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. 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.

Alaska Aces 4 @ Ontario Reign 3 (OT)

F Nate Thompson, AK: 1-1-2, E, 3 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 20 GP, 7-13-20, +6, 16 PIM

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.

F Nate Thompson, AK: 2-1-3, +3, 4 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 19 GP, 6-12-18, +6, 16 PIM

Thompson scored his first goal just fifteen seconds into the match before padding the Aces lead to 6-1 with just a few minutes remaining in regulation. Coleman, who has won both starts he has made for the Aces, is currently sporting a 1.50 GAA and .946 SV%.

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.
