    ST. JOHNS, N.L. -- It took the St. Johns IceCaps four tries to finally solve the Toronto Marlies on home ice. Jason King scored just 19 seconds into the third period and the IceCaps avoided back-to-back home losses to Toronto with a 3-2 win in American Hockey League play Wednesday. Shawn Weller and Jason Jaffray also scored for the IceCaps (22-9-5), who never surrendered a lead in the contest. "Last night I thought we got outworked all over the ice," said Jaffray. "Tonight I thought we controlled the play for most of the game. "It seems like weve played them a ton lately," he said of the seven matches between the clubs this season. "Im happy to kind of dismiss them for a while." David Aebischer allowed two goals on 25 shots after being pulled in a 4-2 loss to Toronto on Tuesday. "(Aebischer) no doubt deserved to come back tonight," head coach Keith McCambridge said. "You can really see his resume and his background as a goalie start to rise to the top." Mark Owuya made 35 saves for the Marlies (20-14-5). Owuya replaced Jussi Rynnas late in the previous game. Weller opened the scoring for St. Johns on the power play with a falling shot in the crease at 6:09 of the first. Kyle Neuber tied the game for Toronto at 2:40 in the second with a deke that beat Aebischer, giving the enforcer his first point in 25 games. "Its always good to get the first one out of the way," Neuber said. "Sixty minutes of effort can be hard to put together. We pulled it together for bits and they might have pulled it together a little more than us. Thats why they got the win." Jaffray responded for the IceCaps at 10:33 with a top-corner slapshot on Owuyas stick-side. The two-game series nearly boiled over in the second as a prolonged scrum led the referees to hand out 2-minute roughing penalties and 10 minute misconducts to both Kenndal McArdle and Jesse Blacker. King spun around from the right face-off dot and scored on a wrister to put St. Johns ahead for good. With 28 seconds left in regulation, Torontos Greg Scott parked himself in the slot and snapped home a pass from Jerry DAmigo to close within one. Weller did not return to the ice after being crushed in the corner by Neuber. McCambridge was uncertain on his status after the win. Colton Orr did not play for the Marlies after suffering a lower-body injury in Tuesdays game.

Now the Heat can prepare for another. James had 24 points, nine assists and seven rebounds, and Miami routed Detroit 110-95 on Sunday, avenging a home loss to the Pistons less than a week ago. Up next for the Heat is a game at Indiana on Tuesday. The Pacers have the NBAs best record -- and this will be the first meeting between the teams since Miamis seven-game victory in last seasons playoffs. "Theyre a great team right now, the way theyre playing," James said. "Were trying to get healthy, were trying to get to our full potential. Well see what we can do." First, the Heat had a score to settle against a Detroit team that won 107-97 at Miami on Tuesday. Ray Allen scored 18 points for the Heat, who were without Dwyane Wade on Sunday but still shot 56 per cent from the field and 11 of 28 from 3-point range. Miami took an early 16-5 lead, and although the Pistons fought back, the Heat went on a 13-2 run in the third quarter to make it 74-57. "They got us pretty good -- they beat up on us in Miami," James said. "To return the favour, we wanted to play much better against them this time." Miami looked motivated from the start. Allens 3-pointer made it 12-2, and although the Pistons steadied themselves momentarily, they could never tie it. Miami led 59-53 at halftime, and Mario Chalmers and Allen each made 3-pointers during the crucial run at the beginning of the third quarter. The Heat led 91-70 after three. "We knew that their focus was going to be higher, and you could see that at the beginning of the game and again in the third quarter. They were really able to push the ball off our missed shots and get some easy baskets," Pistons coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We knew what was coming after we beat them up there, but knowing they are going to be coming hard is one thing. Stopping them is something else." Andre Drummond had 19 points and 14 rebounds for Detroiit, which had its four-game winning streak snapped.dddddddddddd The Pistons never showed any sign of slowing down Miami, and although they finished with 17 offensive rebounds, they never took full advantage of a potential edge inside. Detroit had a 21-6 edge in second-chance points, but that could have been far worse for the Heat against Drummond and Greg Monroe. "I thought we did a better job tonight versus last game of -- when they did get the ball, really wall them up and force them under the basket," Miamis Shane Battier said. "Those guys are pogo sticks, and not much you can do when theyre playing above the rim like that. But once they catch it, try to wall them up and keep them pinned to the baseline." The Pistons entered as NBA leaders in steals per game, and the Heat turned the ball over 10 times in the first half, but Miami took care of the ball better over the final two quarters, and its torrid shooting never really let up. The Miami bench scored 41 points on 15-of-24 shooting. Roger Mason Jr. had 12 points and Chris Andersen added 10. James, meanwhile, shot 10 of 15 from the field, although he did have six of Miamis 16 turnovers. Chris Bosh scored 16 points for the Heat. Brandon Jennings had 19 for the Pistons. "I didnt think we had enough energy tonight. When you are playing at home, you should have a ton of energy, and we didnt," Detroits Kyle Singler said. "We went in there and beat them a few days ago, so we knew they were going to want revenge tonight. They are tough when they play like that." Wade played in Miamis win over Minnesota on Saturday night, but coach Erik Spoelstra likes to rest him in back-to-backs to reduce the wear and tear on his knees. Heat forward Michael Beasley (left hamstring) and Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey (left knee) were also out. NOTES: Detroits last five-game winning streak was in December of 2009. ... Miami shot 65 per cent in the first half and was 5 of 12 from 3-point range. ' ' '
