After falling behind 3-0, the Thunder once again mount a spirited comeback scoring the next three and forcing overtime. Unfortunately, hanging 49 shots on the Tulsa goalie wasn't enough to avoid the shootout loss. Lightning prospects Danick Gauthier and Daniel Milan both notched assists, with Gauthier's coming on the power play. Gauthier was one of four Thunder shooters that failed to convert in the skill contest to decide the outcome. Wichita hosts the Mavericks from Missouri Saturday night before traveling back to Tulsa for a rematch against these Oilers.

A night after being scratched, Lightning camper Mike Aviani pots Florida's 3rd goal of the 1st period in Sunday afternoon's road game victory over the Gwinnett Gladiators. Jeff Costello assisted on Aviani's goal, the night after scoring his first professional goal. Allen York was rather pedestrian in net, allowing 3 goals on 22 shots, but when your offense puts a touchdown up on the scoreboard you don't have to be stellar to get the win. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev was whistled 55 seconds into the game for his first penalty of the season. Both teams had their power play clicking at 50%, but the high octane Everblade offense overwhelmed the Gladiators amid a 40 shot barrage. Florida captured all six points on the weekend three-in-three road trip, and the Everblades return to Estero 1st on the table in the East Division and 2nd in the conference behind Fort Wayne. Gwinnett makes the 9-hour trip down I-75 from Duluth to Estero for a back-to-back rematch against the Everblades next Friday and Saturday night.

Wichita earned a much needed victory Sunday afternoon against the visiting Missouri Mavericks, and once again Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier was in the thick of the scoring. Gauthier was credited with the primary assists on both of the Thunder's first and third goals, with that 3rd goal being a crucial power play insurance marker with just 85 seconds left in the game. Gauthier finishes the 4-game week with a gaudy stat line of 2-4-5 with 20 shots and a +3 rating. The Thunder next plays Tuesday night in Tulsa against the Oilers.

Jeff Costello notched his first pro goal Saturday night on the road in Charleston. Knowing the tough and pesky game that Costello plays, you might think it was a greasy lunch pail type of goal, but you would be wrong. Costello flipped a slick backhander 5-hole for Florida's fourth goal of the game. More good news from the Low Country with Lightning defensive prospect Artem Sergeev returning to the lineup after missing a couple of games with an injury. Florida next plays Sunday afternoon in Duluth against the Gladiators.

Wichita mounted a spirited comeback in the final two minutes of the game behind a goal and primary assist Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier. Unfortunately, the Thunder could not manufacture the equalizer having gone down 3-0 during the first two periods. A bit difficult to justify losing 3-2 with the opposition only putting 17 shots on goal. Thunder goalie Tyler Bunz needs to be better there. For those keeping score at home, Gauthier is 4-3-7 with 20 shots in 7gp since joining the Thunder. Wichita hosts the Missouri Mavericks Sunday afternoon.

Rapid City doubled up the Thunder Tuesday night 6-3 despite a power-play goal by Bolt prospect Danick Gauthier and the helper on Wichita's 3rd goal. Fellow prospect Daniel Milan gets his second fighting major of the season in garbage time with 30 seconds left to play. The Thunder have dropped four straight including a shootout loss and are now 6th on the table in the seven-team Central Division. A rematch against this same Rush squad awaits Wichita Wednesday night.
