PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Brenden Kichton scored a goal and added two assists to lead the St. John's IceCaps over the Providence Bruins 3-1 in American Hockey League action on Sunday.

Andrew Gordon and Jason Jaffray also scored for St. John's (24-16-3), which has won four straight and seven of its last 10 games.

Matt Lindblad had the lone goal for the Bruins (22-17-6). Chris Casto and Nick Johnson chipped in with assists.

After a scoreless first period, Gordon got the IceCaps on the board with a power-play goal at 4:31 of the second. But Lindblad responded for the Bruins five minutes later to tie the game 1-1.

Kichton's power-play goal at 3:53 of the third proved to be the winner, and Jaffray added an insurance goal six minutes later.
