Lightning camper Mike Aviani scored Florida's 2nd goal and assisted on the third, while Lightning defensive prospect Artem Sergeev assisted on the Everblade's 4th goal. Following the game, Sergeev was recalled to Syracuse. With Allen York likely recalled to Syracuse for the remainder of the season, Everblade goalie Andy Iles was in net for all six Jackal goals.

The Everblades rallied for three goals in the 3rd period to snatch victory from the Stingrays. Artem Sergeev dropped the mits in the 1st period in a rare fighting major. Not sure if there's a goaltending controversy brewing in Flordia or if it's just head coach Greg Poss managing three goalies, but Allen York didn't even dress in Sunday's game against South Carolina. The Everblades return to Estero for a three game homestand against the Stingrays and Greenville.

The Everblades allowed a 3-2 lead early in the 3rd period to evaporate into a 4-3 OT road loss Saturday night. Lightning defensive prospect Artem Sergeev scored an unassisted marker just shy of 7 minutes into the 3rd period to give Florida the go ahead goal. But Casey Pierro-Zabotel tied the game for Gwinnett with less than 2 minutes left in regulation. Mitch Wahl took a boarding penalty just 37 seconds into OT, and Pierro-Zabotel struck again for the OT power-play game-winner. Jeff Costello has missed both games on this road trip, with the 3-in-3 finishing up Sunday in Charleston against the Stingrays.
