Florida scored four goals on 23 shots and former Carolina fourth rounder Callum Booth stopped all 33 shots he faced as the Everblades moved within one win of advancing to the conference finals with a 4-0 shutout win Thursday. Two of Florida’s goals were on the power play. Orlando outshot Florida 15-6 in the third period, which they entered down 2-0. Florida scored twice in the final period, neither into an empty net.

Florida’s first goal was on a deflection in front, the second was a on a mini-breakaway after a bad giveaway by Bourke and poor defensive effort by Michael Brodzinski, third on a slap shot from above the circles into the top corner, and fourth on a nifty forehand-backhand move on a clear breakaway that was roofed over Ingram.

If not for a diving defensive play by Hults on a 2-on-0 it might have been 5-0.

The Everblades can eliminate the Solar Bears in Orlando Friday. Ingram and company will try to send the series back to Estero.
