I'm sure there's a country song in here somewhere, but Tulsa just keeps breaking Wichita's heart.

The Thunder play the Quad City Mallards Wednesday night for the first time this season before a three-in-three next weekend against Missouri, Allen, and Tulsa.

In a back-to-back set against Gwinett in Estero Friday and Saturday nights, the Everblades emerged with a perfect 4 points and keeping a lock on the lead in the East Division. On Friday night, the Blades rallied to scored three 3rd period goals with Jeff Costello scoring the equalizer early in the period to spur the comeback. Costello also fought Anthony Perdicaro in the 2nd and Mike Aviani instigated fisticuffs with James McEwan. Allen York turned away 26 shots for the win.

On Saturday night, Allen York got the nod in nets again and pitched a 21-shot 2-0 shutout, earning First Star honors. It was York's 2nd shutout of the season, and his 8th victory. Jeff Costello did not play. Florida next plays a back-to-back in Wheeling next weekend.

After falling behind 3-0, the Thunder once again mount a spirited comeback scoring the next three and forcing overtime. Unfortunately, hanging 49 shots on the Tulsa goalie wasn't enough to avoid the shootout loss. Lightning prospects Danick Gauthier and Daniel Milan both notched assists, with Gauthier's coming on the power play. Gauthier was one of four Thunder shooters that failed to convert in the skill contest to decide the outcome. Wichita hosts the Mavericks from Missouri Saturday night before traveling back to Tulsa for a rematch against these Oilers.

A night after being scratched, Lightning camper Mike Aviani pots Florida's 3rd goal of the 1st period in Sunday afternoon's road game victory over the Gwinnett Gladiators. Jeff Costello assisted on Aviani's goal, the night after scoring his first professional goal. Allen York was rather pedestrian in net, allowing 3 goals on 22 shots, but when your offense puts a touchdown up on the scoreboard you don't have to be stellar to get the win. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev was whistled 55 seconds into the game for his first penalty of the season. Both teams had their power play clicking at 50%, but the high octane Everblade offense overwhelmed the Gladiators amid a 40 shot barrage. Florida captured all six points on the weekend three-in-three road trip, and the Everblades return to Estero 1st on the table in the East Division and 2nd in the conference behind Fort Wayne. Gwinnett makes the 9-hour trip down I-75 from Duluth to Estero for a back-to-back rematch against the Everblades next Friday and Saturday night.

Wichita earned a much needed victory Sunday afternoon against the visiting Missouri Mavericks, and once again Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier was in the thick of the scoring. Gauthier was credited with the primary assists on both of the Thunder's first and third goals, with that 3rd goal being a crucial power play insurance marker with just 85 seconds left in the game. Gauthier finishes the 4-game week with a gaudy stat line of 2-4-5 with 20 shots and a +3 rating. The Thunder next plays Tuesday night in Tulsa against the Oilers.
