ST. Jared Spurgeon Jersey . JOHNS, N.L. -- Ben Chiarot doesnt expect much offence out of his team. So it wasnt a surprise for the defenceman that the IceCaps won -- he just didnt expect it to be so easy. "We dont usually score that many goals, our games are usually tight-checking games," said Chiarot. "To get five is good. Its nice." Chiarot scored and Eddie Pasquale made 24 saves as St. Johns beat the Hershey Bears 5-1 in American Hockey League action on Friday. Ben Chiarot, John Albert, Jason Jaffray, Austen Brassard and JC Lipon scored for the IceCaps (2-2-1). For Albert, Brassard and Jaffray, the goals marked their first of the season. Hershey forward Jeff Taffe scored for the Bears (0-2-1), while David Leggio made 35 saves. It was actually the second time this season St. Johns scored five goals after they did it in a 5-1 win over Providence on Oct. 5. "We are happy to get the two points and get some success," said IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge. "We know they will be coming hard tomorrow, so we have to enjoy it for two minutes and then shift gears and get ready for tomorrow." McCambridge was happy with the teams offensive output, as well as their penalty-killing prowess in holding the Bears to just one power-play goal on six opportunities. "Offensively, we were pretty creative and for the most part we were able to not get too buried and not lose too much momentum when killing off penalties," he said. Taffe opened the scoring with a wraparound power-play goal, sliding the puck under a sprawling Pasquale at the 12:31 mark of the first period. The IceCaps tied the game 28 seconds into the second, when a cross-crease pass found Lipon who hit a one timer on the doorstep into a wide-open net on the power play. At the 8:59 into the third, Chiarot put the home team in the lead on a shot through traffic, getting a deflection from a Hershey player on the way. "(Eric) ODell won the puck back from the faceoff and when I looked up I saw their guy was coming out pretty hard, so I just tried to get the puck by him," said Chiarot. "Their D-man tried to stop it and it deflected off his stick and went up and over their goalies shoulder. It was a bit of a lucky break, but we will take it." Jaffray doubled the lead for the IceCaps with a slapshot coming in over the blue-line at 10:13 in the third period. IceCaps forward Carl Klingberg then carried the puck over the blue-line, beating a defender wide and playing a pass across the crease for a wide-open Albert to finish. Brassard added more salt to the wound, breaking in the zone and beating Leggio high glove with 1:06 left in the game. Alex Stalock Jersey . -- Its been 21 years since Joe Gibbs Racing celebrated its only Daytona 500 victory. Ryan Suter Jersey . Beckham says "nothing has been confirmed yet, but its something I am very excited about." He adds that "Miami is something that really excites me because there is a great energy down there. TORONTO -- An exercise rider died Tuesday after being crushed by a thoroughbred at Torontos Woodbine Racetrack in what officials described as a "freak accident." Police said the rider was in the saddle around 6 a.m., when the horse went into an "unexplained wild gallop," showing signs of medical distress. The rider, who was identified as Mourad Boudraa, 40, was crushed into the track railing and then by the weight of the horse as it collapsed. Jamie Martin, vice-president of Woodbine Entertainment Group, said Boudraa was originally from Morocco and had three to four years of experience as an exercise rider. "He was a freelance so he worked for a number of trainers," Martin said. "I would say its a freak accident." The horse, Tawneys Wish, died of what Woodbine Racetrack officials said was believed to be a heart attack. The three-year-old dark filly had one start this year and $368 in winnings. Mike Pownall, an equine veterinarian, said the horses cause of death wont be known until a necropsy is performed. "Its like when you find those athletes that suddenly die and you find theres a heart defect, that would be the human equivalency," Pownall said. "You have no idea it was existing, or you could prevent it, or you could do anything to allter the course. Tyler Ennis Jersey. " In 2011, Canadian Olympic champion Eric Lamaze was riding his horse Hickstead in Italy when the animal suddenly collapsed and died of an acute aortic rupture. The horse had carried Lamaze to gold and silver at the Beijing Olympics in show jumping. The Ontario Racing Commission, which requires a necropsy whenever a racehorse dies, collects information for a database on common racehorse injuries in the hopes of minimizing future problems, Pownall said. Pownall said working with horses carries inherent risk and those involved in the industry are all too aware of what can go wrong. "They know the potential for unexplained, sudden things to happen," he said. "Its a hazard of the job." But in the tight-knit horseracing community in Canada, word travels fast when there is an injury or fatality, he said. "I was sad for the horse, sad for the rider. Nobody wants that. Im proud of the riders that go out there every day and proud of the horses that go out there," he said, adding that Woodbine Racetrack is a "well-regarded track" in terms of safety standards. Officials from the provincial Ministry of Labour are investigating the accident. A necropsy on the horse is set to be performed at the University of Guelph. Discount NFL Jerseys China Jerseys Wholesale Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 Cheap NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic ' ' '
