shootout as the St. Johns IceCaps edged the visit

#1
ST JOHNS, N.L. - Kael Mouillierat and Jason Jaffray both scored in the shootout as the St. Johns IceCaps edged the visiting Providence Bruins 4-3 on Wednesday in American Hockey League action. Mouillierat scored with a forehand-to-backhand deke, and Jaffray showed patience with a toe-drag before scoring top shelf. Paul Postma had a goal and an assist for the IceCaps (27-17-3) while Adam Lowry and Andrew Gordon added a goal apiece. Nick Johnson, Tyler Randell and Alexander Khokhlachev replied for the Bruins (24-18-7). The Bruins opened the scoring through Johnson, who buried a one-time slapshot from the face-off dot 8:18 into the first period during 4-on-4 play. Lowry equalized for the IceCaps, tipping home a Blair Riley slapshot from the point with 1:51 left in the first. Just 3:44 into the second period, Postma found space in the slot and ripped a wrist-shot hard and low, which deflected off Gordon. Khokhlachev tied it for the Bruins, beating IceCaps goalie Eddie Pasquale five-hole with a wrist shot from a wide angle at the 14:16 mark of the second. Postma gave the IceCaps a 3-2 lead with a wrist shot from just inside the blueline that Bruins goalie Malcolm Subban misplayed with his glove with 1:08 remaining in the second. At the 6:32 mark of the third period, St. Johns turned the puck over on its blue line while on the power play and Randell scored backhand, low blocker on a partial breakaway. Pasquale made 30 saves for St. Johns. Subban stopped 29 shots for Providence. The IceCaps went 1 for 6 on the power play while the Bruins failed to score on four chances with the man advantage.

Dan Marino Jersey .C. -- Tony Stewart will not race Saturday night at Bristol Motor Speedway, the third Sprint Cup race hes skipped since his car struck and killed Kevin Ward Jr.TORONTO -- Just because Tim Gleason is happy to be in Toronto doesnt mean hell be wearing a Maple Leafs jersey right away. Gleason, obtained from the Carolina Hurricanes for fellow defenceman John-Michael Liles and a prospect, practised with the Leafs for the first time Friday. But its uncertain if hell play Saturday night against the New York Rangers. "We feel he can make a contribution, and if it starts (Saturday) night or if it starts the next night or the night after, its always nice to have depth in defencemen," coach Randy Carlyle said. "I think its one of those things where youd like the player to get a little bit more familiar with your group, too. "Well see on how we feel he sets up." Gleason was paired with Mark Fraser on Friday. Fraser has been a healthy scratch for Torontos past six games and eight of the last nine. Carlyle provided some mixed signals on whether Gleason might be in the lineup for his size and physicality. "New Yorks got some big forwards in (Rick) Nash and (Brian) Boyle," he said. "Theyre a hockey club that will try to grind it down down-low. So those are all things you take into consideration." Carlyle and his staff must also consider Gleasons quick turnaround after being dealt New Years Day as the Leafs were playing in the Winter Classic. The veteran has a steep learning curve ahead of him. "Theres a lot of information, a lot of system things, kind of like going back to school, so its good," Gleason said. The 30-year-old left-handed shot had just one assist in 17 games for Carolina this season. He knew he was being traded about a week ago and was pulled out of games and practices beginning Dec. 31 against Montreal, so it didnt come as much of a surprise. Gleason, whose final game with the Hurricanes was at Air Canada Centre against the Leafs, also knew to expect more media attention than he got in Raleigh, N.C. "This is totally different from what Im used to. Theres usually two of you," Gleason said with a smile. "This is exciting, and (Im) happy to be a part of this club." The six-foot, 217-pound Gleason figures to fit in better with Carlyles ideal identity than the smaller, quicker Liles, whos more of a puck-mover. "I think Im a physical player," Gleason said. "Thats kind of how Ive earned my spot throughout my career so far, just being physical and being hard to play against and kind of bringing that gritty type of style of play." That gritty style of play is exactly why the Leafs acquired Gleason and his US$4-million cap hit that runs for two more seasons after this one. Unlike Liles, who was made expendable by the growth of Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner, Gleason wont be out of place. "I think were asking Tim Gleason to play the way hes accustomed to playing," Carlyle said. "Thats the style of play that hes etched out an NHL career (with), being a strong, physical, defensive defenceman. "We think he has something to offer to our group." Gleason wwill likely have something to offer as long as he can stay healthy.dddddddddddd. He missed time at the start of the season with a concussion and then separate stretches with an upper-body and then a lower-body injury. Asked if he was healthy now, Gleason deemed himself 100 per cent. "Obviously I had some issues prior at the beginning of the year, kind of a setback," he said. "But all good and ready to go and ready to get my game back here." Gleasons challenge in getting his game back has to do with the Leafs carrying eight defencemen. Theyve played eight this season, counting Liles, and at one point had a ninth on the roster in T.J. Brennan, who did not dress. That also could be a bit of a problem for Carlyle when it comes to juggling eight and only being able to play six or sometimes seven at a time. "Its always tough when youre making decisions whether people are in and out of the lineup. It does complicate it," Carlyle said. "But thats a luxury. We always state that when you start the beginning of the year, you think you need nine or 10 to get through the year. This years no different than that. "We just felt that with the way our team is and the way weve played that wed like to add some stiffness on the back end." The Leafs did that in getting Gleason for Liles and 2011 sixth-rounder Dennis Robertson, a defenceman whos playing at Brown University. Gleason had to waive his no-trade clause to make it happen and did so knowing it was a smart, practical move. "Ultimately it was our decision as a family," said Gleason, a veteran of 616 NHL regular-season games. "Youve been (in) a place for eight years, you kind of have friendships outside the hockey, things like that. It plays a big part in life itself. "But I knew as a hockey decision I had to move on, and what a better place to be than Toronto." Gleason arrived on a day temperatures reached -22 C and after snow had fallen across much of the region. That didnt bother the native of Clawson, Mich., which is about 20 minutes outside of Detroit. "Im a Michigander, so its not that far off," Gleason said. "Its in my blood. I tried to shake it for eight years, but I came back and I was used to it." NOTES -- Practice was delayed more than 40 minutes because of accidents on the west-bound section of the Gardiner Expressway. Accidents appeared to involve 10 cars in two separate places, and centre Nazem Kadri got caught up in congestion around Islington. It was unclear which other players were stuck in traffic getting out to the teams practice facility. ... The Leafs will wear their Winter Classic jerseys twice more this season, Jan. 18 against the Canadiens and Feb. 7 against the Canucks. Because of that, goaltender Jonathan Bernier will keep his vintage brown pads around before giving them to charity. ...
