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.
Well, for me this one's concerning, the way we performed. Because three games in, playing a desperate team on the road, I was expecting something else than this. Right now, I'm just disappointed. The other games, I thought we did some things that you can build off your game. There wasn't a lot accomplished in tonight's game.
