Florida built a two-goal lead heading into the third period before outscoring Kalamazoo 2-1 in the final frame to take the opener of its present three-game road trip. Kristers Gudlevskis won his second-consecutive start but allowing two goals meant his sterling 1.68 goals-against average (tops in the league) and his .928 save percentage (eighth-best) actually declined, albeit only by a very small margin. Maxime Langelier-Parent joined Danick Gauthier, Charles Landry and Carl Neilsen with AHL Syracuse. Dan Milan remained a scratch. Florida (12-4-2, 26 PTS) now has a Turkey Day battle against Fort Wayne (6-5-3, 15 PTS) on the docket.
