The Worcester Sharks had to battle the weather just to get to St. John’s, Newfoundland, and then while there had a handful of key players get hit with the flu bug. But thanks to some rock solid goaltending by Harri Sateri and late third period goals by Bracken Kearns and Daniil Tarasov the WorSharks came away 3-2 winners over the IceCaps on Tuesday night, and Sateri’s 21 save shutout highlighted a Worcester 4-0 victory Wednesday night. Tarasov finished the two game series with three goals, with Kearns adding a goal and an assist. Captain John McCarthy broke out of his goal scoring drought with a pair of tallies in Wednesday night’s game.
