Mouillierat scores three times as IceCaps down Wolf Pack for third straight win

HARTFORD, Conn. - Kael Mouillierat scored three times and set up one more as the St. John's IceCaps downed the host Hartford Wolf Pack 6-2 on Saturday in American Hockey League play.

Jason Jaffray had a goal and two assists for the IceCaps (23-16-3), who won their third game in a row, while Jerome Samson and Adam Lowry each scored once.

Jesper Fast scored twice for the Wolf Pack (13-22-5) and Oscar Lindberg assisted on both.

Michael Hutchinson made 24 saves for St. John's as Hartford's David LeNeveu turned away 21-of-27 shots in a losing cause.

Jaffray and Lowry scored to make it 2-0 for the IceCaps after 20 minutes of play and Mouillierat added two more for St John's within 53 seconds early in the second period.

Fast made it 4-1 late in the second and then added another early in the third to cut Hartford's deficit down to two. But, Samson made it 5-2 with a power-play goal at 2:24 and Mouillierat capped off his hat trick at 6:02.

The IceCaps went 1 for 6 on the power play while the Wolf Pack scored twice on five chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
