MANCHESTER, N.H. - Martin Jones turned away 40 shots through 65 minutes and four more in the shootout as the Manchester Monarchs edged the visiting St. John's IceCaps 4-3 on Sunday in American Hockey League action.

Nick Shore and Jordan Weal both scored in the shootout for the Monarchs (34-14-7), who extended their win streak to four games.

Nick Deslauriers scored twice in regulation for Manchester while Linden Vey added the other.

Carl Klingberg, Adam Lowry and John Albert supplied the scoring for the IceCaps (28-19-4), who are on a three-game slide, and Michael Hutchinson made 21 saves in a losing cause.

Manchester went 0 for 3 on the power play while St. John's failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Quote of the Day

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
