Shots on Goal: Ice Cap’s Dekanich Falls to Monarch’s Jones

[imagebrowser id=101]

The Manchester Monarchs ended their six-game winless streak with a 5-2 victory over the St. John’s Ice Caps Friday night.

This was one of those game that Mark Dekanich probably wishes he could have a do-over. In addition to the Monarchs ringing up five goals, the St. John’s backstop got run over hard a number of times throughout the night, three times in the third period alone.

The game started out on a high note for the Ice Caps, riding a four-game winless streak of their own, as they were first on the scoresheet when Eric O’dell hammered home a rebound on the doorstep past Martin Jones at 1:44 of the second period.

Tyler Toffoli netted the first of his two tallies with just over a minute to go in the second when he found a loose puck in front of the net and flipped it past Dekanich to even the game at 1-1.

Just :34 seconds later, Monarchs forward Anthony Stewart scored on a breakaway to put Manchester on top 2-1.

Brandon Kozun gave Manchester a two goal advantage, and the eventual game winner, at 3:22 when he beat Dekanich with a wrister low glove side.

A Jason Jaffrey score for St. John’s at the 5:58 mark of the third period brought the Ice Caps within a goal at 3-2.

The rest of the third frame was all Monarchs as both Kozun and Toffoli each potted their second goals of the contest making the final score 5-2.

Dekanich (7-9-0) took the loss stopping 28 of 33 shots. Jones (12-16-3) halted 22 shots for his 12th win.
