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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
