Weekend sweep (roller coaster goes up)!

SYR- 2
BRI-0

Kristers Gudlevskis stopped all 29 shots he faced for his second shutout of the season. He had 5 last season. He also got his save percentage back to .900 with the victory, just a shade below his .901 of a year ago.

First Period
SYR Gourde, (24) (Koekkoek, Kunyk), 9:31 (PP)

Second Period
NO SCORING

Third Period
SYR Courtnall, (5) (Smith, Blujus), 16:25

Yanni Gourde, Gudlevskis, and once (and future?) Bolt Prospect Justin Courtnall were the game's three stars. Yes, quiet acquisition Justin Courtnall, the ex-Lightning pick and son-of-a-Geoff. He's back in our lives. Reunited, and it feels so good.
