ST. Goran Dragic Jersey . JOHNS, N.L. -- Itll be a long night for IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge. Falling behind three goals and the inability to capitalize on six power-play opportunities proved insurmountable for the St. Johns IceCaps, who fell 4-2 to the Worcester Sharks on Sunday in American Hockey League action. "I hate to lose, I dont sleep well when we lose," McCambridge said. "I thought we played a strong game. (But) we had a hard time in the first two periods putting pucks to the net and having screens and traffic at the net." Travis Oleksuk, Eriah Hayes, Dan DaSilva and Rod Davison scored for the Sharks (23-17-3). Blair Riley and Kael Mouillierat replied for the IceCaps (28-18-3). The Sharks limited the IceCaps on the power play by blocking lanes and taking away quality scoring chances, which was noticeable to IceCaps forward Eric ODell. "They were doing pretty good with blocking shots and we didnt put enough pucks on net, like we usually do," ODell said. "We were moving the puck pretty well, but (didnt) get enough pucks on net." McCambridge thought the power play, which is seventh overall in the AHL, could have had a better chance at scoring if his own club stayed disciplined while on the man advantage. "We had two power plays where we nullified them by taking penalties," McCambridge said. "That doesnt work in our favour." St Johns beat the Sharks Saturday night, and would have been thrilled to take both games of the two-game mini series entering the AHL All-Star break. But winning back-to-back at home hasnt been easy this season for the IceCaps. "We had a pretty good game but we had a couple breakdowns in our defensive zone that cost us," ODell said. "We tend to win one and lose one at home. Its tough to get two wins when teams come here to play us. We have to get better at that. Tonight was an important game and we came up short." The Sharks scored first when a pass from behind the net found Oleksuk out front alone, where he scored into a wide-open net 5:27 into the first period. Davison doubled the lead for the Sharks, hitting home a one-time slap shot past IceCaps goaltender Michael Hutchinson with 5:03 left to play in the second period. Hayes tapped home a rebound 2:50 into the third period on the power play to increase the lead to 3-0. The IceCaps found the score sheet when Riley tipped home a Will ONeill slapshot from the point at the 11:10 mark of the third. Mouillierat pulled the IceCaps to within one by tapping home a rebound off a Carl Klingberg backhander at 14:50, however DaSilva buried an empty netter with 22.2 seconds left to clinch the win for Worcester Troy Grosenick stopped 29 shots for the Sharks, while Hutchinson made 25 saves for St. Johns.

The 24-year-old has seven goals and 17 assists in 132 career NHL games, all coming with the Lightning. He was selected in the second round, 47th overall, of the 2007 draft. Kelly Olynyk Jersey . "I had a pretty good year," the soft-spoken Granberg told with a grin from the teams annual rookie tournament in London. A fourth-round selection in 2010, Granberg is worth keeping an eye on with NHL training camps rolling around in less than a week. The six-foot-two, 200-pound defender may not possess the wow-inspiring theatrics of fellow prospect Morgan Rielly, but nonetheless has a chance to contribute with the Leafs when all is said and done this season. .

He logged the first scoreless outing of his career on Friday versus Oakland in a no-decision.CALGARY - Calgary lost a prominent businessman while the Stampeders lost a former offensive lineman. But John Hufnagel lost a friend.John Forzani, who spent six seasons with the CFL club and later built a chain of successful sporting goods stores, died Friday. He was 67.The Stampeders confirmed Forzanis passing in a statement Friday morning. The Calgary native had been on life support in a California hospital after suffering a heart attack.John was a teammate, a friend, one of the funniest guys I ever knew, said Hufnagel, the Stampeders head coach and general manager. John was instrumental, along with Ted Hellard, Doug Mitchell and Bob Vickers, in my hiring in 2008, which Im very appreciative of.Even though John is not with us, his legacy and his mark that he made in the sports world and in the business world in the community of Calgary will survive.The Stampeders have become a model franchise under Hufnagel, finishing atop the West Division four times since his return. Calgary has reached the Grey Cup twice in that time, winning in 08.Hufnagel has amassed a superb 87-36-1 record as Calgarys head coach heading into Saturdays home game against Winnipeg. The Stampeders have the CFLs best record this season at 14-2.He was pivotal in getting coach Hufnagel up here and for that reason alone, hes directly contributed to our success on the field, Stampeders running back Jon Cornish the CFLs outstanding player last year said of Forzani. Hes definitely a guy who took some of his football habit and kept on living with them throughout his life.Hes always worked hard and played hard.After attending Utah State, Forzani won a Grey Cup in 1971 in his first season with Calgary. He played alongside his brothers Tom and Joe.Forzanis nephew, Johnny, was also with the club from 2010 to 12.Johns passion for community and football were singularly essential in the revival of the Stamps important role in the community, Stampeders chairman Ken King said in a statement. It is one, among many, of his great legacies. I will miss him dearly.Commissioner Mark Cohon said the CFL family was saddened by the news of Forzanis passing.As a league, we are immensely proud to say he was one of ours, he said in a statement. As individuals, we are so grateful to have known him. On the field, John was a Grey Cup champion. In business, he epitomized the entrepreneurial spirit. In the community, he supported causes he believed in. And as a member of our board of governors, and an ownerr of the Calgary Stampeders, he did much to move the CFL forward. Alonzo Mourning Jersey. .Gregarious and outgoing, John was a joy to be around. He not only demonstrated to us all how to reach lofty goals; he showed us how to enjoy the journey as well. Our thoughts are with his family. Like all of his other friends across the country, we will miss him, and remember him.After retiring from football, Forzani built his sporting goods business, which had over 500 outlets. That company, Forzani Group Ltd, was sold in 2011 to Canadian Tire, which renamed it FGL Sports.Forzani also established Calgarys annual Mothers Day Run and Walk in 1977, a fundraising event which continues to this day. In 2000, the Forzani Foundation was established to assist charities including Canadian amateur athletics.Forzani was also part of a local group that purchased the Stampeders in 05. The Calgary Flames became majority owners of the football franchise in 12 but Forzani retained a minority stake and was the teams co-chair in 2013.Upon the arrival of the ownership group that included Forzani, the Stampeders went from a 4-14 team in 2004 to 11-7 the following season. The club has posted a winning record in nine of 10 seasons since.I called him uncle John, veteran Stampeders receiver Nik Lewis said. He was part of the group that came in here and turned things around.Being here in 04 and seeing how bad we were as a team and the ownership group was always up in the air and you didnt know what was going on, to move into 2005 when Ted Hellard and John Forzani and the rest of the owners came in, you could just see the difference. Theres not a lot of loyalty in professional football, but when youve got a guy like John, you really look at him and hes going to tell you what it is and how it is and you can respect it and you just love him for it.Club president Gordon Norrie said Forzani will forever be a key figure in the CFL franchises history.He was certainly instrumental in turning this football club around to the point you see how successful it is today, Norrie said. He was a great contributor to the community of Calgary too with the Forzani foundation, a significant businessman behind the Forzani group. Its going to be a tough day for all of us.He was the funniest man I met in my life and he had time for everybody all the time. A very uplifting individual.Forzani is survived by his wife Linda and grown children Mike and Jodi. Funeral arrangements were not immediately known.
