    Tic goes 3-0-0-0 for the weekend.


    Dustin Tokarski allowed just 1 goal on 21 shots to collect his third victory of the weekend and the season. He came within 1:57 of the shutout before Phillipe Dupuis popped in a power play goal to spoil the bid.

    First Period
    SYR Aulie, (1) (Palat, Connolly), 3:38
    SYR Conacher, (4) (Connolly, Palat), 16:03 (PP)
    SYR Johnson, (5) (Barberio, Killorn), 17:54 (PP)

    Second Period

    Third Period
    WBS Dupuis, (2) (Dumoulin, Reese), 18:03 (PP)

    Keith Aulie (pictured), Brett Connolly, and Tokarski were your three stars. Aulie popped in his first goal of the season, which was his 6th in 115 career AHL games. He's the secret weapon. Connolly raised himself up to a point a game pace with his second multi-point outing in as many nights.

    These two teams rematch Saturday in Syracuse. The Crunch moved into a one point lead over Norfolk in the division with the W.

    When Panik attacks...

    BNG-5 (OT)

    Riku Helenius allowed 5 goals on 13 shots before leaving at 9:30 of the Second Period for dropping the gloves with opposing netminder Robin Lehner (yes, that happened). Dustin Tokarski was flawless on 14 shots the rest of the way for his second victory of the season.

    First Period
    BNG Hoffman, (1) (Silfverberg, Zibanejad), 7:25 (PP)
    BNG Cannone, (1) (Hoffman, Petersson), 9:18

    Second Period
    BNG Eckford, (2) (Stone, Petersson), 1:35 (PP)
    BNG Grant, (1) (Stone), 2:51
    BNG Borowiecki, (1) (Claesson, Schneider), 6:35
    SYR Conacher, (3) (Johnson), 10:29
    SYR Barberio, (2) (Johnson, Connolly), 12:36 (PP)

    Third Period
    SYR Connolly, (2) (Labrie, Korobov), 6:57
    SYR Palat, (1) (Johnson, Panik), 11:39
    SYR Wyman, (1) (Panik, Barberio), 16:18

    SYR Panik, (1) , 3:44

    Richard Panik (pictured) was the game's first star, assisting on the final two goals in regulation of Syracuse's comeback before bagging the overtime winner. That's how you break out of your early season mini-slump in style.

    Tonight's win has to be considered a super concentrated, extra strength, team-building win. This was a vicious, nasty game that saw the teams rack up a combined 152 penalty minutes and reached the height of mutual contempt in the brawl between Lehner and Helenius at center ice. That, in and of itself, would make the W a sweet one. But, to crawl out of a 5-goal hole to get the 2 points? That's how you ingrain belief in the team concept. On the other end of the rink, Bingo not only blew a 5 goal lead, but they blew a 3 goal lead going into the Third Period, which should be a death sentence for the trailing team in professional hockey. That's going to be a devastating pill for them to swallow psychologically.

    Aside from Panik, multi-point nights abounded for the Crunch, with Tyler Johnson racking up 3 helpers and Mark Barberio and Brett Connolly each getting 1 goal and 1 assist. Newcomer Dmitry Korobov also hit the scoresheet for the first time this season with a helper and was a solid +3 in the win.

    Syracuse ended up outshooting Binghamton 42-27 in the game. The Crunch conclude the weekend tomorrow against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton.

    Season totals: 3 GP, 1-0-1, 0 SO, 3.03 GAA, 77 S / 85 SA (.906 SV%)

    After yesterday's sizable defeat at the hands of the Solar Bears, the Everblades came to Orlando looking to spoil the inaugural home opener for their new in-state and divisional rival. To that end, Florida got on the right path, taking two first period leads, the first when Brandon MacLean found the net with what appeared to be fairly weak wrist-shot that handcuffed John Curry, Orlando's netminder, and when Matt Beca found space on a Florida power play, took a cross-ice feed at the right hash and quickly snapped the puck over a sprawling Curry. Both leads were short-lived, however, as Orlando found a way to make the most of its few chances in the first period. Pat Nagle, who got stronger as the game wore on, was first beat by a mid-range shot that he may not have seen much of but seemed to go through him. Then, with the period winding down, Orlando defenseman Michael Wilson took Solar Bear captain Ryan Cruthers' pass from the bench boards as he jumped into the neutral zone and began what should have been a routine 1-on-1 challenge but, after taking the puck to his backhand and protecting it, beat the Florida defender wide and somehow chipped the puck past Nagle, who looked to be in good position. Orlando took the longest-lasting lead when Solar Bear forward Nick Peterson drew Charles Landry to him as he stopped just inside the Florida blueline, then layed a nice, on-side touch pass to a hard-charging Danis-Pepin who deftly avoided the reaching stick-check of Bobby Raymond and capped the sequence with a heavy, well-placed wrist-shot that beat Nagle's glove just two minutes into the second period. The last scoring action before the shootout came when Beca scored his second of the game during a frantic goalmouth scramble that tied the game at three goals apiece with just a couple minutes into the final frame. The shootout went twelve rounds, with Orlando's Medvec and Hutchings the only two shooters to score on either goalie until Sean Lorenz beat Nagle five-hole and Curry squelched Florida's last hope when he subsequently came to the top of his crease to stop Aaron Bogosian's wrist-shot attempt from in-close and seal the win for the Solar Bears.

    Alex Hutchings didn't register an official point (though he scored in the shootout) but had a good showing tonight, playing effectively at even-strength, the PP and even on the PK in a few instances. Results-wise, he probably deserved better, as he rifled several shots that narrowly missed or were blocked and also sprung Florida forward Corey Trivino for an even-strength breakaway that Curry was able to thwart. Hutchings also showed a lot of moxie, taking plenty of punishment in stride tonight and even managing to dish out a few decent licks of his own. Landry's night, on the other hand, was more of a mixed bag. Despite playing big, mostly uneventful minutes, Landry got sloppy with outlets and in-zone passes on several occasions, the most notable instance when he used the end boards behind his net to blindly bank a pass to his partner which was intercepted by a hustling Solar Bear forward and nearly became a goal.

    Other thoughts and notes: Florida outshot Orlando 35-29 tonight, although at one point, midway through the third, the shots were 30-14 Florida before Orlando generated an impressive late-game surge. Perhaps strong emotions and some extra aggression should have been expected given this was the fourth meeting in just over a week's time between the two clubs; the game was, much to the crowd's delight, very physical for much of the game and, as a result, tempers flared early and often, especially after whistles. Both teams, consequently, combined for 59 penalty minutes. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent, still nursing injuries, sat again. Florida (2-1-1) plays host this Wednesday to South Carolina (2-1-0) as part of a two-game set.

    Alaska Aces 1 @ Utah Grizzlies 0

    F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-0-0, E, 4 SOG, 4 PIM
    Season totals: 4 GP, 0-0-0, -3, 8 PIM

    The previously undefeated Grizzlies held Alaska's trio of NHL forwards (Crabb, Dubinsky and Thompson) scoreless, despite their combined 13 shots on goal, in what turned out to be a goalie duel. Alaska's Mark Guggenberger earned a 23-save shutout but Utah's Andrew Engelage did all he could for the Grizzlies, stopping 38 of 39 shots against. Chris Haltigin scored the lone goal in the contest early in the third period after the puck found its way to him in the high slot as a result of a strong Aces forecheck generated a turnover. With the win tonight, Alaska halted its two-game losing streak. The Aces (2-2-0) will continue their home stand next Friday when the new San Francisco Bulls franchise (2-1-0) comes to Anchorage for a three-game weekend set.

    Season totals: 2 GP, 1-0-0, 0 SO, 3.22 GAA, 49 S / 54 SA (.907 SV%)

    The final score about says it all as the Orlando Solar Bears took the Florida Everblades to the proverbial woodshed this evening in Estero. The game quickly got ugly midway through the first period as Orlando scored four times in a six-minute span, putting Florida in a hole that would be four goals deeper by the end of the second. Ryan Cruthers (2 G) and Matt Sisca (3 A) led the onslaught for the Solar Bears, which outshot the Everblades in each period and 49 to 22 for the game en route to the new franchise's first win this season and in its extremely brief history. Carolina Hurricanes prospect G John Muse, who stopped 20 of 25 shots on the night, started the game for Florida but was finally pulled after Kyle Medvec made it 5-0 Solar Bears roughly seven minutes into the second. Pat Nagle would fare only slightly better in relief. Alex Hutchings (who tallied his first point of the season, an assist on Florida's first goal which came in the final frame) and Charles Landry were in lineup tonight and, on a night where the opponent scored seven even-strength goals, both managed to avoid minus ratings. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent sat due to injuries. It will be interesting to see if and how Florida Head Coach Greg Poss will tinker with the lineup for tomorrow night, when Florida (2-1-0) travels to Orlando (1-1-1) in what will be the Solar Bears inaugural home opener at the Amway Center.

    Alaska (1-2-0) lost it's home opener and second consecutive game, despite putting up 35 shots and only allowing Utah (3-0-0) to get 22 of their own on net. Nate Thompson remains scoreless on the season while Washington Capitals forward Joey Crabb was back in the lineup and registered an assist, his fourth point in two games (2G, 2A so far). Brandon Dubinsky of the Columbus Blue Jackets finally scored his first goal with the Aces. Both teams square off again Saturday night in Anchorage.
