    Seeing that there were only four men on the ice after the first Syracuse Crunch line change, Philip-Michael Devos quickly jumped on the ice to join the play.

    The center accepted a pass from Richard Panik and fed it to an open Tyler Johnson, who fired the puck past Hershey Bears goalie Braden Holtby to give the Crunch a one-goal lead less than a minute into the game.

    "I looked and there were only four guys on the ice, so I'm going to go," Devos said. "I jumped on, and four seconds later, the puck was in the net."

    Bears no match for Nacho.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed 1 goal on 21 shots for the victory. Light work. He only faced a whopping 2 shots the entire First Period. 2! Life is good for the former WHL star.

    First Period
    SYR Johnson, (9) (Devos, Panik), 0:59
    SYR Labrie, (1) (Conacher, Cote), 16:46

    Second Period
    SYR Connolly, (4) (Brown, Taormina), 14:28 (PP)
    SYR Barberio, (3) (Oberg, Killorn), 16:00
    HER Carman, (2) (Orlov, Stafford), 18:56
    SYR Labrie, (2) (Barberio, Conacher), 19:23

    Third Period
    SYR Gauthier, (1) (Wyman), 16:54

    Pierre-Cedric Labrie (pictured), Mark Barberio, and Cory Conacher were the game's three stars. For Nacho, the night produced his first two goals of the season, as both Braden Holtby and Dany Sabourin were forced to bow before the might and the power that is PCL.

    Panik attack, y'all. That's a 5 game scoring streak for the pride of Martin, Slovakia.

    Congratulations to Danick Gauthier on the first goal of his professional career.

    Syracuse pounded Hershey for having the simple audacity to step foot in their rink, outshooting the Bears 40-21 in the contest. The challenge steps up a tier or two tomorrow, as they face the more NHL-talent loaded Adirondack Phantoms. Twelve games into the campaign, Syracuse holds a 2 point lead over the Penguins in the division with 2 games in hand, and their 44 goal are tied for tops in the conference even though they've played one less game than Springfield.

    SM-Liiga (Finland)
    Ilves 1 vs. Assat 3

    Anders Lindback, Ilves, L, 2.02 GAA, 31/33 (.939 SV%)
    Season totals: 5 GP, 1-3-1, 0 SO, 3.75 GAA, 138/157 (.879 SV%)

    Anders Lindback had his best game since his SM-Liiga debut a few weeks back but an empty-net goal in the final minute helped Assat edge past Ilves Friday night. Assat broke a scoreless tie in the second period when Michael Ryan scored twice in a three-minute span as the second period winding down. Kai Kantola helped Ilves make things somewhat interesting by scoring early in the third period but further offensive momentum proved difficult to generate. Ilves (league-worst 19 points) will have some extended time to prepare for their next game against the Espoo Blues (36 points) next Wednesday. Ilves won the last match between the two clubs, 4-3, earlier this month.

    Season totals: 21 GP, 10-15-25, +8, 45 PIM

    D Slater Koekkoek, PBO: 1-1-2, +2, 0 PIM, *Third Star*
    Season totals: 22 GP, 3-15-18, -14, 18 PIM

    Koekkoek earned the game’s Third Star for a 1+1 night as the Petes halted their 7-game losing streak with a win over Ottawa. Koekkoek has tied last year’s point total of 18, but in four fewer games. As has been well documented, Koekkoek’s season ended last year after a shoulder injury at the end of November. With the win, the Petes pulled within one point of the 67’s for second-last place in the league.

    Russia 5 @ Team WHL 2

    D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
    Series totals: 6 GP, 0-0-0, E, 6 PIM

    D Artem Sergeev, RUS: Did not play

    Russia finished the Subway Super Series with a record of 3-2-0-1 after defeating the WHL, 5-2, on Thursday night in Victoria, B.C. Top Lightning prospect Andrei Vasilevskiy served as backup to Andrei Makarov, who started his second game in a row for Russia. He took a shutout into the shootout in Russia's first game against the WHL.

    Russia wanted to bring over a strong representation this year in preparation for the upcoming World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. It's safe to say they succeeded, as they won the series for the first time.

    Season totals: 12 GP, 5-7-12, +1, 17 PIM

    D Charles Landry, FLA: 0-0-0, -2, 0 SOG, 0 PIM

    G Pat Nagle, FLA: Did not play
    Season totals: 7 GP, 3-2-1, 0 SO, 3.79 GAA, 193 S / 218 SA (.885 SV%)

    Florida took a 3-1 lead into the first intermission before later squandering a 5-3 lead in the third period and losing the game in overtime when Greenville's Brendan Connolly took a cross-ice dish from former Everblade Sebastien Piche and delivered a wrister that beat Muse high. Connolly's goal came with just twenty seconds remaining in the extra session. Florida had a good night on special teams, scoring on three of its four power play opportunities and killing off all but one of Greenville's five stints with the man-advantage, but Greenville countered by carrying even-strength play for the bulk of the second and third periods. Hutchings, who earned an assist on Florida's first goal after he fired a shot Brandon MacLean buried on the rebound, extended his scoring streak to four games (during which he has 5 G and 2 A). Landry was quiet and Nagle rode the pine tonight. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. Florida (5-5-3) now heads to Charleston to face South Carolina (6-9-1) for a two-game weekend set that starts tomorrow night. Both teams are currently tied at the bottom of the South Division standings with 13 points.

    Elitserien (Sweden)
    Brynas 0 vs. HV 71 3

    Johan Harju, Brynas, 0-0-0, -2, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 22 GP, 7-4-11, -1, 29 PIM

    Gustaf Wesslau stopped all 32 shots he faced to propel HV 71 to its fourth-consecutive win over Brynas and atop the league standings. Brynas fell behind early in the first period when Mattias Karlsson and David Petrasek capitalized on even-strength scoring chances just minutes apart. Brynas continued to trail by two until Robin Rahm was pulled to give Brynas an extra attacker in the final two minutes of the game and Andreas Jamtin added an empty-netter for HV 71. This was the 14th game Lightning overage prospect Johan Harju was held pointless this season. Brynas (9-7-3-3, 36 PTS) now has a couple days to rest before playing host to MODO (8-9-1-4, 30 PTS), which Brynas has has had recent success against at home having defeated MODO the last four times the teams have played in Gavle.

    Alaska Aces 4 @ Colorado Eages 3

    F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-1-1, -1, 5 SOG, 0 PIM
    Season totals: 13 GP, 1-7-8, -2, 16 PIM

    Scott Gomez, a recent addition to the Aces roster, scored a power play goal early in the third period that helped Alaska (9-4-0) outlast Colorado (6-5-2) and, in doing so, earn its fourth-straight victory Wednesday night. Joey Crabb, Gary Nunn and Jarred Smith also scored for Alaska, which outshot Colorado 38-31 for the game, and G Mark Guggenberger earned his eighth win. The Aces had to battle back from three separate one-goal deficits before finally taking the lead, which they did with more opportunistic and effective special teams play, converting two of three opportunities with the man advantage and even scoring short-handed while Colorado squandered six power play chances. Thompson earned his secondary assist on the locked-out NHLer Joey Crabb's tally while the Aces were a man down late in the first period which tied the game at two. Both teams will square off again in Anchorage on Friday night.

    Russia 0 @ Team WHL 1 (SO)

    D Nikita Nesterov, RUS: 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM
    Series totals: 5 GP, 0-0-0, E, 4 PIM

    D Artem Sergeev, RUS: Did not play

    G Andrei Vasilevskiy, RUS: Did not play
    Series totals: 1-2-0, 3.01 GAA, .903 sv%

    After 60 scoreless minutes, Team WHL scored three times on four attempts to beat the Russians in the shootout Wednesday in Vancouver.

    Hunter Shinkurak, Mark McNeill and Sam Reinhart each tallied goals in the shootout, and WHL netminder Laurent Broissant stopped all three shots he faced. During regulation, the Flames prospect stopped 30 shots and Andei Makarov made 35 saves in the Russian net.

    Lightning prospect Nikita Nesterov, who wore an A for Russia, was whistled for a pair of minor penalties in the third period, once for interference at the 2:55 mark and once for holding at 12:59. Shinkurak went to the box for a coincidental minor (unsportsmanlike conduct for embellishment) with Nesterov on the latter penalty.

    Team WHL went 0-for-3 on the power play, while Russia went 0-for-2 with the man-advantage.

    Trailing in points 8-7, Russia (2-2-0-1) wraps up the Subway Series against the WHL in Victoria, B.C. Thursday.
