Life, at least temporarily, without Allen York began for the Everblades Wednesday night after his recall to Syracuse earlier in the week as part of the ripple effect of the Ben Bishop injury. Gwinnett jumped out to a quick 2-0 lead, but the Blades stormed back scoring five straight, topped off by Bolt prospect Artem Sergeev's power-play marker early in the 3rd that would become the eventual game-winner. Kevin Lynch, fresh off signing his AHL contract with Syracuse, tallied in his first game back with Florida. Both Jeff Costello and Mike Aviani had helpers in the five-goal run. Gwinnett, losers of four straight, will get another chance to end the East Division leader's six-game win streak on Friday night.

The Blades bent but didn't break in Saturday's 5-4 shootout win against visiting Indy, preserving a 5-game win streak behind Adam Brace's hat trick on teddy bear toss night. A roller coaster affair with Florida charging out of the gate with three 1st period goals and then the Fuel responding with three 2nd period goals. The Everblades peppered Indy with 48 shots, and Allen York was tested in the 2nd and 3rd periods giving up 4 goals before making 28 saves for his 12th win. York made three saves in OT and then stuffed all four Fuel shooters in the skills match to earn 3rd Star honors. Lightning camper Mike Aviano scored Florida's 2nd goal with Jeff Costello drawing an assist. The Gwinnett Gladiators roll into Estero for a pair of games this week.

The visiting Indy Fuel with former Bolt prospect Kirill Gotovets failed in a 3rd period two-goal rally against the Everblades in Estero. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev assisted on what would be Mitch Wahl's 2nd period game winning marker. Allen York notched his 11th victory in light duty, seeing only 17 Indy shots. Florida owns the ECHLs best win percentage, sporting a gaudy 0.825 having won 4 straight and 9 of their 10 games and owning a +28 goal differential. The Blades and Fuel rematch Saturday night.

After an extended road trip, the Thunder returned home for a tilt against the Quad City. Wichita Wichita feels like they have been in a funk since that 180+ PIM brawl in Elmira, and Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier is struggling defensively. On the ice for all three Mallard goals, Gauthier is mired in a mini-funk of his own after racking up 15 PIMs of his own in that raucous Jackals game. The Mallards leap-frogged the Thunder in the Central Division with Friday's win as Wichita rides a 3-game losing streak and only 4 wins in their last 10. No time to hang your head, Wichita takes on Rapid City Saturday night.

A statement game for the Blades. The Jackals rolled into Estero Wednesday night tied with the Everblades atop the East Division and found out what playing the team with the ECHL's best win percentage is like. After tripling up Elmira, Florida now leads the Jackals by two points with 5 games in hand. In fact, the Blades have games in hand on all the top teams in every division in the ECHL and still paces them in points. Allen York returned to the nets for Florida after missing several starts due an injury sustained on the extended road trip, cruising to his 10th win of the season amid light duty. Next up, former Bolt prospect Kirill Gotovets and the Indy Fuel motors into South Florida for back-to-back games this weekend.

Wichita Thunder 4 at Tulsa Oilers 7

Normally with Wichita's stingy defense, putting up four markers all but guarantees two points, but there are no guarantees when it comes to the Thunder beating arch-nemesis Tulsa this season. Now at a ridiculous 0-6 against the Oilers on the season, Thunder goalie Tim Boron gave up 7 while wasting his team's 41 shot, 4 goal effort. Bolt prospect Danick Gauthier knotted the game at 2 with a power-play tally early in the second period and then assisted on another power play goal early in the 3rd to draw the team up to 5-4 deficit. Frustration boiled over for the Thunder 30 seconds after Oilers scored a power play goal with 90 seconds left. The game had been chippy since the mid-point and with 80 seconds left, three Wichita players got 10-minute conducts for continuing altercations, including Bolt prospect Daniel Milan. Gauthier is tied for the ECHL lead in power-play goals. Wichita returns home Friday night after an extended road trip to square off against Quad City.

Sunday's game in Elmira between the Jackals and the Thunder got terribly out of hand at 13:10 of the 3rd period. After two-plus periods of chippy play with several high stickings, slashings, boardings, and cross-checkings and the Jackals already ahead 5-1, a line brawl broke out including both goalies leaving their creases. In all, 11 players received misconducts and a total of 188 minutes of penalties were handed out for the game. Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier received a fighting major and 10-minute misconduct for a secondary altercation, and fellow prospect Dan Milan received a roughing minor and a fighting major. Milan did have the primary assist on Wichita's lone goal, a power-play marker in the 2nd period. Gauthier was held off the score sheet, but managed a game-high five shots despite missing the final 6:50 of the game. The road trip for the Thunder concludes Wednesday against the Oilers in Tulsa.
