Brayden Irwin's two even-strength goals gave Florida a 2-0 first period lead which Cincinnati cut in half early in the second but Carolina G prospect John Muse, who stopped twenty-seven shots for the game, held the fort in the third period as the Everblades held on to win Friday night. Alex Hutchings returned to the lineup after missing six games. Florida's equipment manager, John Sellars, served as an emergency backup to Muse as Pat Nagle was inactive for the game. Dan Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent, who is still out due to injury, were also out of the lineup. Florida (12-8-5, 29 PTS), now riding a four-game winning streak, travels to face Kalamazoo (11-11-2, 24 PTS) on Saturday.
