Despite getting on the board first, the St. John’s IceCaps could not respond to two-third period goals by the Binghamton Senators as the club fell to a 2-1 loss Friday evening.
In the first period, both clubs had some good chances, but neither team managed to get on the board as both goaltenders stood tall to produce a scoreless first period.
In the second, the IceCaps would draw first blood as captain Jason Jaffray put the blue and white up 1-0 with his 18th goal of the season at 16:59 of the middle frame.
Just over 3 minutes later, the Senators would find net again as Shane Prince would beat Beskorowany with a goal of his own to make it 2-1 in favour of the Senators.
Despite a late charge from the IceCaps, they were unable to find the equalizer late in the game as the Senators skated away with a 2-1 victory.
Andrew Hammond made 40 of 41 saves to pick up the victory, meanwhile, Beskorowany made 38 saves in a losing cause.
The IceCaps will head to Hershey where they will take on the Bears Saturday evening, meanwhile the Senators will head to Syracuse to take on the Crunch.
