Josh Lunden scores twice as IceCaps come from behind to defeat Pirates 5-4

PORTLAND, Maine - Josh Lunden scored twice, including the winner, as the St. John's IceCaps erased an early two-goal deficit to come from behind and defeat the host Portland Pirates 5-4 on Saturday in American Hockey League action.

Jerome Samson had a goal and two assists for the IceCaps (46-23-7) while John Albert and Kael Mouillierat each had a goal and an assist.

Brandon Yip had a pair of goals for the Pirates (24-39-13), who finish the regular season on a nine-game losing streak, and Tobias Rieder and Brandon Gormley added a goal apiece.

St. John's netminder Michael Hutchinson made 27 saves for the win as Portland's Louis Domingue stopped 31-of-36 shots in a losing cause.

The IceCaps went 1 for 5 on the power play while the Pirates scored once on three chances with the man advantage.

St. John's finish the regular season fourth in the Western Conference and will face the Albany Devils in Round 1 of the AHL playoffs.

Quote of the Day

I don't know how he does it. I don't know how he gets his body parallel with the player and pulls it through his legs like that. I know he's tried it a couple times in practice and it's never worked, so how he does it in a game, it's incredible.
