LEWISTON, Maine -- Andrew Gordon scored two goals and assisted on two more as the St. John's IceCaps held on to beat the Portland Pirates 7-5 in American Hockey League action on Tuesday.

John Albert had two goals and an assist, Kyle MacKinnon had a goal and an assist apiece, and Brenden Kichton and Eric O'Dell also scored for St. John's (29-19-4), who scored six second-period goals for a franchise record.

Lucas Lessio had two goals and an assist for Portland (19-22-9), Rotislav Klesla scored a goal and assisted on another, and Andy Miele and Brett Hextall also scored.

Portland got on the board first with Klesla's second of the season at 9:00 of the first period, but St. John's responded with three straight goals -- including two within the first minute and a half of the second period -- to go up 3-1.
