Game Report

Last night’s game was impressive. Tonight’s game…was not.  Sluggish, uninspired, and sloppy are good adjectives to describe this complete turnaround from the previous night.

One bright spot was newcomer Andrew Yogan. He scored his fourth goal of the season (and first with St. John’s) with a smooth wraparound in the first period.  That gives him a four-game point streak starting with his first game with the IceCaps.

Things went downhill quickly from there.  Penalties were minimal, though many could have been called on both sides.  The first Binghamton goal came after officials reviewed a scrum in front of the net and determined the puck crossed the goal crease.

It was a disappointing effort from a team which dominated the night before and who need every point possible to maintain contention in the playoff race.

The Icecaps next welcome the Hershey Bears to Mile One Centre on Saturday night for the first of two games over the weekend.
