STM32F4 Advanced Timers question

Hello,
I my application, I need to control multiple ( >3) half bridges and measure current(s) synchronously as well.

Question 1: Is it possible to synchronize the counters of Timer 1 and Timer 8 (and others?) so that match values I load can be based on the same reference?

Question 2:  If the above is not possible, perhaps I could derive the offset between the two timer counters and adjust for it.  Maybe a simultaneous capture from an external event.  Can anyone suggest a more elegant method?

I am experienced with a competitor's PWM (their nicest feature), but do not yet have experience with the STM32's timers - I appreciate any illumination or suggestions you may offer!

Regards,
Dave
