Matt Forney (2 G, 1 A) and Chad Costello (1 G, 1 A) helped propel Colorado past Florida Saturday and clinch the three-game weekend set between the two clubs. After falling behind 2-0, the Everblades got on the board when Eagles defenseman Riley Nelson misplayed the puck in his own end, sending the puck towards, underneath G Adam Brown and into Colorado's goal. Brayden Irwin was credited with the lone Florida goal.

Alaska won its second overtime game of the season after Nick Mazzolini scored in the final minute to force the extra session and Zach Harrison fired the game-winner from the slot before the game could be decided by shootout. Thompson had two primary helpers, the first on a first period tally by Sean Curry and the second after helping get the puck to the net where Mazzolini would find and bury it during the ensuing goalmouth scramble. Brandon Dubinsky remains out due to injury. Next up on the docket for Alaska (13-5-0, 26 PTS) is a showdown with Stockton (11-3-1, 23 PTS), the other division leader in the Western conference, on Wednesday.
