Season Totals: 20 GP, 11-8-0, 2.97 GAA, .901 sv%, 1 SO

Pat Nagle won his fourth game in a row, stopping 30 of 31 shots Thursday in Greenville for a big Florida win. The Everblades are now tied with Greenville for second in the South Division, five points behind Gwinnett. Statistically, the solid effort Thursday dropped Nagle’s goals against average below 3 and his raised his save percentage over 90%. Reports said Nagle worked with Lightning goaltender coach Franz Jean a couple weeks ago, which helped Nagle's game. Jean meets with Nagle once a month. This was the first game since The ‘Blades (and Nagle) were involved in a line brawl. Florida played without Philip-Michael Devos and Charles Landry, who were recalled recently by AHL Norfolk. Alex Hutchings remains out with an upper-body injury. He hasn’t played since November 12.
