Game Report

After a complete breakdown the previous night, losing 5-1 to the Portland Pirates, the St. John’s IceCaps took to the Mile One Centre ice on Saturday looking to bounce back quickly.  But it seemed that they were stuck in the same sluggish cycle from the night before, despite a massive amount of line-juggling done by the coach.

Sylvain Lefebvre moved Michael McCarron back to the first line, where he also placed newcomer Max Friberg on right wing.  Jacob de la Rose found himself promoted to the second line, which bumped Markus Eisenschmid up to the third line.  Charles Hudon was shifted to Eisenschmid’s left wing after centering the first line for the last couple of weeks.

The Pirates came out buzzing in the first period, scoring their first goal just three minutes into the game.  Five minutes later they earned a shorthanded goal, quickly followed by a power play goal.  Eddie Pasquale was immediately pulled from the game after giving up three goals on just seven shots.

Zach Fucale gave a strong performance in relief despite giving up a goal shortly into the second period.  The IceCaps attempted some physicality to muster a spark with their teammates with Dalton Thrower, Gabriel Dumont, and Jeremy Gregoire all dropping the gloves, but to no avail.  Dumont did, however, connect with Eisenschmid and de la Rose late in the third period to get St. John’s on the board.

The IceCaps return to home ice on Tuesday night when the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins come to town for a back-to-back series.
