    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 1 @ Lukko 3

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 2.05 GAA, 25/27 (.926 SV%)
    Season totals: 8 GP, 2-5-1, 0 SO, 3.18 GAA, 252/278 (.906 SV%)

    Ilves squandered another sharp effort from Anders Lindback again, falling in regulation to Lukko after nearly being shutout until former Lightning draftee Matias Sointu scored to bring Ilves within a goal with just under two minutes remaining. Lukko scored the insurance goal soon after with Lindback pulled for the extra-attacker. Lindback has now posted a .910+ SV% in five of the eight starts, including the last four, he has made since joining his club. Excluding his second start against SaiPa during which he was blown up for seven goals, Lindback has posted a 2.65 GAA and .920 SV% on average backstopping the league's worst team. Ilves (4-15-3-3, 21 points) is off until Friday when they will host fourth-place Kalpa (11-7-5-4, 47 points), which is only, at the moment, a regulation victory from co-leading the league.

    Vasteras 4 vs. Orebro 2 (OT)

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-0-0, +1, 3 SOG, 2 PIM (high-sticking)
    Season totals: 8 GP, 2-1-3, +1, 6 PIM

    Mikael Backlund got back in the scoring column with an empty netter with time all but expired but Vasteras only narrowly managed a victory against Orebro as the visiting squad mounted a vigorous comeback attempt, scoring twice on fifteen shots while dictating play, in the third period. Tim Heed registered a goal and an assist for the second straight game. Vasteras (14-7-3-1, 49 PTS) travels to face league bottom-feeder Karlskrona (4-20-0-0, 12 PTS) on Sunday.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 5 vs. Linkopings 0

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 1-0-1, +1, 2 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 27 GP, 10-5-15, +3, 31 PIM

    Former Lightning netminder Johan Holmqvist stopped all thirty-three shots he faced and Sebastian Enterfeldt scored twice to lead Brynas, which had lost its last five home games, to a decisive shutout victory over visiting Linkopings. As a result, the gap between the two clubs in the league's standings narrowed to just three points. Johan Harju's power play goal early in the third period bolstered the home club's lead to 3-0. On the play, Harju skated unmarked between two defenders to the edge of the crease as the puck was muscled into the opposing corner behind the net to Jonas Nordquist. There, with attention fully on him, Nordquist fed a crisp pass that found Harju's sticktape which, with a half-empty net to place the puck, made for an easy tap-in. Brynas (10-8-3-6, 42 PTS) hosts Vaxjo (6-12-6-3, 33 PTS), which has lost six-straight to Brynas, on Thursday.

    Brendan Mikkelson, Vasteras, 0-0-0, E, 1 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 7 GP, 2-1-3, E, 4 PIM

    Vasteras came into the final period down two scores but Patrick Berglund and Matt Fornataro, formerly of the Bolts organization, gave the visiting squad two power play markers just minutes apart to send the game into overtime where Tim Heed would score the game-winner that put Vasteras on top. Fornataro also had two assists in the match. Aside from a single shot, Brendan Mikkelson was essentially blanked after scoring twice against Leksands last Tuesday. Vasteras (13-7-3-1, 46 PTS) returns home to face Orebro (11-8-2-3, 40 PTS) on Tuesday.

    D Jake Dotchin, OS: 0-1-1, E, 0 PIM

    The Sharks get bit by one of Syracuse's star rookies.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed one goal on 26 shots for the victory.

    First Period
    SYR Brown, (2) (Connolly, Cote), 2:14
    SYR Brown, (3) (Nightingale, Devos), 5:55
    SYR Johnson, (12) (Panik), 6:16
    WOR Kearns, (7) (Pelech, Kennedy), 16:37

    Second Period
    SYR Johnson, (13) (Killorn, Taormina), 13:33 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Korobov, (2) (Connolly, Brown), 14:05 (PP)
    SYR Brown, (4) (Connolly, Devos), 17:31

    J.T. Brown (pictured), Tyler Johnson, and Brett Connolly were the game's three stars. This was inevitable. J.T. Brown has too many gifts to not have an outburst like this from time to time, especially when he's playing with guys like Connolly who are just as talented and creative.

    Lost in the jet fuel fumes of Brown's game is the fact Tyler Johnson just pulled into the league lead in goals with 13 in 17 games. TJ could hit 60 goals this year. He's got one of the best shots in the league, amazing wheels, and a talented supporting cast around him. Conacher got all the awards last year, but we may well see Johnson carrying the bulk of the hardware in 2012-2013.

    The Panik attack hit 10 games today with an assist on one of Johnson's goals. There's one more game left on the schedule for Syracuse in November, and here's an interesting philosophical question for the league to ponder. If a player gets a point in every single game in a month, should not said player be the Player of the Month? Am I wrong? Right now, Richard Panik has 7 goals and 13 points in 10 November contests.

    Dmitry Korobov scoring his second goal of the season gives me an opportunity to dote on the young KHL transplant. At +12 he's tied for third in the AHL in +/-, and 2 goals and 5 points in his first 14 games in North America is nothing to sneeze at. The big Belarussian is going to get better as he continues to settle in, and he's already pretty darned good.

    Syracuse sits in first in the Eastern Conference, and has another 3 games in 3 nights weekend starting on Friday against the Penguins.

    Matt Forney (2 G, 1 A) and Chad Costello (1 G, 1 A) helped propel Colorado past Florida Saturday and clinch the three-game weekend set between the two clubs. After falling behind 2-0, the Everblades got on the board when Eagles defenseman Riley Nelson misplayed the puck in his own end, sending the puck towards, underneath G Adam Brown and into Colorado's goal. Brayden Irwin was credited with the lone Florida goal. Hutchings, who has had a November to remember with 12 points (8 G, 4 A) in 8 games, and put up three goals and an assist against Colorado in the first two games of the weekend series, was held scoreless. Charles Landry was called up to Syracuse before the match. Florida (7-7-4, 18 PTS) now returns home to rest up for Friday's tilt against division-rival Greenville (12-6-1, 25 PTS).

Brandon Dubinsky remains out due to injury. Next up on the docket for Alaska (13-5-0, 26 PTS) is a showdown with Stockton (11-3-1, 23 PTS), the other division leader in the Western conference, on Wednesday.
