Despite climbing back from a two-goal deficit, the St. John's IceCaps dropped Game 3 against the Syracuse Crunch by a score of 3-2 on Wednesday.
After giving up two goals in the first period, Sylvain Lefebvre's troops leveled the playing field in a span of 28 seconds in the middle frame thanks to contributions from Zach Redmond and Stefan Matteau, the latter netting his second goal of the series.
The home squad put a third one by Charlie Lindgren at the end of the second period to put away the game. The IceCaps' netminder registered 22 saves on the night.
Charles Hudon earned an assist in the loss, bumping his playoff point total to four in three games, tops on the Canadiens' farm club so far.
The IceCaps will try to even up the series in Game 4 on Friday night in Syracuse.
