Jeff Deslauriers made 30 saves to propel Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to the win. Tom Kuhnhackl, Brian Gibbons and Bobby Farnham scored.
Eddie Pasquale turned aside 13 shots in a losing cause for St. John's, which outshot Wilkes-Barre/Scranton 30-16.
Welcome Back: Syracuse assistant coach Trent Cull is a former St. John's Maple Leafs defenceman and Crunch forward Ray Kaunisto played one game for the IceCaps last season while suiting up in 53 contests with their then-ECHL affiliate the Colorado Eagles.
Scoring Racers: IceCaps forward Eric O'Dell remains in the hunt for the American Hockey League scoring race. O'Dell posted one assist in this past weekend's set against the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins and now boasts 24 points (11G, 13A) in 24 games played, good for a tie for eighth in league scoring. Tied with O'Dell, along with four other players, is Syracuse's Nikita Kucherov (17GP, 13G, 11A), who hasn't played in the American Hockey League since his call-up to the NHL's Tampa Bay Lightning on Nov. 24.
