ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - John Albert and Kael Mouillierat each scored two goals to lead the St. John's IceCaps to a 6-2 rout of the Binghamton Senators Friday night in American Hockey League action.

Adam Lowry and Eric O'Dell also scored for the IceCaps (33-19-4).

Buddy Robinson and Jean-Gabriel Pageau replied for Binghamton (33-18-4).

IceCaps goalie Michael Hutchinson made 26 saves, while his Binghamton counterpart, Nathan Lawson, stopped 28 shots.

Lowry opened the scoring, putting the IceCaps ahead on a backhander five-hole in front of the net at the 5:09 mark of the first period.

Albert added to the lead 12:21 into the first, cleaning up a Jason Jaffray rebound on the power play.

Thirty seconds later, Mouillierat put the IceCaps up 3-0, finishing off a pass out front, beating Lawson high.

Mouillierat added his second of the game with a high wrister 10:18 into the second, from the right faceoff dot on the power play.

Albert added his second of the game, stripping a defender of the puck and scoring on a breakaway after a quick backhand-to-forehand move with 31 seconds left in the second period.

O'Dell added insult to injury, scoring a penalty shot with a quick shot to fool Lawson 2:38 into the third.

Robinson put the Senators on the scoreboard with a high blocker wristshot at the 7:53 mark of the third.

Quote of the Day

Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
