Screenshot 2015-02-21 at 11.03.35 PMMANCHESTER, NH – The Monarchs fell behind by two goals for the second straight night, but came out with a 3-2 overtime win against the IceCaps on Saturday night thanks to a game-winning goal from Colin Miller.

“We needed [two points] after dropping one last night,” Miller said. “I think it was a good push after going down 1-0.  We just stayed calm and fought back hard to get the win.”

Miller also scored the game-tying goal in the third period, marking the second time this season he had multiple goals in a game (alsoNov. 1 vs. STJ).

It marked the first time this season the Monarchs won at home when trailing after two periods (1-4-0-0).

Eric O’Dell started the scoring for St. John’s with a goal 3:37 into the game.

St. John’s would make it a 2-0 lead when Scott Kosmachuk was left alone in front of the net to put a back hander in.

David Van der Gulik put the Monarchs on the board at 11:56 in the second period. It was his 11th goal of the season.

Manchester tied the score on the man advantage at 10:10 in the third when Miller scored his team-high eighth power-play goal of the season.

The teams went to overtime for the second time in as many nights, but Miller ended the game with a slap shot at 6:30 in the extra frame.

The Monarchs close out their three-game weekend with a 3 p.m. game against the Sharks Feb. 22.
