Game Report

It was the last game of a long road trip – the final road trip of the regular season.  And it will likely leave the IceCaps with a bitter taste in their mouth on a long flight back to St. John’s.

Not many positives can be taken from this game.  The first period looked hopeful with no penalties taken, shots even at six each.  Newcomer Tom Parisi had some decent shifts, and players put some good shots on Antoine Bibeau.

But then in the second period, the revolving door to the penalty box began – as did the goals against.  The IceCaps took eight trips to the box in total, and the Marlies managed to score on three of those man-advantage opportunities.  John Scott took a four-minute penalty for spearing which kicked off the power play goals for Toronto.

Gabriel Dumont left the ice for a bit in the second period after getting hit from behind and going awkwardly into the glass.  He would reappear in the third period.  Eddie Pasquale did the best he could on a night where he wasn’t getting much support, but the Marlies kept peppering him with pucks.

The IceCaps now have a quick turnaround as they fly back to St. John’s and get ready for a back-to-back series this weekend against the Lehigh Valley Phantoms.
