ST. JOHNS, N.L. -- Eric ODell is hitting his stride at the right time for the St. Johns IceCaps. ODell scored his sixth goal in four games to help St. Johns beat the Admirals 5-2 on Friday and eliminate Norfolk from the American Hockey League playoffs. "Ive been finding the back of the net," ODell said. "It just feels like the puck is finding my stick and Ive been able to put it in. Give credit to my linemates for finding me and getting the puck on the net and Ive been lucky to get them in the back of the net. My confidence is really high." IceCaps head coach Keith McCambridge has recognized ODells contributions to the team, naming him alternate captain while regular captain Jason Jaffray was out for Game 6 of the series against the Admirals. "We feel hes a leader," said McCambridge. "Hes been here three years and that theres leadership qualities there and thats why he had the opportunity to wear an A." Jerome Samson, Kyle MacKinnon, Andrew Gordon and Ben Chiarot also scored for the IceCaps. McCambridge believes the key to the victory was St. Johns depth on all four forward lines. "By the third period, the ability to roll four lines really kicked in," he said. "Through this whole series weve talked about trying to utilize our depth and our four lines and I felt that third period was a direct result of that." Andre Petersson and Steve Eminger replied for the Admirals. The IceCaps took the lead 5:29 into the game when Adam Lowry shot on net and Samson fired home the rebound from the slot into a practically empty net. Petersson tied the game for Norfolk when he buried a strong wrist shot off the crossbar and in at the 7:13 mark of the first period on the power play. IceCaps goalie Michael Hutchinson saved a breakaway 9:45 into the first period to keep the game tied, and then 45 seconds later bailed out St. Johns on another breakaway. ODell found a loose puck off a rebound when skating to the right side of the net and scored on a quick wrister for the IceCaps with 9:39 left in the second period. The Admirals capitalized when Chris Wagner fanned on a shot which ended up trickling across the slot to an incoming Eminger, who scored an easy tap-in at the right post at the 14:22 mark of the second period. St. Johns took back the lead when MacKinnon knocked in a loose puck in the crease after defencemen Brenden Kichton carried it to the net from the point at the 17:03 mark of the second period. The IceCaps ran rampant to start the third, as Gordon caught the Admirals napping 3:27 into the period, scoring on a heads-up play with a quick wrist shot from along the goal-line to beat an out-of-position Brad Thiessen. St. Johns added another 41 seconds later when Chiarot found a hole in traffic and the goalie to score a well-placed wrist shot from the side boards. Hutchinson stopped 26 for the IceCaps, while Admirals goalie Brad Thiessen saved 34. The IceCaps now get a week of rest before finding out who their playoff opponent will be (either the Providence Bruins and the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins). The time off, McCambridge said, will prove beneficial for injured players, like captain Jaffary. "Knock on wood, we need to try and stay as healthy as possible," said McCambridge. "This week of rest is something we will try to utilize." ODell said the IceCaps will savour the series win, but are looking forward to the road ahead. "Everyone is happy in (the room), all smiles, but were going to enjoy this series win and then tomorrow we go back to work."

Derrick Morgan Jersey .C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes used a strong third period to extend their winning streak to three games.CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Nobody in baseball likes to use injuries as an excuse, including Bryan Price. That being said (one of Prices favourite phrases), the first-year Cincinnati Reds manager almost cant wait until Saturday. That is when he plans to write pitcher Mat Latos name into the starting lineup, all but giving Price his first look at the team he hoped to be managing when he took the job last October. Latos and first baseman Joey Votto of Toronto completed rehab assignments with Triple-A Louisville on Monday. Votto, sidelined since May 16 with a quadriceps strain in his left knee, was activated from the 15-day disabled list before Tuesday nights game against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Latos, who hasnt pitched all year after having surgery on his right elbow last October and his left knee on Valentines Day, is tentatively scheduled to start Saturday in Milwaukee. "This is as close to being whole as weve been all year," Price said Tuesday. Votto was the 12th player placed on the disabled list by the Reds this season. Catcher Devin Mesoracos two trips meant those 12 players had made a total of 13 appearances on the DL. Last season, 11 Reds players made a total of 15 appearances. Votto was set to bat third Tuesday night. He hadnt played since going on the disabled list May 21, retroactive to May 16, with an injury to the same knee that requiredd two operations in 2012.dddddddddddd The Reds went 11-12 without the 2010 NL MVP, who was hitting .257 with six home runs and 12 RBIs in 39 games. Votto spent Sunday and Monday with Louisville, going 2 for 6 with two strikeouts and grounding into a double play in two games at Pawtucket. "I feel good," Votto said. "Im looking forward to playing. I hold myself to a high standard. I wouldnt come back unless I felt like I could play to that high standard, so Im not really concerned about what percentage people think Im at. Im going to come back and play well." Latos, who has won 14 games in each of the past two seasons -- his first two with the Reds -- made his fourth rehab start Monday and lasted 5 2-3 innings in a game shortened by rain. He then continued to throw in an indoor batting cage to get his pitch count up to 100, the goal Price wanted the right-hander to reach before pitching for the Reds. "I was ready five or six days ago," said Latos, who chafed at being forced to make a fourth rehab start. "The stuffs there. My velocity is there. Throwing sliders at 90 mph puts a lot of stress on your arm, so that should tell you something." First baseman Donald Lutz was optioned to Louisville to make room on the roster for Votto. Lutz hit .154 (2 for 13) in seven games after being recalled from Louisville on May 23.
