Ryan Munce gave up 3 goals against the Everblades Sunday night for the second time in a row, but his offense couldn't bail him out this time. Florida outshot the weary Sea Wolves 46-29 enroute to a 3-1 victory, with Munce stopping 43 of those shots to lose for the first time in 8 games. Munce had beaten the Blades Friday night 4-3 on the first of a three-in-three series with Florida, Texas, and Florida.
Munce also received news Sunday night that he had been snubbed for the ECHL All-Star game scheduled for Wednesday night, January 23 in Stockton, CA. Bloody filthy robbery.
Anton But assisted on St. Peterburg's only goal in a 2-1 overtime loss to Chelyabinsk.
Denis Kazionov was scoreless in Omsk's 4-3 win over Dynamo.
Albert Vishnyakov was scorless as Novokuznetsk was shut out by Spartak 5-0.
Tyrell was the only Cougar to beat Helenius Sunday night, scoring early in the third period. Tyrell extended his point streak to 6 games and Helenius broke a personal 3 game losing streak (0-2-0-1).
