Wichita Thunder 5 at Tulsa Oilers 6 OT

D Daniel Milan, WIC: 0-1-1, -1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 2 GP, 0-1-1, -3, 0 PIM, 4 SOG

Fans in Tulsa were treated to four netminders in this 11-goal OT lamplighter. Milan was credited with a secondary assist on Wichita's third goal for his first point of the young season, seeing time on both the power play and the penalty kill.

Florida Everblades 3 at Orlando Solar Bears 2 OT

D Artem Sergeev, FLA: 0-1-1, +1, 0 PIM, 2 SOG
Season totals: 4 GP, 1-1-2, E, 0 PIM, 7 SOG

Other Notables
G Allen York, FLA, W, 62:30 MIN, 2 GA, 26 SH, 24 SV
Season totals: 3 GP, 1-1-0-1, 2.56 GAA, 0.881 SV%

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.
