    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    Jon DiSalvatore's objective was to just jab the puck toward the net.

    With nearly two minutes gone in overtime, the Syracuse Crunch forward took a whack at a loose puck a few feet from the net. In a stroke of luck, the puck went off a Hershey Bears defenseman, fluttered up over the goalie, kissed the crossbar and fell just over the goal line to give the Crunch a 3-2 win at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "I'll take it," DiSalvatore said with a grin.

    Syracuse unleashes the secret weapon.

    HER-2
    SYR-3 (OT)

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 2 goals on 33 shots for the victory. The Latvian rookie is now 4 games over .500 for the season and has inched his save percentage up to .901 for the campaign.

    First Period
    HER Brown, (15) (Newbury, Byers), 9:50 (PP)
    SYR Landry, (1) (Paradis, Gourde), 14:04

    Second Period
    SYR Smith, (5) (Rankin, Langelier-Parent), 2:48

    Third Period
    HER Watkins, (10) (Kolomatis, Byers), 9:13

    Overtime
    SYR DiSalvatore, (10) (Connolly), 1:50

    Jon DiSalvatore and Gudlevskis were the game's first and second stars. But, who cares about that? After nearly 3 seasons in the organization, finally Charles Landry was let loose upon the league. Tonight the young defenseman finally scored his first ever AHL goal. Congratulations.

    Also, as advertised, new signee Yanni Gourde had a helper in his Syracuse debut, keeping the forward at his point a game pace for the season.

    Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
    (1)Magnitogorsk 4 vs. (8)Vladivostok 3 (OT)
    Magnitogorsk Wins the Series 4-1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 37/40, 2.85 GAA, .925 sv%
    Regular season totals: 51 GP, 30-12-8, 9 SO, 1.88 GAA, .940 sv%
    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 4-1-0, 0 SO, 2.03 GAA, .927 sv%

    Ex-Blue Jackets draft pick Sergei Mozyakin scored 3:15 into Overtime to deliver Magnitogorsk a 4-3 Game Five victory and eliminate expansion Vladivostok for the KHL playoffs. Mozyakin's goal punctuated the 3 assists he posted in regulation.

    (4)Ufa 4 vs. (5)Novgorod 2
    Ufa Leads the Series 3-2
    Andrey Vasilevskiy, Ufa, Win, 27/29, 2.00 GAA, .931 sv%

    Playoff totals: 5 GP, 3-2-0, 0 SO, 1.54 GAA, .947 sv%

    Remember when Ufa was down 2-0 in the series and it took an amazing pad save in Double Overtime of Game Three by Lightning prospect Andrey Vasilevskiy on Novgorod's Jarkko Immonen just to keep them from the brink of elimination? That save may well have been the turning point of the opening round series, as Ufa has screamed back to a 3-2 series lead on the strength of their 4-2 Game Five win today. Center Denis Khlystov had 3 assists in the win for Ufa while Novgorod's Sakari Salminen had 1 goal and 1 assist for Novgorod in defeat.

    Lightning sweep up the trash.

    FLA-4
    TB-5

    Ben Bishop allowed 4 goals on 27 shots for the win. He was very off positionally tonight, including a wickedly bad short side softie, but goal support is a beautiful thing.

    First Period
    1:44 FLA Fleischmann (7), (Kulikov, Bjugstad)(PP)
    5:38 TB Salo (3), (Filppula)
    5:50 FLA Howden (1), (Hayes, Pirri)
    8:18 TB Kostka (3), (Purcell)

    Second Period
    12:04 TB Callahan (12), (Palat, Filppula)
    18:53 TB Johnson (21), (Stamkos)

    Third Period
    10:47 TB Stamkos (15), (Filppula, Hedman)(PP)
    18:55 FLA Upshall (12), (Bjugstad, Boyes)
    19:33 FLA Pirri (8), (Petrovic, Campbell)

    Valtteri Filppula, Steven Stamkos, and Ryan Callahan were the game's three stars.

    This win wasn't the elixir. Florida is terrible and you still saw some concerning signs including bad penalty killing, subpar goaltending from Bishop, and late game lapses while the team was trying to close out a win. So, if you're a glass-half-empty person, there's plenty to complain about. On the other hand, Callahan got his first Lightning goal, Stamkos got his first points since coming back from the broken leg, and the Lightning finally got a W, if you're a glass-half-full person. I'd say the game was a building block, and if they work on correcting the problematic things they will be ok moving forward. The effort has been very good the past few games and they finally got the positive feedback tonight.

    10 hits for Radko Gudas in his return from injury. Double digits. Clearly, the trainer's table puts him in a foul mood. Everyone else on the team only had 8 hits combined.

    Mike Kostka had a goal and was +1 with 4 shots and 1 blocked shot in 15:44. Is he perfect defensively? No. But he's given the Lightning the offensive dynamism in the tradeoff you want from an offensive defenseman. So much so, in fact, that he's temporarily supplanted Barberio on the depth chart.

    Nikita Kucherov was -2 in 10:09 as he graduates from prospect status on the website with a whimper. With the other new lines Cooper put together playing pretty well, the one casualty was the 4th line with Brown and Kucherov, which saw the ice very little.

    Eastern Conference Quarterfinals
    Vladivostok 2 vs. Magnitogorsk 3 (3OT)
    Magnitogorsk Leads the Series 3-1
    Vasily Koshechkin, Magnitogorsk, Win, 40/42, 1.03 GAA, .952 sv%
    Regular season totals: 51 GP, 30-12-8, 9 SO, 1.88 GAA, .940 sv%
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 3-1-0, 0 SO, 1.87 GAA, .927 sv%

    Longtime KHL star Danis Zaripov scored 16:35 into Triple Overtime to deliver Magnitogorsk a Game Four, 3-2 win over Vladivostok. Metallurg now has a commanding 3-1 lead in the series. Ex-Lightning defenseman Mike Commodore had a goal in defeat for Vladivostok. Vasily Koshechkin turned away 40 for the win.

    Nadezhda Cup
    Novgorod 2 vs. Ufa 4
    Series Tied 2-2
    Andrey Vasilevskiy, Ufa, Win, 39/41, 2.00 GAA, .951 sv%
    Regular season totals: 28 GP, 14-8-5, 3 SO, 2.21 GAA, .923 sv%
    Playoff totals: 4 GP, 2-2-0, 0 SO, 1.44 GAA, .950 sv%

    Novgorod may live to regret their Game Three Triple Overtime loss to Ufa, as momentum in the series now wears a green jersey as Ufa won Game Four 4-2 to even the series at 2 a piece. Andrey Vasilevskiy turned in another sterling performance in the win, turning aside 39 shots, allowing his club to overcome a lopsided 41-20 shot disadvantage. Ex-NHLer Ivan Vishnevsky had a goal for Ufa in the win.

    Quebec Major Junior Hockey League

    Halifax Mooseheads 3 @ Charlottetown Islanders 2 (OT)

    Playoff totals: 3 GP, 1-2-0, 0 SO, 1.30 GAA, .949 sv%

    Andrey Vasilevskiy and Ufa outlasted Novgorod 2-1 in a 113:24 thriller to draw their first win of their opening round series against Novgorod. The young netminder turned aside 52 shots for the win. Ex-Senators second rounder Igor Mirnov had Ufa's first goal while Russian league veteran Alexander Stepanov drew potted the winning goal. Vasilevskiy has played well in his rookie campaign as a KHL playoff starter, allowing just 5 goals in 3 games.

    Lightning won't be able to nickel and dime their way into the playoffs.

    PHX-4
    TB-3 (SO)

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 20 shots before surrendering goals to 1 of 2 shooters for the SO loss. Hedman absolutely hung him out to dry with a bad pass off the end boards that ricocheted out in front on an innocuous play for an easy Erat tap in, and that ended up making a big difference in the game.

    First Period
    11:26 TB Johnson (20), (Palat, Brewer)(SH)

    Second Period
    1:01 PHX McMillan (2), (Yandle, Doan)
    19:07 TB Palat (16), (Callahan, Aulie)

    Third Period
    2:13 PHX Erat (2), (unassisted)
    7:48 PHX Boedker (16), (Vermette, Michalek)
    19:22 TB Palat (17), (Filppula, Carle)

    Overtime
    NO SCORING

    Shootout
    PHX- Vrbata
    TB- NONE

    Ondrej Palat and Ryan Callahan were the game's first and second stars. Their line (along with Filppula) and the Pyatt line were good tonight. It's just a shame that Palat, Filppula, and Callahan came up dry in the shootout.

    With all that said, 25 minutes of hockey isn't good enough. The team played a very good First Period, sleepwalked through the Second and most of the Third, and only woke up once they fell behind 3-2. They salvaged a point, but that wasn't good enough. With the spot they are in, they need 2's, not 1's. Period. Urgency needs to be there right now, and it hasn't always been on display.

    Mike Kostka had 2 shots, 1 hit, and 1 blocked shot in 19:13 of service with Gudas out and Salo leaving the game in the First Period. He nearly set up Palat for a OT GWG and a hat trick with a point shot that left a nice rebound. Good decision-making on that play.
