Game Report

It’s been a week since the IceCaps had back-to-back win momentum against the Utica Comets and they seemed to lose a lot of energy during that time.

Tonight’s game was lackluster, at best.  No energy, no penalties until the third period, and not a lot in the way of shots.

Hartford, still in the hunt for a playoff position, tallied goal after goal and found themselves up 3-0 in the final frame.  A power play goal by Michael McCarron put the IceCaps on the board with Bud Holloway and Morgan Ellis assisting on the goal.  With that helper, Holloway tied his personal best for points in a season (61) and set a new team record for most assists in a season (42).

Zach Fucale had some tremendous saves in net, but the Wolf Pack kept coming and St. John’s just couldn’t muster anything close to a comeback.

The IceCaps close out their season on Saturday with one more game against the Hartford Wolf Pack.
