Hartford, CT, November 4, 2011 – The Connecticut Whale fell to the St. John’s IceCaps, 6-3, Friday night before 4,028 at the XL Center in Hartford.
St. John’s scored twice in 38 seconds midway through the third period, as part of a four-goal frame which erased a 3-2 deficit en route to a 6-3 win over the Whale.
“Sometimes it comes down to second effort, recognition, desperation, things like that,” said Whale coach Ken Gernander. “We got some big goals at the end of the second period and then we really didn’t force the issue and played first-effort for the last 20 minutes.”
Connecticut had gotten on the board early, as John Mitchell scored his fourth of the season on a backhander just 4:03 into the first period. His shot found its way past sprawled-out St. John’s goaltender Edward Pasquale, as Mats Zuccarello’s bid was kicked out to the Whale center. Jonathan Audy-Marchessault also received an assist on the goal.
Carl Klingberg tied it for St. John’s at 13:58 with...

Tobias Enstrom is out indefinitely with a broken collarbone, Ken Wiebe of The Winnipeg Sun reports. The injury came in Monday's game against the Florida Panthers when Enstrom was taken down by a hit from Florida Panthers forward Jack Skille. In my view, Tobias Enstrom's skills were under-appreciated with the Atlanta Thrasher organization. This is a player who is a prime...
In a 3-0 loss to the Winnipeg Jets last night, the Islanders managed 34 shots on goal, but failed to get one past goalie Ondrej Pavelec. I give full credit to a stellar performance by Pavelec, but eventually the Islanders need to put the puck in the net. Having 34 shots on goal is certainly an improvement over the lackluster performances over the last few games, but in order...
The Winnipeg Jets are at the halfway point of their seven game road trip, the longest for the entire inaugural season for version 2.0 of the team. Regardless of whether it is road weariness or early fatigue, the Jets are without some bodies now as injuries mount. The latest casualty is Tobias Enstrom who has returned to Winnipeg after taking a hard hit From Jack Skille of the Panthers...
Evander Kane was sky high when he learned how pumped fans were to have the Jets back in Canada. On a commercial flight over the summer to Winnipeg, Kane was recognized as one of the stars of the reborn franchise and became more popular among his fellow passengers than the free peanuts. Once he landed, about a dozen Jets fans waited outside his gate to greet him.
Ondrej Pavelec stopped all 34 shots he faced, and Evander Kane provided all the offense the Winnipeg Jets needed in a 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders on Thursday night.
It’s a chilly, windy morning here in Winnipeg today, but Jets fans here are positively glowing and giddy after last night’s 3-0 victory over the New York Islanders in front of, well, a crowd. Or at least two-thirds of one. After seeing the masses packed into the MTS Centre for Jets home games, it’s still a bit of a shock to see so many empty seats (although it’s not shocking...
