NORFOLK, Va. Spencer Long Jersey . -- The St. Johns IceCaps got third-period goals from four different skaters, and weathered a Norfolk offensive storm to earn a 5-3 win over the Admirals for a 2-1 lead in their American Hockey League Eastern Conference playoff series. Josh Morrisey got the offence going with a goal just 39 seconds into the final period and Ben Chiarot, Jerome Samson and Adam Lowry added the others for IceCaps. "To get a goal in the first shift of such an important game lifts the bench and builds momentum," said IceCaps coach Keith McCambridge. "I thought after that, we got back to doing what we needed to, and that was managing pucks better and being a harder team to play against." Eric ODell scored in the first period for St. Johns. Jesse Blacker, Max Friberg, and Josh Manson scored for the Admirals. Norfolk led 2-1 going into the final period, after Friberg and Blacker scored within 1:42 of each other in the first period. The Admirals, who have struggled offensively all season, had been outshot 14-6 up until that point. After a scoreless second period, Morrisey tied the game on a shot from the blue-line behind two screening teammates. "You give up a goal in the first minute of the third period with a 2-1 lead, thats not a recipe for success," Norfolk coach Trent Yawney said. Chiarots goal, also scored from well outside, gave the IceCaps a 3-2 lead eight minutes later. "I was trying to box out the player in front of me, and the shot went through my legs," said Norfolk defenseman Manson. "I dont think (goaltender Brad Thiessen) saw it." Manson replied 47 seconds later, scoring from the right faceoff circle over a sprawling Michael Hutchinson in the St. Johns net. The IceCaps Zach Redmond pushed Norfolks Matt Bailey into Hutchinson, knocking him down and clearing the way for Mansons shot. That tie was short lived, though. Samson scored from short range at 10:05 to give St. Johns the lead, which it nursed the rest of the way. Lowry scored into an empty net. "Ive always had good games here," said Samson. "Now its playoff time, and its even better." Hutchinson turned back 25 shots for his fourth win of the playoffs. Admirals goalie Thiessen made 26 saves. Thiessen, a playoff veteran with Wilkes-Barre/Scranton for four seasons, but the backup since coming to Norfolk in November, was thrust into the starting role after the Anaheim Ducks recalled John Gibson to replace the injured Frederik Anderson. Gibson, who was 4-2 in the playoffs with a 1.45 goals-against average and a 0.955 saves percentage when he was called up, started for Anaheim against the Los Angeles Kings on Saturday. "That doesnt surprise me," said McCambridge about Gibsons call-up. "He looks like hes the real deal." Game 4 is Monday at Norfolk. Montae Nicholson Jersey . Although Olivetti, a qualifier, had 13 aces, he failed to force a single break-point chance on Gasquets serve and lost his own three times. Gasquet next plays third-seeded Jerzy Janowicz of Poland, who won had 18 aces in a 6-2, 6-4 win against seventh-seeded Edouard Roger-Vasselin of France. Darrell Green Jersey .500 ball against teams with winning records, so they needed a huge lift from somebody Tuesday night in a matchup of division leaders. http://www.cheapredskinslockroom.com/AUTHENTIC-SAM-HUFF-REDSKINS-JERSEY/ . LOUIS -- When Braves second baseman Tyler Pastornicky backpedaled into shallow right field to catch the popup and Jason Heyward didnt arrive fast enough to take charge, Kolten Wong got the green light. EDMONTON -- Mike Reilly has been one of the few positives in what is one of the worst seasons in Edmonton Eskimos history, yet the 27-year-old says the teams final three games are crucial for future of the franchise, the team and for himself. With games remaining against three western rivals, beginning Friday evening at home against the Calgary Stampeders, the Eskimos designated quarterback of the future says its critical the team does not "roll over and die." "Its important we compete and get some wins," he said. "Its tough to not fall into that mentality of things are lost and to hang your head. Its like when a game is over and youve lost, you have to flush it and not dwell on it. Yeah we havent had much success. But if we dwell on that were never going to get better." Reilly, who has started every game this season, says the 3-12 Eskimos have to treat the remaining games as playoffs "and try to get as hyped up for them as we can." "Treat them as the most important games of the season because honestly, for the future of this franchise, for the future of this team, we need to approach it like that. We need to have success these next three games to give everybody something to get excited about for next year." The native of Kennewick, Wash., vows hell personally be fighting every down until the end of the season because his job, like everyone elses on the team, is on the line. Reilly earned the starting job out of training camp -- aided by the season-ending knee injury to his main rival for the job, Matt Nichols -- and has proven himself a tough, capable competitor. But unless the EEskimos win at least one of the last three games they will finish with the fewest wins since 1963 when they were 2-14. Trent Williams Jersey. As quarterback, Reilly has to share the blame. "I think were playing to save everybodys job," he says. "Im working to save my job, Im playing to save my teammates jobs, and Im playing to save the jobs of everybody in here because everybody here, coaching staff, players, are all important to me because theyre all put in a ton of work." Its a given there will be roster changes made and Reilly says the next three games are an "opportunity for everybody to show why they deserve to be around next year, and Im no different." "Im not that far removed from a backup," he added. "I remember what its like to stand on the sidelines and watch the game. So even through theres no playoffs this is three opportunities to get on the field and get better, try to make this team better, try to make this club better and get some momentum, get some hope going into next season. "For so long Ive been a backup and Ive spent so much time and hard work trying to get on the field that it would be a shame to give up and say Well, theres only three games left." Those games are against Calgary, B.C. and Saskatchewan, three western teams the Eskimos have to find a way to beat if they want to become competitive and get back to the playoffs. Defensive tackle Almondo Sewell, who was taken off the field on a stretcher last weekend but suffered no serious injury, will not play Friday. Nor will centre Alex Krausnick (knee). Brian Ramsay is expected to start at centre.
