Hot off being named the ECHL Goaltender of the Week, Adam York notched his fourth straight win stopping 32 shots en route to a 6-3 road win against the South Carolina Stingrays. On Monday, the Blades re-acquired 2008 New York Islander 2nd round pick Corey Trivino whom had played his first pro season with the club in 2012-13 after finishing his college career with Boston University. The pending acquisition of Trivino is speculated to have been the reason Bolt prospect Danick Gauthier was loaned to Wichita instead of returning to the Blades. In his first game back with Florida, Trivino did not disappoint earning 1st Star honors after potting 2 goals including a penalty shot, running up a +4 rating, and dropping the gloves at the 20:00 mark of the 3rd period. Bolt prospect blueliner Artem Sergeev did not play, and while details are not clear, at least one source indicates that Sergeev was injured sometime during the week. Florida next plays in Gwinnett Saturday night against the Gladiators.

Houghtaling stole my game headline...
Andrei Vasilevskiy allowed 4 goals on 33 shots for the OT loss. His save percentage has dipped just a shade below .900 at .897 as he continues to adapt to North American hockey. He'll get there, Lightning fans. Breath.

Mike Angelidis and J.P. Cote were the game's second and third stars.
Syracuse established themselves in the game with a good First Period, but were outshot 24-14 and outscored 3-1 thereafter. Not good, with Nikita Nesterov wearing the goat horns on Norfolk's OT winner.
The two teams will matchup again tomorrow.
Box score from TheAHL.com.
The Syracuse Crunch had a pair of leads, but let them slip away.
Syracuse went ahead with a goal early in the third period, but the Norfolk Admirals evened the score with a shorthanded goal and scored two minutes into overtime to win, 4-3, at the Onondaga County War Memorial Friday.
"Hockey is pretty simple," said Crunch assistant captain Jean-Philippe Cote. "At this level, if you just tip toe and try to not take a hit to make a play, the other team is going to make you suffer the consequences. That's what happened tonight."
