    The Sea Dogs won the shootout, 3-2, to take the extra point. Darcy’s shootout attempt was saved. He’s still struggling to match last year’s production rate.

    Lightning outlast Caps in a track meet.

    WSH-3
    TB-4

    Ben Bishop allowed 3 goals on 38 shots for the victory. You could make a very strong argument he was the difference tonight, slamming the door in the Third Period once the Lightning scored their 4th, and ultimately decisive, goal.

    First Period
    6:06 TB Callahan (4), (Boyle)
    12:59 WSH Johansson (4), (Ovechkin, Kuznetsov)

    Second Period
    2:11 WSH Fehr (1), (Chimera, Carlson)
    9:29 TB Palat (4), (Kucherov, Johnson)
    12:12 TB Kucherov (5), (Brewer, Johnson)
    19:01 WSH Brouwer (3), (Johansson, Backstrom)(PP)

    Third Period
    2:27 TB Garrison (2), (Stamkos)

    Nikita Kucherov, Tyler Johnson, and Bishop were the game's three stars. If you ask me what the biggest difference between Kucherov last year and Kucherov this year is, you might be surprised by my answer. I think where Nikita has excelled is at going to the high traffic areas where goals are created and money is made. Last year I think he was more of a perimeter/rush player, or waiting in the high slot as the third man high. He still does that sometimes, but you look at his goal and his assist tonight: tip deflection driving through the low slot and then a misdirection centering feed from behind the cage. He's going where the rent is expensive but the rewards can be lavish. That's the biggest difference between this year's Kucherov and last year's, in my opinion.

    At the risk of jinxing it, I thought Mark Barberio had a very efficient game tonight filling in for the injured Andrej Sustr. They got a solid 17:30 out of Mark tonight, where they've gotten a Jello-like consistency of play from Sustr this season. With that in mind, I'd leave Barberio in a few more games.

    That Stamkos line needs the Old Yeller treatment, Jon Cooper. Please. It's a mangey old dog with rabies right now. Do what you have to do and move on. Put one of the young kids (Drouin or Namestnikov) up with your superstar, because it's not sustainable in the long run for 91 to flounder like this at even strength.

    Jonathan Drouin was -1 with 1 hit in 10:24. He was on the ice for the Fehr goal, which was a product of Los Matador, Matt Carle. !Ole!

    Vladislav Namestnikov was -1 with 1 hit and 1 blocked shot in 10:34 and also 50% on draws. He was also on the ice for the Fehr goal where Carle waved his bright rouge cape to the delight of the onlooking tourists... from Washington. I'd almost lean toward putting Namestnikov up with Stamkos before Drouin because of the explosive speed/pace he can provide.

    Floodgates.

    SYR-6
    BNG-3

    Kristers Gudlevskis allowed 3 goals on 28 shots for the victory. Goal support: Kristers has it, tonight.

    First Period
    NO SCORING

    Second Period
    SYR Marchessault, (3) (Dotchin, Paquette), 1:38
    SYR Koekkoek, (1) (Blujus, Richard), 9:05 (PP)
    BNG Pageau, (3) (Wideman, Robinson), 10:23
    BNG Puempel, (2) (Dzingel), 12:26

    Third Period
    SYR Kunyk, (2) (Paradis, Gourde), 3:06
    SYR Vermin, (3) , 4:39
    BNG Wideman, (7) (Mullen), 6:48 (PP)
    SYR Smith, (2) (Dotchin), 12:13
    SYR Paquette, (4) (Vermin), 17:05

    Joel Vermin and Cedric Paquette were the game's first and second stars. Defenseman Slater Koekkoek scored his first AHL goal in the contest, as well. And, there was #blujuspalooza happening on that goal, too.

    They really faced down a hot goaltender last night, which happens, and were unfortunate to get shut out, but the scoreboard wasn't indicative of the team's play. They were doing a lot of the right things to snap their offensive funk, and the floodgates finally came open for them tonight. Hopefully they stay open now even if Paquette has to go back to the Lightning with Alex Killorn getting hurt again up top.

    Syracuse gets Norfolk on Friday.

    Adam York was named the game's 1st Star, stopping 27 shots en route to an Everblades victory over the division-leading Solar Bears. 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.

    By Jeremy Houghtaling

    For head coach Rob Zettler, it came down to a couple mental errors early.

    The Crunch allowed a shorthanded goal on their first man-advantage and the Americans tallied a power play goal later in the first period, as Syracuse dropped its third-straight game to Rochester, 3-0, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.

    "Special teams were the difference," Zettler said. "They scored on the power play, we gave up one on our power play. The rest of the game I thought we were all over them."

    Makarov bests old tandem-mate.

    RCH-3
    SYR-0

    Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 3 goals on 25 shots, dropping the decision to Andrey Makarov, who stopped all 38 he faced at the other end.

    First Period
    RCH Armia, (4) (Leduc, Makarov), 2:58 (SH)
    RCH Leduc, (1) (Pysyk, Grigorenko), 19:02 (PP)

    Second Period
    NO SCORING

    Third Period
    RCH Varone, (4) (Adam, Samuels-Thomas), 7:42

    It's rough to get shutout, but I'd say there were silver linings. They settled down after a rough First Period and outshot Rochester 25-11 the rest of the way. That's solid. They just couldn't crack Makarov, who can be impenetrable when he's on his game. Rochester is pretty loaded with high draft picks, too, so it's not like they were playing the sisters of the poor. They just really need to get some continuity and some bounces to go their way, and I think they'll be fine.
