Michael Hutchinson's 26 saves lead IceCaps to 2-0 shutout against Monarchs

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Michael Hutchinson's 26-save shutout carried the St.John's IceCaps to a 2-0 win over the Manchester Monarchs on Monday night in American Hockey League action.

Blair Riley and Andrew Gordon scored for the IceCaps (21-16-3).

The IceCaps opened the scoring 13:23 into the first period, when Riley carried the puck around the net, circled out front and ripped a wrist shot top corner from the slot.

Gordon scored off a rebound from a Will O'Neill slapshot 14:06 into the third period, after Jean-Francois Berube was caught out of position after doing well to make the first save.

Berube finished with 25 saves for the Monarchs (26-12-6).

Both teams were 0 for 3 with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

I'm just excited about the opportunity. I've been on the ice earlier than usual and in the weight room, pushing around a little more weights than usual. Every day I go into a workout with a smile on my face and ready to go. When you do have a little more responsibility, you want to take your lunch pail and get ready to work.
