BoltProspects: Alas, it's time to bid adieu. I, @mikegallimore, am turning the account back over to its regular attendant (Chad). As always, was fun.
BoltProspects: @Thunderbolt91 Just one game so far but looks that way, yes. Though Wilson scored a beauty for Norfolk tonight.
BoltProspects: Brown and Connolly, who skated together, also kept busy. 9 shots between them.
BoltProspects: Not reflected on the statsheet but, as mentioned a couple times during the game, the line of Wyman-Sexton-Panik was superb tonight.
BoltProspects: Namestnikov also finished his evening with 6 shots on net. Strong effort from TB's 2011 first-rounder.
BoltProspects: Namestnikov, who scored the game's first goal, also had an assist on Nightingale's, making for his first multipoint night this season.
BoltProspects: Good to see the #SyrCrunch, despite missing so much firepower, regroup after being dominated in the 2nd, then falling behind 3-1 in the 3rd.
BoltProspects: Kudos as well to Eric Neilson and Pierre-Luc Letourneau Leblond for a spirited round of fisticuffs.
BoltProspects: Bobkov was under siege for most of the 1st and 3rd periods and had to make a couple key stops in OT before stopping all shootout attempts.
BoltProspects: Seriously, though, tip of the hat to Igor Bobkov, who made 38 saves on 41 shots through 65:00 of action on behalf of Norfolk.
BoltProspects: The Crunch failed to score a shootout goal. Desjardins was beat once.
BoltProspects: Syracuse falls in the shootout.
BoltProspects: Headed to the skills competition.
BoltProspects: Now in OT, Taormina with a nifty move to dance around a defender and unleash a wrister that Bobkov gobbles up.
BoltProspects: Leading up to the goal though, the Crunch had, in effect, an ongoing shooting gallery. Bobkov, who's been great tonight, did all he could.
BoltProspects: Angelidis credited with the game-tying goal. Somehow managed to bring the puck into a crowded crease and jam it in from the side of the net.
BoltProspects: SYRACUSE CRUNCH GOAL WITH 19.4 SECONDS LEFT.
BoltProspects: Crunch putting the heat on with time winding down.
BoltProspects: @captkirk42 He's down there for the full season, yes. It's not hurting Tampa, though.
