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.

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.
