It was a big night for Lightning prospect Alex Hutchings whose hat trick (video) helped propel Florida over Elmira in a game that got close towards the end before Hutchings was able to bury a breakaway opportunity with just under two minutes remaining to put the game out of reach. Hutchings scored for the second straight game and now has five points, sixteen shots and is +3 through four games to start November. Pat Nagle had the night off as Hurricanes prospect John Muse started in net for the Everblades and stopped 34 of 37 shots to earn his second win of the season, his first since October 12th against Orlando. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. Florida (5-4-2) returns to action tonight at home against a divisional foe, the Gwinnett Gladiators (9-3-1), who are currently atop the South division.

Hat tip to SwampHockey for passing along the footage of Hutchings' hat trick.

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-0-0, E, 5 SOG, 2 PIM (tripping)
Season totals: 11 GP, 0-6-6, -2, 16 PIM

Alaska, buoyed by Nick Mazzolini's two goals and Mark Guggenberger's 30 saves, held off Las Vegas Friday night. After drawing first blood with a power play tally, the Aces regained the lead late in the second period when Mazzonlini got his stick on the puck as it came through the the low slot, deflecting it past the Wranglers' Joe Fallon, who had a solid night himself turning away 35 shots including several stops during a 5-on-3 opportunity for Alaska midway through the third period. Las Vegas held Alaska's locked-out trio of Joey Crabb, Brandon Dubinsky and Nate Thompson in check tonight, as they collectively managed ten shots and were penalized twice. Alaska (7-4-0) continues its short series against Las Vegas (3-5-1) tomorrow night.

Florida found itself up 3-0 just past the halfway point of the first before Elmira soon after scored twice in under a minute to send the Everblades into the first intermission nursing a slight lead. However, unlike other recent games, Florida managed to extend their lead twice in the second and then close out a pressing Elmira squad in the final frame. Matt Marquardt got the high honors Wednesday night, scoring twice (including the game-winner) and registering the team high in shots for the game. Alex Hutchings and Pat Nagle didn't earn any honors tonight but, Hutchings, who was blanked the past two games, managed his third multipoint game of the season and Nagle, who was was well-tested, mostly held the fort for Florida. Hutchings also earned his first fighting major of the season as part of a melee midway through the final frame. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. Both teams have a rest day before the Everblades (4-4-2) and Jackals (6-3-0) go at it again on Friday night in Estero.

Florida surrendered two leads secured in the first period before having to attempt a comeback of its own that ultimately came up short Sunday afternoon. Florida, which ended up with a 35-23 shot advantage for the game, pelted Sabres prospect netminder Nathan Lieuwen with thirteen of them in the third period but could not follow up Bobby Raymond's late power play tally with another score. With a goal and assist each, Raymond and Matt Marquardt were Florida's standouts, though Alex Hutchings managed a game-high six shots on goal. For the second consecutive game former Everblade and NHLer Kendall McArdle (1 G, 1 A, +3) played a key role in securing Florida's demise. Marc-Olivier Vallerand, (1 G, 2 A, +2) also had a big night for the Road Warriors and even ended up with a Gordie Howe hat trick as he fought Landry late in the middle period. Sebastian Piche, a late addition last season's Kelley Cup championship squad thanks to the Lightning's trade deadline maneuvering, was also in the lineup for the Road Warriors. After playing in last night's loss, Nagle rested while Carolina prospect John Muse tended Florida's net. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. The Everblades (3-4-2), still at the bottom of the South Conference, return home to face the Atlantic-leading Elmira Jackals (6-2-0) on Wednesday.

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-0-0, -3, 5 SOG, 2 PIM (high-sticking)
Season totals: 9 GP, 0-5-5, -3, 14 PIM

Red-hot Stockton continued their winning ways by beating Alaska once again Sunday, this time with balanced scoring and steady goaltending from Tyler Bunz. Edmonton's Toni Rajala (1 G, 1 A, 6 SOG) and Harrison Reed (1 G, 2 A, 5 SOG) led the way for the Thunder, which enjoyed the edge in power play opportunities, two of which were converted, and was perfect in the penalty-killing department. Stockton managed to hold Alaska's big guns, namely locked-out NHLers Brandon Dubinsky and Joey Crabb, in check. Nate Thompson put up a team-high five shots on goal. The Aces (5-4-0) continue their road trip with a midweek showdown against the Pacific Division's Las Vegas Wranglers (3-3-1) on Wednesday.

Florida took an early one-goal lead Friday night but Greenville clawed back in the second period before surging ahead with just minutes remaining in the game. Brendan MacLean scored the lone Florida goal by tapping in a rebound created by a Matt Marquardt shot off the rush. It was two vets, Kendall McArdle, a former Everblade and NHLer, and Brendan Connolly, who helped lead the way for Greenville; McArdle had a goal and an assist and Connolly had the game-winner. Florida, which outshot Greenville 32-27, had its fair share of chances but could not solve Buffalo Sabres prospect Nathan Lieuwen. Pat Nagle played well also for the bulk of the game but could not come up with the big save when Greenville's Connolly came bearing in on him after an Everblades turnover in the waning minutes of regulation and beat Nagle glove-side. Hutchings saw his three-game scoring streak come to an end. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. The Everblades (3-3-2) play the Road Warriors (5-3-1) again tomorrow afternoon before returning home for a pair of midweek games.

Alaska Aces 4 @ Stockton Thunder 7

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-0-0, E, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 8 GP, 0-5-5, E, 12 PIM

Alaska and Stockton were actually neck-and-neck halfway through of the game. The the Thunder went on a scoring spree, tallying four goals in roughly ten minutes spanning the second and third period before the Aces managed to stop the bleeding and put up one final goal of their own. Alaska outshot Stockton 32-27 for the game. It was an ugly night for Alaska's Mark Guggenberger, who allowed five goals on eighteen shots before getting the hook late in the second forcing newly-signed netminder Brooks Ostergard, who stopped seven of nine shots, into action. Brandon Dubinsky, named the ECHL's Player of the Week on Wednesday, scored twice on four shots to give him his third consecutive multipoint game. Fellow locked-out NHLers Nate Thompson and Joey Crabb were quiet for the Aces, though Thompson did manage a neutral plus-minus on a night his team allowed five even-strength goals. The Aces (5-3-0) continue their road trip with a matinee game against the Thunder (6-1-1) on Sunday.

For the second night in a row, Florida spotted their opponent an early two-goal lead before battling back to tie the game in the second period. However, the Everblades came up short against the Road Warriors on Saturday. Greenville played a strong road game, staying disciplined (the Road Warriors gave a 'Blades squad that had averaged roughly six power play opportunities coming into the match just two chances) and countered surges by Florida with effective shifts of their own to help turn momentum. Florida was narrowly outshot (34-32) for the first time since the 8-2 drubbing at the hands of the Orlando Solar Bears last weekend. Carolina goalie prospect John Muse took the loss for Florida, but turned in a solid 31-save performance. Justin Shugg and Corey Trivino scored for the Everblades, the second in as many nights for both Florida forwards. Alex Hutchings and Charles Landry, who figured in the scoring with helpers, were the only Lightning prospects in action as Pat Nagle rested after playing last night and Daniel Milan was scratched yet again due to injury. Hutchings extended his scoring streak to three games and Landry notched his assist on the power play. Florida (3-2-2) is next in action this upcoming Friday night when the Everblades head to Greenville to square off against the Road Warriors (3-3-0) again.

San Francisco Bulls 2 @ Alaska Aces 5

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-3-3, +2, 1 SOG, 2 PIM (unsportsmanlike conduct)
Season totals: 6 GP, 0-5-5, E, 10 PIM

That Alaska led San Francisco for all but 31 seconds of the entire game on Saturday night was due in large part to the contributions of the dynamic duo that was Brandon Dubinsky (3 G, 1 A, 8 SOG) and Nate Thompson, who had the primary assists on all of Dubinsky's goals. It was the best showing, statistically, so far this season for both locked-out NHL forwards. Defenseman Chris Haltigin also had a strong offensive game for Alaska, scoring what proved to be the game-winner on the power play, an assist on a late insurance marker and registering five shots on net. The Aces (4-2-0) and Bulls (2-3-2) meet again Sunday in Anchorage to complete their three-game set.
