Nagle, Pat

AHL Game Day: 4-21-13 Senators at Crunch

Get away day at War Memorial.

BNG-5
SYR-1

Pat Nagle allowed 5 goals on 37 shots for the loss. That was Nagle's second appearance of his AHL career and his first decision as the Crunch threw out a B lineup and B effort with nothing much to play for in the last regular season game.

First Period
BNG Cowick, (16) (Grant, Schneider), 14:13

Second Period
BNG Grant, (19) (Wideman), 1:56
BNG Ceci, (1) (Da Costa, Stone), 4:28

Third Period
SYR Sustr, (2) (Barberio, Sexton), 6:47 (PP)
BNG Schneider, (17) (Cowick), 12:13
BNG Robinson, (2) (Cannone), 19:17

Dan Sexton was the game's third star.

Tyler Johnson was not allowed to sniff the ice. Not surprising. Artem Sergeev made his AHL debut in the game. Again, not surprising. The kids were going to play in this one.

With Portland getting thumped by Bridgeport 4-1, Syracuse's first round opponent is now set. The third seeded Crunch will draw the sixth seeded Pirates. To be honest, if I had to pick an opponent, Portland's not the scariest one on the board. When you look at their lineup, they have some nice defensemen but lack scoring depth up front and, above all, their goaltending doesn't really terrify you. This first round series may be the toughest one for Syracuse to get past, so I am fairly relieved they didn't draw a team like Wilkes-Barre/Scranton right away.

Florida, which struck first and rattled off six of the game's first seven goals, swept the four-game series with Orlando to conclude the regular season in convincing fashion. At the end of the evening, the Everblades again found themselves tied in points with Gwinnett for the South Division title and the third-seed in the pending playoffs but the Gladiators hold the tiebreaker so Florida instead takes the fourth-seed and is slotted to face Elmira in the first-round. Jesse Decker stopped 25 of 28 shots to backstop the Everblades to yet another victory with him in net. Deckert finishes his brief regular season 9-1-1 with a team-best 2.40 GAA and .916 SV%. Dan Milan (scratch), Alex Hutchings (AHL) and Pat Nagle (AHL) were again inactive. Florida and Elmira are scheduled to begin quarterfinals action Friday night.

Florida struck twice in the first period and three more times in the final frame before Orlando was able to muster a single goal of its own en route to a decisive and fourth-straight victory. The win pushed the Everblades into a first-place tie with Gwinnett for the the South Division crown and the current fourth-seed spot in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Gwinnett holds the tiebreaker while both clubs have just a single game remaining, so only an Everblades victory and a Gladiators loss will see Florida take the South Division title and thereby the third-seed for the upcoming playoffs. Jesse Deckert stopped 28 of 29 Solar Bears shots to improve his record to an impressive 8-1-1. Deckert also boasts a team-best 2.34 GAA and .918 SV%. Dan Milan was a scratch while Alex Hutchings and Pat Nagle remain with AHL Syracuse. Florida (38-22-11, 87 PTS) closes its regular season at home against Orlando (28-36-7, 63 PTS) Saturday night.

Florida fell behind 1-0 early in the first period before rattling off four consecutive goals over the next nearly 40:00 of action, then outscored their hosts 4-2 in what time remained. The win helped the Everblades cushion their hold on second-place in the South Division and their current fifth-seed spot in the Eastern Conference playoff standings. Florida now has a three-point lead with only a game in hand on South Carolina, so the combination of an Everblades win and a Road Warriors loss will ensure Florida doesn't lose any ground. Jesse Deckert, who stopped 22 of 25 shots in the match, bumped his record to 6-1-1. Not bad for a guy signed to a try-out contract. Dan Milan, who was out of the lineup the past few games, returned to action. Alex Hutchings and Pat Nagle remain with AHL Syracuse. Florida (36-22-11, 83 PTS), with just three games remaining in the regular season, will stick around to hit the Amway Center ice against Orlando (27-34-7, 61 PTS) again Wednesday night.

Florida, which entered the second period trailing 1-0 after Cincinnati notched a power play late in the initial frame, rallied with back-to-back shorthanded goals by Rocco Carzo and tacked on three more goals to clinch a playoff spot and move back into second-place in the South Division. The Everblades hold a one-point lead over Greenville and South Carolina with games in hand on both. After getting shelled the night before, Jesse Deckert returned to previous form, earning his fifth win in seven appearances by stopping 23 of 24 Cyclones shots. Charles Landry, who had the primary helper Florida's first goal, was again the Lightning's lone prospect in the lineup with Dan Milan inactive and both Alex Hutchings and Pat Nagle up with AHL Syracuse. Florida (35-22-11, 81 PTS) will now close out its regular season with four-game, home-and-home series Orlando (27-33-7, 61 PTS) beginning Tuesday in Orlando.

Florida was able to trim a 2-0 deficit late in the second period but Cincinnati responded with another strike before the second intermission and two more goals in the first half of the final frame to put the game out of reach for the hosts. The Everblades outshout the Cyclones 36-28 for the match with the bulk (20) of those chances generated in the second period. With the loss, Florida dropped to fourth-place in the South Division, though it holds three games in hand on Gwinnett and two on both South Carolina and Greenville. Charles Landry was the Lightning's lone prospect in the lineup with Dan Milan a scratch and both Alex Hutchings and Pat Nagle previously recalled to AHL Syracuse. Florida (34-22-11, 79 PTS) and Cincinnati (41-18-8, 90 PTS) take the ice again Saturday night.

Florida, which narrowly outshot South Carolina 25-22 for the match, scored just a minute into overtime to take sole possession of 2nd-place in the South Division. The Everblades continue to trail division-leading Gwinnett, which won its fourth-straight game Sunday, by four points and now have a tenuous one-point lead over both South Carolina and Greenville. Alex Hutchings had a big night, registering his first points since returned from Syracuse. Hutchings, who opened the game's scoring late in the first period, struck after he planted himself outside the paint and put his stick on a centering feed from Mathieu Roy. He also had the secondary assist on Mike Ratchuk's game-winner in overtime. Pat Nagle sat in favor of Jesse Deckert, who stopped 19 of 22 shots to boost his record to 4-0-1 withe the Everblades. Florida (34-21-11, 79 PTS) next plays host to Cincinnati (40-18-8, 88 PTS), which has already clinched the North Division, on Friday.

Florida rallied from a two-goal deficit in the second period before allowing South Carolina its second power play tally of the game midway through the final frame and to tack on an empty netter. With the win, the Stingrays moved into a tie with the Everblades for 2nd-place in the South Division though Florida holds two games in hand. Both teams now trail division-leading Gwinnett by four points with the regular season rapidly approaching its conclusion. Charles Landry, who has spent chunks of the past couple months with Syracuse, notched his first goal for Florida since January 20th after having gone eight games without finding the net. Pat Nagle, after turning in a brilliant performance on Wednesday, took the loss for the Everblades. Florida (33-21-11, 77 PTS) and South Carolina(35-25-7, 77 PTS) will square off again late Sunday afternoon in yet another crucial match for both clubs.

Florida gave up a first period lead within a couple minutes of earning it but eventually took advantage of a late even-strength tally to down divisional rival South Carolina. The win put Florida into a first-place tie with Gwinnett for the South Division lead. The Everblades, who ratcheted up the offense a notch in hitting 40 shots on goal against the Stingrays, also hold a game in hand on the Gladiators. Danick Gauthier notched his third assist, a primary dish on the power play approaching the midpoint of the first, of the season. It was Gauthier's third-straight game with a point and the fourth time in five games he registered at least a goal or an assist. Though he wasn't credited as being one of the stars of the game, Pat Nagle, back in net for Florida after being assigned from AHL Syracuse following the return of Cedrick Desjardins to the Crunch, turned in a stellar performance with 29 stops on 30 shots against. Alex Hutchings also was back in the lineup for the Everblades after being returned by AHL Syracuse. Florida (33-20-11, 77 PTS) continues its five-game home stand Friday night when it squares of against South Carolina(34-25-7, 75 PTS) in the second of three consecutive matches the two teams will play against each other.

I can't tell you how strange it is to see original Bolt Prospects alumni Paul Ranger come back and help trounce the farm team.

Syracuse has back-to-back games at St. John's on Friday and Saturday. There are 18 games left in the regular season and Syracuse is tied with Springfield at 75 points for the top spot of the East with the Falcons holding 3 games in hand. So, if they want home ice throughout, they need to snap out of this slump quick.
