Jeff Parsons, St. John’s IceCaps
The IceCaps are in Portland, MA tonight for the first of five straight road games, three of which will be played this weekend. Join us for today's GameDay Thread, which we promise will be filled with sarcasm and dry wit.
Season series tied at 1-1-0-0.
St. John's IceCaps leading scorers:
Alexander Burmistrov- 8GP, 1G, 5A, 6PTS
Spencer Machacek- 8GP, 3G, 2A, 5PTS
Zach Redmond- 8GP, 3G, 2A, 5PTS
Portland Pirates leading scorers:
Alexandre Bolduc- 7GP, 6G, 5A, 11PTS
Chris Conner- 7GP, 5G, 5A, 10PTS
Rob Klinkhammer- 7GP, 3G, 7A, 10PTS
Tonight the IceCaps' will exchange pleasantries with the Portland Pirates for the third time in two weeks as they take to the ice in the Cumberland County Civic Center later tonight.
The IceCaps have struggled in the scoring department this year and, save for an eight goal outburst against these same Pirates last week, have only scored thirteen goals in the seven other games they've played. Winning while scoring 1.86 goals per game is difficult in any league, so it will be paramount for the IceCaps' to rekindle some of last Tuesday's scoring magic starting tonight.
