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.

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.

Alex Hutchings remained out for the third-straight game and Maxime Langelier-Parent is still inactive due to injury. Florida (8-8-5, 21 PTS) continues its road trip against Wheeling (6-8-3, 15 PTS), which is at the bottom of the Atlantic division standings, on Friday.

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.

Season totals: 20 GP, 7-13-20, +6, 16 PIM

Former Lightning goaltender Gerald Coleman made his fourth-consecutive start, all of which he has won.

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.
