Craig Cunningham scores on short-handed breakaway as Bruins edge IceCaps 3-2

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Craig Cunningham scored a short-handed goal as the Providence Bruins edged the St. John's IceCaps 3-2 in American Hockey League action Tuesday.

Matt Lindblad and Anthony Camara also scored for the Bruins (24-18-6), while Malcolm Subban stopped 27 shots.

Adam Lowry and Ben Chiarot replied for the IceCaps (26-17-3).

The Bruins opened the scoring 27 seconds into the second period when Nick Johnson passed out front and Lindblad scored a low one-time slapshot.

The IceCaps equalized when Jerome Samson fired a point shot, which was tipped home by Lowry with lots of traffic in front of the net 4:33 into the second period on the power play.

Cunningham scored with a high blocker backhand on a shorthanded breakaway at the 11:10 mark of the third period.

The Bruins took a two-goal lead when Camara tapped the puck into a practically-empty net, as IceCaps goalie Michael Hutchinson was caught out of position 15:07 into the third.

Chiarot pulled the IceCaps within one off a wrist shot with 3:17 left in regulation.

Hutchinson finished with 28 saves for the IceCaps.

Quote of the Day

I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
