Mouillierat and Jaffray score in shootout to lift IceCaps over Bruins

ST JOHNS, N.L. - Kael Mouillierat and Jason Jaffray both scored in the shootout as the St. John's IceCaps edged the visiting Providence Bruins 4-3 on Wednesday in American Hockey League action.

Mouillierat scored with a forehand-to-backhand deke, and Jaffray showed patience with a toe-drag before scoring top shelf.

Paul Postma had a goal and an assist for the IceCaps (27-17-3) while Adam Lowry and Andrew Gordon added a goal apiece.

Nick Johnson, Tyler Randell and Alexander Khokhlachev replied for the Bruins (24-18-7).

The Bruins opened the scoring through Johnson, who buried a one-time slapshot from the face-off dot 8:18 into the first period during 4-on-4 play.

Lowry equalized for the IceCaps, tipping home a Blair Riley slapshot from the point with 1:51 left in the first.

Just 3:44 into the second period, Postma found space in the slot and ripped a wrist-shot hard and low, which deflected off Gordon.

Khokhlachev tied it for the Bruins, beating IceCaps goalie Eddie Pasquale five-hole with a wrist shot from a wide angle at the 14:16 mark of the second.

Postma gave the IceCaps a 3-2 lead with a wrist shot from just inside the blueline that Bruins goalie Malcolm Subban misplayed with his glove with 1:08 remaining in the second.

At the 6:32 mark of the third period, St. John's turned the puck over on its blue line while on the power play and Randell scored backhand, low blocker on a partial breakaway.

Pasquale made 30 saves for St. John's. Subban stopped 29 shots for Providence.

The IceCaps went 1 for 6 on the power play while the Bruins failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.
