Lightning prospect Pat Nagle stopped all 24 shots he faced to earn his second professional playoff win and first professional playoff shutout while leading the upstart Florida Everblades to a 2-0 win in Game 4 against top-seeded Elmira. Florida leads the series 3-1 and can close out the Jackals at home in Game 5 on Friday. If Elmira wins in Game 5, the next two games are back in New York. If that happens, Florida could possibly get John Muse, the goaltender who started this series for Florida, back. Muse has a lower body injury and despite rumors he’s done for the series and maybe longer, the team is saying he could return soon. In the meantime, the team will ride Nagle, who matched his shutout total from the regular season in one night. (Photo courtesy of swamphockey.com)
