The Night That Was: Stars Melt IceCaps

Derek Leung

The IceCaps lost and a lot happened between Friday and Monday in the NHL.

Recap:

St. John's IceCaps 3 Texas Stars 6

The 'Caps struggled out of the gate and Michael Hutchinson had a Pavelecian second period (3 goals on 4 shots). If he plays more like himself than his Jets contemporary the 'Caps have a chance.
