The Everblades jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the 2nd period, but gave up the next three goals including the OT breakaway game winner to Gladiator forward Brenden Walker. Walker, 22, was the Gladiators' leading goal scorer last season in his first pro season after a prolific WHL scoring career with the Wheat Kings and the Blades. Lightning camper Mike Aviani assisted on Florida's second goal, but it wasn't enough to preserve Florida's five-game winning streak. Fellow camper Allen York sat backup to Carolina Hurricane prospect Daniel Altshuller, and Bolt prospect Artem Sergeev missed his second straight game due to a suspected injury. The Everblades return to Charleston and Duluth again next weekend for a three-in-three road tilt against the South Carolina Stingrays and Gwinnett Gladiators.

Hot off being named the ECHL Goaltender of the Week, Adam York notched his fourth straight win stopping 32 shots en route to a 6-3 road win against the South Carolina Stingrays. On Monday, the Blades re-acquired 2008 New York Islander 2nd round pick Corey Trivino whom had played his first pro season with the club in 2012-13 after finishing his college career with Boston University. The pending acquisition of Trivino is speculated to have been the reason Bolt prospect Danick Gauthier was loaned to Wichita instead of returning to the Blades. In his first game back with Florida, Trivino did not disappoint earning 1st Star honors after potting 2 goals including a penalty shot, running up a +4 rating, and dropping the gloves at the 20:00 mark of the 3rd period. Bolt prospect blueliner Artem Sergeev did not play, and while details are not clear, at least one source indicates that Sergeev was injured sometime during the week. Florida next plays in Gwinnett Saturday night against the Gladiators.

Adam York notched his second 1st Star effort in as many nights by pitching a 24 save shutout in front of a Saturday night home crowd in Estero. York has won 3 straight contests and now sports a filthy 1.95 GAA and asave percentage north of 91%. Those numbers are stellar for the traditionally high-scoring ECHL, and with back-to-back starts on Friday and Saturday, York is looking like the go-to guy in net for the Blades. Bolt prospect Artem Sergeev was on the ice for the final shift for the Blades protecting the two lead, and assisted on the empty netter with 2 seconds left. After 5 straight games against the Solar Bears, the Everblades are 5-1-0-1 and hit the road next weekend to play the Stingrays in South Carolina and the Gladiators in Gwinnett.

Gauthier got the primary assist on the go ahead goal, and then added an insurance goal at 18:29 remaining. Fellow Bolt prospect Dan Milan assisted on the Thunder's opening goal just 50 seconds into the contest. The Thunder travel to Tulsa for a Sunday afternoon tilt against the Oilers.

Lightning camper Mike Aviani, recently returned from a 2-game stint with AHL Charlotte, scored the Blades second goal assisted by Bolt prospect Artem Sergeev. Florida and Orlando resume what seems to be a 40-game opening season series Saturday night in Estero.

In other news, on Monday the AHL transaction wire had Bolt prospect forward Danick Gauthier as being reassigned from AHL Syracuse to ECHL Florida. But on Friday the Wichita Thunder announced that the Tampa Bay Lightning reassigned Gauthier from Syracuse to the Thunder, joining fellow Bolt prospect blueliner Dan Milan. The Thunder host the Missouri Mavericks Saturday night before traveling to Tulsa to take on the Oilers Sunday afternoon.

Adam York stopped 26 goals as the Everblades mounted a spirited third period comeback to force overtime before Florida forward Adam Brace notched the short-handed OT GW'er. It was York's first win of the season. Artem Sergeev now has a point streak after Evan Bloodoff picked up a rebound from Sergeev's shot and buried the game-tying goal in the third. Kristoff Kontos, son of former Bolt Chris Kontos, opened the scoring for Orlando in the second period. Kontos, 20, is playing in his first professional season after signing a contract with the Solar Bears earlier this month. He was born 14 months after his father was forever etched in Lightning lore by scoring 4 goals in the Bolt's first ever NHL game as a franchise on Oct 7, 1992. It says quite a bit about a hockey organization that failed to mention that Kristoff's father even played for the NHL team just 1.5 hours down the interstate in the press release about signing Kontos, choosing instead to highlight his playing time with the LA Kings and Wayne Gretzy. Draw your own conclusions.

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.

AHL Game Night: 3-26-14 IceCaps at Crunch

Comeback Crunch start a positive streak for a change.

STJ-2
SYR-3

Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 28 shots for the victory. Since returning from the Olympics, Gudlevskis is 4-2-1 with 1 SO, a 1.97 GAA, and a .934 save percentage. Suffice it to say he's really taken off since that amazing performance against Canada in Sochi.

First Period
STJ Albert, (20) (MacKinnon), 4:14
STJ Chiarot, (5) (Gordon, Samson), 16:23

Second Period
SYR Connolly, (18) (Smith, Angelidis), 0:32

Third Period
SYR Angelidis, (11) (Paquette, Namestnikov), 2:43 (PP)
SYR Sergeev, (3) (Namestnikov), 17:28 (SH)

Artem Sergeev, Vladislav Namestnikov, and Mike Angelidis were the game's three stars. Now at 42 points in 46 games, Namestnikov has doubled his point production from a season ago when he had 21 points in 44 games. As with Gudlevskis' numbers, his continued production is impressive given how the rest of the roster has obviously labored a bit this season.

This was a far more impressive result than the 3-0 shutout of Adirondack given the IceCaps reside in 4th in the Eastern Conference at 20 games over .500 for the season. This is a result that gives you far more hope that this winning streak can actually be sustained.

Sergeev Thrives With Increased Ice Time


By Jeremy Houghtaling

Artem Sergeev saw his opportunity and responded.

With three significant injuries to the Crunch blueline, Sergeev has thrived with increased ice time. The 20-year-old rookie defenseman has averaged close to 20 minutes a night and played in all situations, as Syracuse has gone 4-2 to snap out of a recent slide.

For Syracuse Crunch coach Rob Zettler, Sergeev has elevated his play in the last few weeks.

"I've really liked his physical play," Zettler said. "He's been smart. He uses his body well. He's a big, thick guy and he's strong. He's starting to understand how he can best use it to his advantage, and he's done that lately."
