    ST. JOHNS, N.L. -- Its clear that if the St. Johns IceCaps want to win their American Hockey League playoff series against the Norfolk Admirals theyll need to solve goalie John Gibson. Gibson stopped 42 of 43 shots he faced to beat St. Johns 3-1 on Tuesday in Game 1 of their series, improving his 1.42 goals-against average and a .947 save percentage in four first-round playoff games. "Their goaltender is obviously really strong in net," IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge said. "He has the numbers he has in the playoffs for a reason and he was very strong for them tonight. I thought we did a good job of trying to get traffic in front of him. "Their defencemen did an excellent job boxing out and making our forwards work." St. Johns defenceman Will ONeill said the key to solving Gibson is the same as beating any hot goalie. "Just like (solving) any goalie, we need to get more traffic to the net," ONeill said. "I think second and third opportunities are where we are going to have success. We need bodies to the net and to (capitalize) on those opportunities." McCambridge said scoring the first goal would have been key Tuesday night. "I thought we had some opportunities," he said. "Obviously we would have liked to get the first goal to build some momentum. With regards to generating offence, I thought we generated some good scoring chances and had some decent traffic." Nic Kerdiles scored two goals and John Kurtz had the game-winner for Norfolk. Andrew Gordon replied for St. Johns, while IceCaps goalie Michael Hutchinson stopped 24 shots. Norfolk opened the scoring when Kerdiles one timed a wrist-shot from the slot 10:14 into the first period, finishing off a pass from Andre Petersson, who sent a pass from behind the net. St. Johns killed a 40-second 5-on-3 power play, starting at 13:15 in the first period. Despite the IceCaps outshooting the Admirals 18-5 in the second period, Gibson was impenetrable in the Norfolk net. St. Johns found the equalizer 3:20 into the third period when Gordon tipped in a heavy point shot just as a power play expired. Gibson saw little of the shot, if anything, as Jason Jaffray and Gordon had set up on the doorstep. Admirals forward Zack Strotini carried the puck to the net and, on the ensuing scramble, Kurtz tapped it in to retake the lead, 2-1, at the 7-minute mark of the third period. Kerdiles added an empty netter with 13.8 seconds left. Eric Bledsoe - The Winnipeg Jets got over one hurdle by snapping their longest losing streak of the season. Nate Archibald Jersey.

Staff at the Rajkot Hotel surprise England cricketers Moeen Ali and Joe Root with a cake Former England captain Stewart told Sky Sports that the all-rounder looked determined from the off to cash in on an inviting pitch. When he came into the side he came in as a batsman who bowled - then he turned into a bowler who bats, said Stewart.Batting down at eight didnt suit him; hes got all of his runs higher up the order so if you can get him in, in that more responsible position and hell deliver. Batting at five suits him perfectly because he times the ball as well as anyone but he also knows when to crank it up.He has had a little bit of a history of getting to fifty or sixty and playing a rash shot but in this innings, especially, he said Im making sure Im getting three figures.Hopefully he will get that first thing in the morning and go on to score a real big one.Ali shared a fourth-wicket stand of 179 with Joe Root, who struck 11 fours and a six during his 124-run innings - his 11th Test century in total and first in Asia.

Joe Root was dismissed after being controversially caught and bowled by Umesh Yadav In real-time I thought he was out, said Stewart. Its the bowlers reaction that is the problem though, because it suggests have I caught it?
