The theme for the IceCaps lately seems to be win a game, then lose a game. It was another tight matchup with the Hershey Bears for this afternoon game, but a late goal in the waning minutes of play gave the visitors a tally in the win column.
Hershey went up early in the game but in the second period captain Gabriel Dumont beat Justin Peters after being set up by Morgan Ellis and Bud Holloway on the power play. The teams continued to trade goals, and next up for the IceCaps was the second goal of the season for John Scott who slid home a rebound to tie the game.
Eddie Pasquale looked mostly good in net, but was a bit of a spectator on the second goal against. Penalties also became an issue with St. John’s taking three of four unsportsmanlike conduct minors.
The IceCaps now head back out on the road for the final trip of the regular season, starting with a tilt against the Comets in Utica on Friday night.
