AHL Game Night: 3-2-13 Americans at Crunch

All of a sudden, Syracuse is struggling to win close games too.

SYR-1 (OT)

Riku Helenius allowed 2 goals on 26 shots for the overtime loss.

First Period
RCH Mancari, (17) (McCormick, Rissmiller), 10:25 (PP)

Second Period

Third Period
SYR Palat, (11) (Barberio, Gudas), 1:28 (PP)

RCH McNabb, (5) (Mancari, Adam), 4:50 (PP)

Ondrej Palat was the game's second star. Palat has 5 goals and 13 points in his last 8 games. I believe that technically qualifies as "on fire". With Benoit Pouliot possibly hurt in today's game against Boston, I wonder if Palat might be worthy of some consideration for a cup of coffee.

Syracuse finishes their weekend tomorrow against Hershey.

Florida found itself down 4-0 midway through the second period but could not mount any sort of response until the final frame, scoring twice but ultimately surrendering an empty net goal to Gwinnett in what amounted to the team's fourth-consecutive loss (the third-straight in regulation). The home crowd may not have been treated to a win but they did get to witness plenty of fireworks as the on-ice action repeatedly got heated and both teams, which racked up a collective 126 total penalty minutes, seven misconduct calls and four ejections, worked hard to keep the refs busy. The Everblades again lost after managing a sizable advantage (43-24) in shot-margin but proving far less efficient with their scoring chances. Neither team scored a power play goal. Dan Milan, back in the lineup for the first time since last Friday, ended up earning an ejection with just a couple minutes remaining the game for leaving the Everblades bench to join a scrum. Pat Nagle, who stopped all but one of eleven shots on goal after entering the match in relief of Rob Madore, was also ejected in the same sequence after leaving his crease for a confrontation. Alex Hutchings remains with the Lightning's AHL affiliate. Florida (28-20-10, 66 PTS) and Gwinnett (34-23-3, 71 PTS) will square off again Saturday night.
