Svedberg makes 26 saves as Bruins use three-goal first period to topple IceCaps

ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - Niklas Svedberg stopped 26 shots as the Providence Bruins edged the visiting St. John's IceCaps 3-2 on Friday in American Hockey League action.

Mike Moore, Craig Cunningham and Justin Florek scored in the first period for the Bruins (26-18-7), who are 4-0-1 in their last five contests, while Alexander Khokhlachev chipped in with two assists.

Carl Klingberg and John Albert replied for the IceCaps (28-18-3) and Will O'Neill assisted on both of his club's goals.

Michael Hutchinson turned aside 22-of-25 shots for St. John's.

Moore opened the scoring at 8:01 of the first period for Providence. Klingberg, however, tied the game less than two minutes later for the IceCaps.

Cunningham regained the lead for the Bruins with a power-play goal at 12:48 and Florek added the eventual winner at 18:09.

Albert brought St. John's within a goal when he scored shorthanded 3:21 into the second period.

Providence went 1 for 5 on the power play while the IceCaps failed to score on three chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

The groove of being behind a bench is going to be interesting at first, but thank God we have a few exhibition games to get rid of those cobwebs. Overall the excitement of it all and the freshness and coming back refreshed, all those things are going to be assets. If [the players] come ready to give their best effort in practice and games, good things are going to happen. I'm always looking for results. It's not always on the scoreboard. It's winning and building something.
