Season totals: 28 GP, 12-8-3, 3.12 GAA, 712 S / 790 SA (.901 SV%), 0 SO

Florida found itself down 4-0 midway through the second period but could not mount any sort of response until the final frame, scoring twice but ultimately surrendering an empty net goal to Gwinnett in what amounted to the team's fourth-consecutive loss (the third-straight in regulation). The home crowd may not have been treated to a win but they did get to witness plenty of fireworks as the on-ice action repeatedly got heated and both teams, which racked up a collective 126 total penalty minutes, seven misconduct calls and four ejections, worked hard to keep the refs busy. The Everblades again lost after managing a sizable advantage (43-24) in shot-margin but proving far less efficient with their scoring chances. Neither team scored a power play goal. Dan Milan, back in the lineup for the first time since last Friday, ended up earning an ejection with just a couple minutes remaining the game for leaving the Everblades bench to join a scrum. Pat Nagle, who stopped all but one of eleven shots on goal after entering the match in relief of Rob Madore, was also ejected in the same sequence after leaving his crease for a confrontation. Alex Hutchings remains with the Lightning's AHL affiliate. Florida (28-20-10, 66 PTS) and Gwinnett (34-23-3, 71 PTS) will square off again Saturday night.

Despite being more than doubled up in shots, Florida dispatched their heavyweight divisional rivals for the third-straight time, this time at home after taking both wins on the road over the weekend, to move within two points of a tie for 1st place. Florida built up a commanding 5-2 lead heading into the final frame on the strength of three power play tallies, including two in the first ten minutes of the contest. Both teams had six opportunities with the man advantage but Gwinnett, to Florida's credit, was only able to convert once. Gwinnett scored a shorthanded goal with nine seconds remaining in regulation to top off a furious third period comeback attempt during which the Gladiators held the Everblades to just two shots while posting fourteen of their own. Florida's captain and leading scorer Mathieu Roy notched a hat trick. Pat Nagle served as backup to Rob Madore for the third-straight game. Alex Hutchings and Charles Landry remain with Syracuse of the AHL. After playing four games over the last five days, Florida (28-17-9, 65 PTS) has a couple days to rest before playing host to Evansville (19-30-5, 43 PTS), which currently brings up the rear of the North Division, on Friday night.
