ST. Swell Schweiz . JOHNS, N.L. -- Adam Lowry opened the scoring for the St.Johns IceCaps and Eddie Pasquale held off the Portland Pirates with a 30-save performance Sunday night to win 3-1 in American Hockey League action. Lowry left his mark 1:03 into the second period as he finished off a pass from J.C. Lipon in front of the net. "Its always nice to score," Lowry said. "It was a really nice pass from J.C. and I was just in the right spot. Our team didnt have the greatest first period and we talked about it in the locker room. We needed to be better in the second." IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge echoed Lowrys opinion of the way his team played the first period. "We werent skating enough, we werent moving our feet and our execution wasnt good enough," McCambridge said. "We knew we had to be better and we werent happy with it. "Once we got through that first period, we were able to get our game back to where it needed to be." Lowry and McCambridge both praised Pasquale for his play in net. "Pasquale made some huge saves on the penalty kill for us and the (Pirates) had some huge chances," Lowry said. "He made a few highlight-reel saves and we were able to close it out." The IceCaps penalty kill was a welcome sight for McCambridge. "We made good reads on where the lanes were and we had good sticks," he said. "The most important thing to all penalty kills, our goaltender was the best penalty killer on the ice and we did a good job blocking shots. We were able to limit the very dangerous power play that Portland has." Jerome Samson and Brenden Kichton also scored for the IceCaps (17-13-3). Andy Miele replied for the Pirates (13-12-5). Kichton hit a one-time slapshot high after pinching in from the point at 2:51 into the third. Lipon set him up from across the rink. Miele beat Pasquale to get the Pirates on the board, scoring high on a wrist shot at the 12:40 mark of the third. Samson picked off a puck on his blue-line after blocking a shot and went on to score five-hole on a breakaway with 5:35 left in the third. Mark Visentin made 37 saves for the Pirates.
