Alex Hutchings scored to give Florida a lead a few minutes into the third period but Colorado evened the score less than a minute later and eventually came out out of the contest with the second point after coming out on top in a five-round shootout. Hutchings registered the primary assist on Mathieu Roy's power play strike in the late stages of the second period before potting his goal, which also came with the man-advantage, by maneuvering his way into enough space to rifle a shot past Jones high and glove-side to give him his fourth point in the past two games. Florida, which was nearly doubled up in shots, 38-21, got a big offensive boost with its power play, going 3-for-8 with the man-advantage, but the penalty-killing was less impressive as the Eagles scored twice while the Everblades were down a man. Both teams scored a power play goal and were a combined 2-9 with the man-advantage. After going scoreless the past couple games, Landry had one of the helpers on the game's opening goal when Aaron Bogosian gathered the puck behind the net and buried his wraparound attempt. Nagle sat in favor of Carolina G prospect John Muse for the second-straight game. Maxime Langelier-Parent remains inactive for the Everblades. Florida (7-6-4, 18 PTS) finishes its three-game set and concludes its current road trip against Colorado (7-7-3, 17 PTS) Saturday night.

Crunch Lose to Senators on Fluke Goal, 2-1


By Jeremy Houghtaling

It was a play Mark Barberio had done many times before, but it was an unfamiliar result.

The Syracuse Crunch defenseman accepted the reverse pass from his parter, Jared Nightingale, and looked to make a pass to Alex Killorn in front of his team's net. Instead of its intended target, the puck appeared to deflect off goaltender Dustin Tokarski's stick, and found its way into the back of the Crunch net.

The fluke goal 1:11 into the final frame proved to be the difference, as Syracuse snapped a three-game winning streak with a 2-1 loss to the Binghamton Senators at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.
