ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - John Albert scored twice to lead the St. John's IceCaps to a 3-1 win over the Springfield Falcons in American Hockey League action Saturday.

Jerome Samson also scored for the IceCaps (42-22-6).

Albert opened the scoring for the IceCaps when he picked up a loose puck off a rebound and buried a low wrist shot 4:34 into the game.

Samson made it 2-0 IceCaps at 10:55 of the first. Defenceman Brenden Kichton pinched in behind the net before moving the puck out front to Samson, who scored a quick backhander.

Albert added his second, finishing off a 2-on-1 give-and-go with captain Jason Jaffray 15:13 into the second period.

Tyler Beskorowany made 23 saves for the IceCaps. Jeremy Smith stopped 28 shots for the Falcons.

Quote of the Day

I mean, hockey had to change the rules because of Marty, and that's impressive. I got two Stanley Cup rings because of the guy. Look at the banners of [Scott Niedermayer, Scott Stevens and Ken Daneyko] and Marty is right up there when you think about the New Jersey Devils; he was part of the core group and he'll go down as one of the greatest goalies ever.
