W Danick Gauthier, FLA: 0-0-0, E, 0 PIM, 1 SOG

C Mike Aviani (ECHL Contract), FLA: On loan to Charlotte (AHL)

Everblade netminder Allen York and his Stingray counterpart Adam Morrison put on a goalie clinic Saturday night as each allowed just one goal each in regulation and overtime before going 8 rounds deep in the shootout before York surrendered the game winner. York stopped 17 shots in his season debut, but took the tough luck shootout loss. The Blades picked up 3 of 4 points in their opening two-game weekend series with South Carolina, and play their next 5 games against Orlando starting with a three-in-three on October 24 in Estero.

Gauthier Making Most of Opportunity With Crunch


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Danick Gauthier's expected stay with the Syracuse Crunch was one game.

Sent down to the ECHL Florida Everblades at the beginning of the season to find his confidence and improve his work ethic, the 6-2 forward was brought back earlier this month to temporarily fill a space in the lineup.

"He showed up and he played well," said Crunch coach Rob Zettler. "We thought we'd give him another chance and he continues to play well."

Gauthier has made the most of his latest opportunity. The 22-year-old registered three points in his first four games with Syracuse, and has earned a shot on the Crunch's top line alongside Nikita Kucherov and Vladislav Namestnikov.

The Lightning organization goes as deep as the ECHL.

SYR-4
WBS-3 (SO)

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 26 shots (including a rare OT penalty shot) before stopping all 4 he faced in the penalty shot session for the shootout win. Since coming up from the Everblades for an injured Riku Helenius, Gudlevskis has put up a very respectable 3-0-0 record with 1 shutout, a 2.21 GAA, and a .914 sv%.

Nikita Kucherov and Danick Gauthier were the game's first and third stars. Gauthier always amazes me with his ability to chip in despite always seemingly being on the fringe between the ECHL and AHL. This was Danick's second game up from the Coast and, as usual, he found a way to contribute. Depth is a wonderful thing.

Syracuse heads back to familiar territory Friday and Saturday to play Norfolk.

Florida rode a three-goal lead it reestablished midway through the middle period, adding an empty-netter in the final minute to close out Las Vegas and extend its unbeaten streak to six games. With Kristers Gudlevksis still up with AHL Syracuse, the Everblades turned to Jesse Deckert, who stopped 22 of 25 Wranglers shots, to tend net for the fourth-straight game. Danick Gauthier, currently tied for the fourth-highest point total on the team, added a primary helper on a power play tally by Matt Pistilli, the team's and league's current top scorer, in the second period. Charles Landry had the night off while Dan Milan was inserted into the lineup for just the second time this season. Florida (6-0-0, 12 PTS) now heads home to await division rival Orlando (2-3-0, 4 PTS), whom it will square off against on Friday.

For the second time in three nights, Florida took and beat Ontario beyond regulation time, this time after Matthew Pistilli notched his second goal of the match early in overtime to push the visiting squad's season-opening win streak to five games. Sunday's victory came despite the Everblades squandered a three-goal lead it had built up nearly midway through the middle-frame. Jesse Deckert stopped 23 of 27 Reign shots to earn his third-consecutive win in the absence of Kristers Gudlevskis, who remains at present with AHL Syracuse. Fresh off picking up a helper the night before, 6'4", 225 pound Carl Nielsen engaged in his first fight of the season early in the match. Danick Gauthier, who managed to stay out of the sin bin for the first time this season, and Charles Landry barely registered on the stat sheet. Maxime Langelier-Parent was still inactive. Sitting atop the South Division perch, Florida (5-0-0, 10 PTS) finishes its current road trip Wednesday against Las Vegas (2-3-0, 4 PTS).
