey League action on Friday.

Jerome Samson scored two goals, and John Albert had one for the IceCaps (20-15-3), who won their second in a row.

Nick Deslauriers replied for the Monarchs (25-11-6).

Jaffray opened the scoring when he tapped in a rebound off an Andrew Gordon slapshot.

Albert made it 2-0 with a short-handed goal when he cut across the net and beat Jean-Francois Berube with a backhand shot at 7:56 of the second period.

Samson got his first goal of the game on the power play at 11:20 of the second, to make it 3-0.

The Monarchs got on the board at 14:17 of the second period when Jordan Weal tipped a pass across the crease to Deslauriers, who scored into a practically empty net.

Samson added an empty netter for the IceCaps with 14 seconds left.

Berube made 27 saves for Manchester.

St. John's was 1 for 4 with the man advantage, and the Monarchs were 0 for 5.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
