RECAP | IceCaps Shade Phantoms 4-3 Hudon and Scherbak Each Collect a Goal and Two Assists Posted by Dave Salter on
ALLENTOWN, PA – Three point nights from Charles Hudon and Nikita Scherbak propelled the St. John’s IceCaps to a 4-3 win over the Lehigh Valley Phantoms Saturday night at the PPL Center in Allentown, PA.
Hudon and Scherbak each had a goal and two assists, while St. John’s forward Chris Terry registered a goal and a helper for the IceCaps, who spilt their six-game Pennsylvania road trip.
A late first period goal gave the home side the lead but the IceCaps rallied for three straight in the second – from Scherbak, Terry and Mark MacMillan respectively – to break open the contest. The Phantoms scored again before the second stanza came to a close and squared the contest 3-3 in the third before Hudon sealed the win at 15:27 of the final frame.
The IceCaps are in action again Tuesday (7:30 PM) as they return home to host the Binghamton Senators. Catch all the action with broadcaster Brian Rogers at www.stjohnsicecaps.com, KIXX Country 930AM and www.ahllive.com.
