Florida, which entered the final period of play trailing by a goal, scored three goals -- a game-tying tally early in the period, a late lead-taker and an empty-netter -- to polish off host Fort Wayne in the first of a two-game set. Kristers Gudlevskis saw a bit more action than he had in several preceding matches but delivered yet another sound performance between the pipes for the Everblades, earning the game's first star award. Gudlevskis narrowly out-dueled his counterpart, Andrey Makarov, a former teammate of Tampa Bay's 2012 1st-rounder, netminder Andrey Vasilevskiy. Danick Gauthier, Maxime Langelier-Parent, Charles Landry and Carl Neilsen missed the game being still on assignment with AHL Syracuse. Dan Milan was out of the lineup yet again. Florida (13-4-2, 28 PTS) will play Fort Wayne again (6-6-3, 15 PTS) on Saturday before returning home for a brief spell.
