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.

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.

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

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.
