Kael Mouillierat scored three goals and added an assist as the St. John’s IceCaps won for a third straight game, defeating the Hartford Wolf Pack 6-2 in American Hockey League play Saturday night in Hartford, Conn.

Mouillierat is the first IceCap to record a hat trick this season.

Jason Jaffray added a goal and two assists, while Adam Lowry and Jerome Samson also scored for St. John’s (22-16-3), which remains a point behind the Providence Bruins for seventh place in the AHL’s Eastern Conference. The IceCaps have two games in hand on Providence.

Jesper Fast had the goals, both on power plays, for the Wolf Pack (13-22-5), the farm team of the New York Rangers and owners of the worst record in the AHL.

Michael Hutchinson, who has started all three games of St. John’s winning streak, made 24 saves for the IceCaps Saturday, while David LeNeveu faced 27 shots for Hartford.

The IceCaps, who opened a five-game road trip by defeating the P-Bruins 5-4 Friday night, complete a three-in-three weekend when they take on the Bruins this afternoon (4:35 p.m. Newfoundland time) in Providence. The Bruins, who defeated the Worcester Sharks 3-2 on Saturday, will also be playing their third game in less than three days.
