The ‘Blades again outshot the Stingrays, this time 34-27, but avenged Wednesday's shootout loss by storming back from an early two-goal deficit to finish off South Carolina with a three-goal burst in the third period Friday night. If you're head coach Greg Poss, you have to like how your club responded after squandering their first lead of the game, allowing a last-second goal by losing a defensive zone draw while trying to close out the second period. Aaron Bogosian, Matt Marquardt, Matthieu Roy, Justin Shugg, Brody Sutter and Corey Trivino all scored for the Everblades. Lightning prospects Alex Hutchings (pictured, courtesy of SwampHockey), Charles Landry and Pat Nagle were all in action for Florida while Daniel Milan was scratched yet again due to injury. Since his lackluster season debut, Hutchings has quietly racked up four assists, 11 shots and a couple of shootout tallies in the four games since. With the victory, Florida (3-1-2) leapfrogged Orlando for the divisional lead before next playing host to divisional foe Greenville (2-3-0) on Saturday night.

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-2-2, +1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM

The Aces mounted their own furious finish Friday night, putting up 18 shots and scoring four unanswered goals in the third period en route to a thorough drubbing of the new San Francisco franchise. The Aces, who outshot the Bulls 44-19, controlled play throughout the game but found themselves down a goal heading into the final frame due to the inspired play of San Francisco netminder Thomas Heemskerk. All three locked-out NHLers paid dividends for the Aces tonight: Blue Jackets forward Brandon Dubinsky opened the floodgates with a power play marker in the first minute of the third period, Capitals forward Joey Crabb (1 G, 1 A) had his second multi-point game while registering a game-high nine shots on goal and the Lightning's Nate Thompson earned his first points of the season while managing to stay out of the sin-bin. The Aces (3-2-0) square off against the Bulls (2-2-2) again tonight in Anchorage.

Pat Nagle got the night off in goal and Daniel Milan remains out with an injury. Last year’s playoff hero, John Muse, made 23 saves in the Florida nets. Mike Ullrich had three assists for South Carolina. Florida scored twice in the second half of the third period to force overtime. Landry took a hooking penalty in overtime, thought the ‘Blades were able to kill it off. The shootout was tied, 2-2, after two rounds, including Hutchings’ goal. The Stingrays won the skills competition, 3-2, in five rounds. South Carolina will drive up to Orlando for a game on Thursday night before returning to southwest Florida for a Friday contest.

After yesterday's sizable defeat at the hands of the Solar Bears, the Everblades came to Orlando looking to spoil the inaugural home opener for their new in-state and divisional rival. To that end, Florida got on the right path, taking two first period leads, the first when Brandon MacLean found the net with what appeared to be fairly weak wrist-shot that handcuffed John Curry, Orlando's netminder, and when Matt Beca found space on a Florida power play, took a cross-ice feed at the right hash and quickly snapped the puck over a sprawling Curry. Both leads were short-lived, however, as Orlando found a way to make the most of its few chances in the first period. Pat Nagle, who got stronger as the game wore on, was first beat by a mid-range shot that he may not have seen much of but seemed to go through him. Then, with the period winding down, Orlando defenseman Michael Wilson took Solar Bear captain Ryan Cruthers' pass from the bench boards as he jumped into the neutral zone and began what should have been a routine 1-on-1 challenge but, after taking the puck to his backhand and protecting it, beat the Florida defender wide and somehow chipped the puck past Nagle, who looked to be in good position. Orlando took the longest-lasting lead when Solar Bear forward Nick Peterson drew Charles Landry to him as he stopped just inside the Florida blueline, then layed a nice, on-side touch pass to a hard-charging Danis-Pepin who deftly avoided the reaching stick-check of Bobby Raymond and capped the sequence with a heavy, well-placed wrist-shot that beat Nagle's glove just two minutes into the second period. The last scoring action before the shootout came when Beca scored his second of the game during a frantic goalmouth scramble that tied the game at three goals apiece with just a couple minutes into the final frame. The shootout went twelve rounds, with Orlando's Medvec and Hutchings the only two shooters to score on either goalie until Sean Lorenz beat Nagle five-hole and Curry squelched Florida's last hope when he subsequently came to the top of his crease to stop Aaron Bogosian's wrist-shot attempt from in-close and seal the win for the Solar Bears.

Alex Hutchings didn't register an official point (though he scored in the shootout) but had a good showing tonight, playing effectively at even-strength, the PP and even on the PK in a few instances. Results-wise, he probably deserved better, as he rifled several shots that narrowly missed or were blocked and also sprung Florida forward Corey Trivino for an even-strength breakaway that Curry was able to thwart. Hutchings also showed a lot of moxie, taking plenty of punishment in stride tonight and even managing to dish out a few decent licks of his own. Landry's night, on the other hand, was more of a mixed bag. Despite playing big, mostly uneventful minutes, Landry got sloppy with outlets and in-zone passes on several occasions, the most notable instance when he used the end boards behind his net to blindly bank a pass to his partner which was intercepted by a hustling Solar Bear forward and nearly became a goal.

Other thoughts and notes: Florida outshot Orlando 35-29 tonight, although at one point, midway through the third, the shots were 30-14 Florida before Orlando generated an impressive late-game surge. Perhaps strong emotions and some extra aggression should have been expected given this was the fourth meeting in just over a week's time between the two clubs; the game was, much to the crowd's delight, very physical for much of the game and, as a result, tempers flared early and often, especially after whistles. Both teams, consequently, combined for 59 penalty minutes. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent, still nursing injuries, sat again. Florida (2-1-1) plays host this Wednesday to South Carolina (2-1-0) as part of a two-game set.

The previously undefeated Grizzlies held Alaska's trio of NHL forwards (Crabb, Dubinsky and Thompson) scoreless, despite their combined 13 shots on goal, in what turned out to be a goalie duel. Alaska's Mark Guggenberger earned a 23-save shutout but Utah's Andrew Engelage did all he could for the Grizzlies, stopping 38 of 39 shots against. Chris Haltigin scored the lone goal in the contest early in the third period after the puck found its way to him in the high slot as a result of a strong Aces forecheck generated a turnover. With the win tonight, Alaska halted its two-game losing streak. The Aces (2-2-0) will continue their home stand next Friday when the new San Francisco Bulls franchise (2-1-0) comes to Anchorage for a three-game weekend set.

The final score about says it all as the Orlando Solar Bears took the Florida Everblades to the proverbial woodshed this evening in Estero. The game quickly got ugly midway through the first period as Orlando scored four times in a six-minute span, putting Florida in a hole that would be four goals deeper by the end of the second. Ryan Cruthers (2 G) and Matt Sisca (3 A) led the onslaught for the Solar Bears, which outshot the Everblades in each period and 49 to 22 for the game en route to the new franchise's first win this season and in its extremely brief history. Carolina Hurricanes prospect G John Muse, who stopped 20 of 25 shots on the night, started the game for Florida but was finally pulled after Kyle Medvec made it 5-0 Solar Bears roughly seven minutes into the second. Pat Nagle would fare only slightly better in relief. Alex Hutchings (who tallied his first point of the season, an assist on Florida's first goal which came in the final frame) and Charles Landry were in lineup tonight and, on a night where the opponent scored seven even-strength goals, both managed to avoid minus ratings. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent sat due to injuries. It will be interesting to see if and how Florida Head Coach Greg Poss will tinker with the lineup for tomorrow night, when Florida (2-1-0) travels to Orlando (1-1-1) in what will be the Solar Bears inaugural home opener at the Amway Center.

For the second consecutive night, the 'Blades got the best of the Solar Bears but this time, with all of the players assigned to the Everblades from the Crunch in action, they didn't need overtime to get the job done. The going was good early for the Everblades as they jumped out to a lead which they would never relinquish just a few minutes into the game. Matt Marquardt (twice), Justin Shugg and Maxime Langelier-Parent all scored for the Everblades, with Langelier-Parent, in his season debut, burying the dagger late in the third period with a short-handed empty-netter. Pat Nagle, seeing his first action this season, was sharp in net for Florida, stopping all but two of 35 shot attempts by Orlando. Charles Landry found the stat-sheet with a primary assist on Marquardt's first goal, the first of the game, and with a tripping minor late in the third. Alex Hutchings and Daniel Milan were quiet tonight. Up next for Florida (2-0-0) is another weekend set yet again against the Orlando Solar Bears (0-2-0) although the games will be split between Estero (Friday) and Orlando (Saturday).

Tonight the Aces, featuring Lightning's Nate Thompson and the Blue Jackets' Brandon Dubinsky, fell short against an Eagles club that got a dandy of a pro debut from G Adam Brown, who turned away 23 of the 24 shots he faced for the win. It was a penalty-filled contest but both teams struggled to make the other pay for their infractions as Alaska went 0-for-10 and Colorado, faring little better, went 1-for-9 on the power-play. Nate Thompson picked up a roughing minor in the second period and managed the second-most shot attempts for his team. Alaska (1-1-0) now returns home to host the Utah Grizzlies (2-0-0) next Friday and Saturday.

Crunch Make 3 Cuts Ahead of Opener

Syracuse has announced that they have sent Lightning prospects Alex Hutchings and Charles Landry to Florida of the ECHL along with AHL signee Maxime Langelier-Parent. The only surprise in the group might be Hutchings, who looked strong down the stretch in limited action for Norfolk last season after scoring 12 goals and 24 points in 23 games last season with the Everblades.

Bolts Increase the Population of Syracuse

The Tampa Bay Lightning assigned 18 players to the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL ahead of what appears to be an NHL lockout, vice president and general manager Steve Yzerman announced.

Among the players moving to New York are reigning AHL Most Valuable Player Cory Conacher, former No.6 overall pick Brett Connolly, and last year's late-season signing, J.T. Brown. Others include recently signed prospects Vladislav Namestnikov, Danick Gauthier, Dmitry Korobov, and Riku Helenius. The additions of Connolly, Brown, Namestnikov, and Korobov will make the Crunch a stronger team, which is scary considering they were already among the favorites to claim the Calder Cup.

The full list of new Syracuse residents includes forwards Brown, Conacher, Connolly, Gauthier, Alex Hutchings, Tyler Johnson, Alex Killorn, Namestnikov, Ondrej Palat, Richard Panik; defensemen Mark Barberio, Radko Gudas, Korobov, Charles Landry, Dan Milan; and goaltenders Helenius, Dustin Tokarski, and Pat Nagle.

We'll offer some opinions shortly on who could end up in ECHL Florida with the Everblades and who likely stays in Syracuse.

Prospect of the Week (6.1.12)

This season Bolt Prospects introduced our Prospect of the Week award, an honor (virtually) given to one Tampa Bay Lightning prospect for their on-ice contributions.

We wanted to highlight prospects throughout the year to help fans get better acquainted with the next round of Lightning stars while recognizing the prospect’s achievement on the ice.

This week’s (belated) BP Prospect of the Week award goes to … Sebastien Piche, Charles Landry, and Pat Nagle (Florida Everblades, ECHL).

These three Lightning prospects helped the Florida Everblades to their first Kelly Cup championship last Wednesday when the ‘Blades topped the Las Vegas Wranglers, 3-2, on an overtime goal by rookie Brendan MacLean.

Champions!

Florida won their first Kelly Cup championship on Wednesday night when rookie Brandon MacLean scored early in overtime on a two-on-one to defeat the Las Vegas Wranglers, 3-2. MacLean is a former Sault Ste. Marie Greyhound who recently completed four years at Carleton University in Canada. He only played 13 regular season games for the ‘Blades.

Florida jumped out to a 2-0 lead, but eventually allowed Las Vegas to tie the game in the third period before MacLean played hero. Former Lightning draft pick and current Norfolk Admirals property Kevin Quick had a strong defensive play in overtime that eventually led to the winning goal. Lightning prospect Charles Landry played at least one shift in overtime and Sebastien Piche was among the top minute eaters for the ‘Blades all night on the blueline.

The Everblades had made the finals two previous times, but this is their first championship. Carolina prospect John Muse, who stopped 41 of 43 shots to get the win in Game 5, was named playoff MVP. Lightning prospect Pat Nagle filled in for him against Elmira and played well, including earning two shutouts. He played twice against Kalamazoo, winning Game 1, but dropping Game 2. He was replaced by Muse in Game 3.

Lightning prospect Alex Hutchings was an alternate captain for much of the season for Florida, but earned a promotion to AHL Norfolk and has been with the Admirals for the last few months.

Congratulations to the Florida Everblades, 2011-2012 Kelly Cup Champions.

One more. Florida pulled within one game of winning the Kelly Cup by defeating the Wranglers, 3-1, at home on Tuesday night. Lightning prospect Charles Landry and Norfolk Admirals property Kevin Quick were back in the lineup for the Everblades. Neither registered a point, but Quick was plus-2.
