It was an unusual recipe for a win but Florida scored shorthanded three different times to send South Carolina, for now, to the bottom of the South division standings. The Stingrays took the initial lead before the Everblades reeled off four special teams goals in less than ten minutes time spanning the first and second periods. Florida's Mathieu Roy had the power play marker which tied the game at one; Matt Marquardt, Trevor Bruess and Aaron Bogosian also scored for the Everblades. Hutchings, who earned last week's Player of the Week honors, extended his point-scoring streak to five games with an assist on Florida's second goal by Marquardt, which came on a 2-on-1 shorthanded rush that Marquardt finished with a sharp, elevated wrister. Hutchings has five goals and three assists during this span. Landry, with his assist, had his second point in the last three games and Nagle rebounded well after allowing seven goals against Gwinnett last Saturday to earn his fourth win of the season. Daniel Milan, who's been recovering from injury, returned to the lineup for the first time in over a month as the last game action he saw was the second game of the season against Orlando. Milan was the player in the sin-bin for Florida's two shorthanded tallies by Marquardt and Bruess. Maxime Langelier-Parent remains inactive. The Everblades (6-5-3, 15 PTS) and Stingrays (6-9-1, 13 PTS) renew hostilities again Saturday night in Charleston.

Alaska Aces 5 @ Colorado Eages 4 (OT)

F Nate Thompson, AK: 2-1-3, +2, 7 SOG, 0 PIM

With his first multi-goal game of the season, Nate Thompson helped spark Alaska to a comeback victory over Colorado Friday night which extended the Aces winning-streak to five games. Joey Crabb. Alaska kept Colorado netminder Kyle Jones busy, registering double-digit shot totals in each period and out-shooting their divisional rivals 40-25 for the game, but had to rally from a 3-1 first period deficit after Colorado, for the second straight game, capitalized on multiple scoring opportunities in the first period. Aces D Kane Lafranchise had a goal and an assist to mark a four-game scoring streak and G Mark Guggenberger earned his night win despite having a subpar night by his standards. Alaska (10-4-0, 20 PTS) and Colorado (6-5-3, 15 PTS) will close out their three-game set in Anchorage on Saturday night.

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.

San Francisco Bulls 1 @ Alaska Aces 4

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-2-2, +1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 5 GP, 0-2-2, -2, 8 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.

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.

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.

After a pre-game celebration of their 2012 Kelly Cup, the Blades started their season off by scraping past the newly resurrected Orlando Solar Bears franchise (affiliated with the Minnesota Wild) in overtime in front of an announced crowd of 6,847 at Germain Arena. Florida came out strong in the first period, scoring three, and headed into the third staked to a commanding 4-1 lead before surrendering it in a final frame where Florida was outshot 21 to 12. Carolina Hurricanes prospect G John Muse, who helped backstop the Everblades to last year's championship, made 43 saves on 47 Solar Bear shots for the game. Florida forward David Rutherford ended the game with his second tally of the night just 26 seconds into the extra session. Daniel Milan and Pat Nagle were the only Lightning prospects assigned to the Everblades who actually suited up but only Milan, who is looking to bounce back this season from an underwhelming 2011-2012 campaign, saw any action as Nagle served as the backup netminder. Alex Hutchings, Charles Landry and Maxime Langelier-Parent, who is signed to an AHL contract, were scratches. They were unavailable to play tonight due to travel but are expected in the lineup tomorrow night when Florida (1-0-0) plays host to Orlando (0-1-0) again.

ECHL Preseason Game Night: 10-5-12

The ECHL preseason got underway for the defending champion Florida Everblades on Friday night, as they the return of the Orlando Solar Bears with a 6-3 victory.

ORL – 3
FLA – 6

Lightning prospect Pat Nagle went the distance in net for the ‘Blades, stopping 29 of 32 shots. Dan Milan, playing his first professional game, was scoreless with a shot on goal and two penalty minutes.

The two teams face off again on Saturday night.

Crunch Make First Two Cuts

The Syracuse Crunch have announced that they have reassigned goaltender Pat Nagle and defenseman Daniel Milan to Florida of the ECHL. Nagle played in 39 games for the Everblades last season, while Milan is entering his rookie professional season.

Syracuse opens its season October 12th at Rochester.

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.

In what was probably the last junior game of his career, Adam Janosik (pictured) had a goal, assist, and was named second star as the Olympiques couldn’t hold a lead and fell to the Armada in overtime. A former third round pick of the Lightning, Janosik is up for a contract from the Lightning. If he’s not signed by June 1, he goes back in the draft. He could be signed by AHL Norfolk to a tryout agreement and play and practice with the team, or be assigned to ECHL Florida. There doesn’t appear to be any open spots with either club, however. Perhaps he’s brought in to practice with his future team.

Tigres fans have to be furious after their fourth-seeded club just got swept by the 13th-seeded team. At least this game was close, won in overtime by the Drakkar. The previous game was a blowout. Milan did not play in Game 4, which made Game 3 the final game of his junior career. He’s already signed to an NHL contract and like Janosik could join the organization in some fashion this year with a tryout agreement. If not, he’ll join next season. It’s been a disappointing year statistically for Milan, who had 40 points last season. While signed for his defense, few expected him to finish with 11 points in 62 games, especially in the wide-open QMJHL.

Coyotes pick and Team Canada WJC veteran Mark Visentin allowed five goals on 23 shots as Niagara had their 2-0 series lead completely erased by eighth-seeded Oshawa. Columbus pick Boone Jenner, a favorite of Bolt Prospects heading into the draft last summer, had a goal and two assists for the Gens. Former Lightning draft pick Brock Beukeboom was scoreless in Game 4 for Niagara. His rights were traded to the Blues in the Eric Brewer trade last year. He had 16 points in 47 games for Niagara this season.

Mercy. Saint John crushed Cape Breton for the third straight game, this time 8-2. They’ve scored 29 goals in three games. Gauthier was first star for his two goals on Tuesday. Minnesota prospect and former Sharks pick Charlie Coyle also had two goals to give him eight goals and 12 points in three games. He had an assist taken away from his six point game in Game 1. The slaughter will likely end Wednesday in Sydney in Game 4.

Janosik’s junior career may only have one game left in it as the Armada are on the verge of a sweep in their first round series with Gatineau. Game 4 is Wednesday night in the Olympiques barn. Janosik’s assist was his first point of the playoffs.

Fourth-seeded Victoriaville fell in an 0-3 hole in the series to the 13th seed, and did it by allowing a snowman in Game 3. The Tigres coach is likely in hot water considering Victoriaville had Memorial Cup aspirations not too long ago. The Drakkar can sweep the Tigres on Wednesday in Game 4.
