Game Report

There’s not much more to say about this game other than that it was a complete meltdown for the IceCaps.  Ben Scrivens made his St. John’s debut in net and it was not a good night for him or the team in front of him.

The IceCaps found themselves down 3-0 in the first period, and yet again their power play unit couldn’t convert any of the five man advantages opportunities they were given.  Jay Rosehill got a match penalty for a dangerous hit to the head on Josiah Didier which sent Didier violently into the glass.  He got right up, however, and continued play.

The rest of the game was more of the same with Martin Ouellette having another outstanding game, for being essentially the Phantoms’ third-string goaltender.  Cole Bardreau scored a soft shorthanded goal in the third period to put the IceCaps away for good.

The IceCaps continue their homestand next weekend when the Utica Comets come to town.
