After returning to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the visiting Tulsa Oilers, Lightning defensive prospect Artem Sergeev was out of the lineup for Friday's closing series match with the Oilers. With the domino effect of defensive injuries in Tampa, Sergeev has not been recalled to Syracuse so he *must* be hurt. Goalie Allen York sat backup to Andy Iles who allowed just 2 Oilers shots through, and former Tyler Johnson teammate Mitch Wahl scored points in all four of Florida's goals. After long winning streaks after another in 2014, the Everblades have dropped 4 of their last 10. When you've been playing at an 85% clip, a 60% streak feels a bit worse than it really is. The Everblades finish up their home stand against Gwinnett Saturday night, before hitting the road for a three-in-three next weekend.

Wichita Thunder 2 at Allen Americans 8

F Danick Gauthier, WIC: 0-0-0, -3, 2 PIM, 3 SOG
Season totals (ECHL): 37 GP, 15-18-33, -1, 37 PIM, 116 SOG
Season totals (AHL): 1 GP, 0-0-0, -2, 2 PIM

D Daniel Milan, WIC: Recalled to Syracuse
Season totals: 36 GP, 0-10-10, -6, 82 PIM, 35 SOG

The Central Division leading Allen Americans served noticed on the Thunder, putting up a snowman on the scoreboard Friday night. Lightning defensive prospect Dan Milan, sporting a 3-game point streak, missed his first game of the season with Wichita after getting recalled by Tampa Bay to Syracuse. The Thunder will try to even the weekend series Saturday night in a rematch with the Americans.
