Game Report

After a deflating loss in Albany on Wednesday night, the IceCaps bounced back to play a much tighter, more defensive game on Friday night in Binghamton.

With a depleted lineup due to multiple injuries and/or callups, the St. John’s team came out strong, shooting the puck often at Senators goaltender Chris Driedger.  The team also played a very disciplined game, serving only two minor penalties in the entire game.

Binghamton lit the lamp first, with a power play goal in the final minute of the first period.  The IceCaps continued to pressure offensively, but couldn’t seem to find a way through Driedger until Markus Eisenschmid finally potted a goal off a pass from captain Max Friberg with about two minutes remaining in regulation.

That effort was enough to earn the IceCaps one point as they headed to overtime.  The extra minutes were played exceptionally well by the visiting team, who controlled the puck for a good portion of the five minutes.  Charlie Lindgren came up big with some outstanding efforts between the pipes.

In the shootout, Stefan Matteau managed to score on Driedger but Jason Akeson and Casey Bailey both managed to get the puck through Lindgren to nab the victory for Binghmaton.

Among the new faces in the IceCaps lineup was John McCarron, older brother of Mike McCarron, who played a strong game and looked very comfortable with his new team.  Anthony Camara and Alexandre Ranger also made their season debut with St. John’s.

The IceCaps will finish off their month-long holiday road trip on Saturday night when they revisit Syracuse to take on the Crunch.
