ALBANY, NY -- Jeff Frazee made 22 saves on 23 shots, but the Albany Devils lost, 1-0, to the St. John’s IceCaps Friday at Times Union Center. St. John’s netminder Eddie Pasquale earned his second shutout of the year by making all 24 saves.
“We played really well defensively,” Frazee said. “We gave up a few odd-man rushes and they had a few chances in the first. Other than the back-to-back penalties we played really well. I mean, we back checked really well and broke up a few of their chances.”
St. John’s Zach Redmond opened the scoring at 5:53 of the second when he was set up in the slot for a one-timer by Jason Jaffray. Maxime Macenauer was credited with the second assist. The power-play tally came during a span of three straight St. John’s man advantages to begin the period.
Frazee’s night included nine saves in the first, eight in the second and five in the third. He is now 3-3-2 with a 2.22 goals-against average in a .917 save percentage.
Pasquale made eight stops in the first, seven in the second and nine in the third.
On Saturday, the Devils travel north for the fourth game of the Time Warner Cable Cup. They square off with the Adirondack Phantoms at Glens Falls Civic Center at 7 pm. Fans can follow the action on 104.5 “The Team” ESPN Radio or online at ahllive.com.

The Albany Devils begin a four to six week period without Adam Henrique, who underwent a procedure Thursday to prepare the ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb.
“It’s an opportunity for other guys,” said Head Coach Rick Kowalsky. “We have some guys who have been in and out of the lineup that are now going to have an opportunity to potentially play on a regular basis. Also, some of the third, fourth line centers get bumped up the ladder a bit here.”
- The Devils are fifth in the Northeast Division and 15th in the Eastern Conference with a 4-7-0-5 record (13 pts.), including a 2-4-0-3 mark at Times Union Center. The IceCaps are tied for first in the North Division and sixth in the conference with a 10-9-0-1 record (21 pts.), including a 4-4-0-0 showing on the road.
- Albany is coming off a 5-4 shootout loss to the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins Sunday at Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall. Mattias Tedenby, Bobby Butler, Adam Henrique andJacob Josefson all scored and goaltender Keith Kinkaid made 31 saves.
- Mattias Tedenby is tied for fifth on the team with six points, including three goals and three assists. Now in his third professional season, Tedenby has 31 points (12g-19a) in 60 career AHL contests. At the NHL level, he has 28 points (9g-19a) in 101 contests.
