Florida went 0-for-7 on the power play but overcame a 4-1 deficit in the third period to send the game to overtime where, in the shootout, Matt Marquardt ensured the comeback victory by beating Wheeling's Patrick Killeen. Shugg, who also scored in the shootout, provided the night's heroics by capping off his hat-trick with the game-tying goal which came with just over a half-minute to play in regulation. Bobby Raymond had the other Everblades goal. Pat Nagle again sat in favor of John Muse while Charles Landry was out the lineup, as was Alex Hutchings, who missed his fifth-straight game, and Maxime Langelier-Parent, who remains inactive due to injury.

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-0-0, -1, 3 SOG, 7 PIM (cross-checking, fighting)
Season totals: 22 GP, 7-13-20, +4, 23 PIM

Alaska came charging out of the gate, potting four goals in the first period and held a commanding 7-3 lead by the end on the second that would hold up through the final frame as the scoring finally slowed. Nick Mazzolini (3 G, 2 A) led the way for the Aces, who have now won won two of the first three matches in a four-game series. Nate Thompson didn't factor into the scoring in such a goal-filled contest but he dropped the gloves for the first time this season, going toe-to-toe with Utah's Riley Armstrong, a 5'11", 200 pound winger, during a chippy second period of action. Mark Guggenberger, finally in net again as Gerald Coleman had started the previous six games, stopped seventeen shots to earn the win for the Aces. Alaska (18-6-0, 36 PTS) and Utah (9-10-2, 20 PTS) conclude their four-game set on Monday night.

Justin Shugg scored twice as Florida jumped out to a three-goal first period lead that Wheeling, aided by five opportunities with the man advantage over the course of the final two frames, eventually erased, with the goalie off for the extra attacker, in the last minute of regulation. Neither team scored in the extra session so the game went to a shootout where Brayden Irwin scored the lone goal secure a victory for the Everblades. Florida received an excellent performance from John Muse, who got the start in net, as the Nailers outshot the Everblades 44-17 for the match. The disparity was particularly acute over the final two periods where Wheeling held a 31-8 shot advantage. Alex Hutchings missed his fourth-straight game and Maxime Langelier-Parent remains inactive due to injury. Florida (9-8-5, 23 PTS) will do battle against Wheeling (6-8-4, 16 PTS), again on Saturday night.

Florida fell behind 3-1 in the second period but only managed to trade goals before falling in regulation to Reading. Pat Nagle didn't have a banner evening but was, on at least two goals (the second and fourth allowed), partially victimized by circumstance. Dan Milan, scratched last game, and Charles Landry, returned from Syracuse, were back in the lineup for the Everblades. Alex Hutchings remained out for the third-straight game and Maxime Langelier-Parent is still inactive due to injury.

In his second game of ECHL action, Ryan O'Byrne added his second and third points with a goal and an assist to help Florida, which fell behind after taking the initial lead, defeat its divisional rival Saturday night. With Alex Hutchings out of the lineup for the second-consecutive game, Dan Milan scratched for the first time since returning from injury, Charles Landry currently up with Syracuse and Maxime Langelier-Parent still inactive due to injury, Pat Nagle was the only Lightning prospect to see any action. Nagle turned in a solid night's work for the home squad, especially considering he saw a bit more work than his counterpart, Nathan Lieuwen, as the Everblades were outshot 31-19 by the Road Warriors. Nagle was rewarded, though, thanks to the opportunistic and efficient play of his teammates. Having concluded its two-game pit stop, Florida (8-7-5, 21 PTS) begins a two-week, seven-game road trip Wednesday night against Reading (13-7-1, 27 PTS), which currently sits atop the Atlantic division and has won eight of its last ten games.

Nate Thompson, back in the lineup after missing his first game of the season the night before, had a goal and assist as Alaska, which has won nine of its last ten games, overcame a two-goal deficit to win the battle between the two Western Conference division leaders and pushed its win streak to five games. Former Lightning goaltender Gerald Coleman made his fourth-consecutive start, all of which he has won. With his contributions, Thompson, whose goal came on a rebound from one of his own shots, returned to the point-per-game pace he achieved a few games ago and is now riding a four game scoring streak during which he has put up eight points (3 G, 5 A). Fellow locked-out NHLer Brandon Dubinsky remains out due to injury. Alaska (16-5-0, 32 PTS), currently the top team in the league standings, now heads home to await Utah (8-8-2, 18 PTS) as both teams will begin a six-game series spanning eleven days on Wednesday.

Locked-out NHLer Ryan O'Byrne, whose signing Florida announced his signing earlier in the day, hit the scoresheet with an assist in his first game of the season but, despite the boost to the blueline, Florida squandered a two-goal lead late in the third period before going on to lose in the shootout. The Everblades had a mixed night on special teams, scoring on three of five power play opportunities while allowing both a short-handed goal against and the Road Warriors to score on one of their three sequences with the man advantage. Greenville's Sebastian Piche, who won the Kelly Cup with the Everblades last season after joining the Lightning organization as part of the trade deadline deal that sent Kyle Quincey, acquired from Colorado in exchange for Steve Downie, to Detroit, had two apples, one of which was the primary dish on the game-tying goal by Andrew Yogan. Alex Hutchings was out of the lineup for the first time since the season opener, so with Pat Nagle sitting in favor of John Muse and Charles Landry currently up with Syracuse, Dan Milan was the lone Lightning prospect who saw any action. Maxime Langelier-Parent, who has an AHL contract, inactive due to injury. Florida (7-7-5, 19 PTS) and Greenville will do battle again (13-6-1, 27 PTS) Saturday night.

Matt Forney (2 G, 1 A) and Chad Costello (1 G, 1 A) helped propel Colorado past Florida Saturday and clinch the three-game weekend set between the two clubs. After falling behind 2-0, the Everblades got on the board when Eagles defenseman Riley Nelson misplayed the puck in his own end, sending the puck towards, underneath G Adam Brown and into Colorado's goal. Brayden Irwin was credited with the lone Florida goal. Hutchings, who has had a November to remember with 12 points (8 G, 4 A) in 8 games, and put up three goals and an assist against Colorado in the first two games of the weekend series, was held scoreless. Charles Landry was called up to Syracuse before the match. Florida (7-7-4, 18 PTS) now returns home to rest up for Friday's tilt against division-rival Greenville (12-6-1, 25 PTS).

Florida, which rallied from an early two-goal deficit and held a 5-2 lead until midway through the game, gave one of the league powerhouses all it wanted in an entertaining game it ended up losing in dramatic fashion by allowing Gwinnett to score five times over a ten-minute stretch spanning the late second and early third periods. Special teams play was every bit the difference-maker as the Gladiators power play unit proved nearly perfect, scoring four of the five times they held the man advantage. The Gladiators outshot the Everblades 40-30 for the game. Nagle's numbers were ugly and there's the old adage that a goalie needs to be a team's best penalty-killer but the team defense in front of him bears some scrutiny as well. Hutchings, who scored for the third straight game to earn his sixth point (5 G, 1 A) during that span, brought the Everblades within a goal with about a minute and a half remaining in the game. Landry also scored, notching his first goal of the season early in the second that, at the time, capped off a five-goal Everblades run. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. Florida (5-4-2) now has time to lick its wounds before hitting the road to face Greenville (9-4-1) next Thursday in another tough divisional showdown.

Florida took an early one-goal lead Friday night but Greenville clawed back in the second period before surging ahead with just minutes remaining in the game. Brendan MacLean scored the lone Florida goal by tapping in a rebound created by a Matt Marquardt shot off the rush. It was two vets, Kendall McArdle, a former Everblade and NHLer, and Brendan Connolly, who helped lead the way for Greenville; McArdle had a goal and an assist and Connolly had the game-winner. Florida, which outshot Greenville 32-27, had its fair share of chances but could not solve Buffalo Sabres prospect Nathan Lieuwen. Pat Nagle played well also for the bulk of the game but could not come up with the big save when Greenville's Connolly came bearing in on him after an Everblades turnover in the waning minutes of regulation and beat Nagle glove-side. Hutchings saw his three-game scoring streak come to an end. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive.

Alaska outshot Stockton 32-27 for the game. It was an ugly night for Alaska's Mark Guggenberger, who allowed five goals on eighteen shots before getting the hook late in the second forcing newly-signed netminder Brooks Ostergard, who stopped seven of nine shots, into action. Brandon Dubinsky, named the ECHL's Player of the Week on Wednesday, scored twice on four shots to give him his third consecutive multipoint game. Fellow locked-out NHLers Nate Thompson and Joey Crabb were quiet for the Aces, though Thompson did manage a neutral plus-minus on a night his team allowed five even-strength goals.

Aaron Bogosian, Matt Marquardt, Matthieu Roy, Justin Shugg, Brody Sutter and Corey Trivino all scored for the Everblades. Lightning prospects Alex Hutchings (pictured, courtesy of SwampHockey), Charles Landry and Pat Nagle were all in action for Florida while Daniel Milan was scratched yet again due to injury.
