The Everblades allowed a 3-2 lead early in the 3rd period to evaporate into a 4-3 OT road loss Saturday night.

The league standings says you have won 75% of your games, but then again you've lost 4 of your last 5, 5 of your last 8, and the cellar-dwelling Gwinnett Gladiators have put a 7-spot up on the scoreboard in back-to-back games. Seems like a reason for concern in Estero. The once unflappable Allen York is winless in this last 3, allowing 16 goals in that span, and his save percentage has dipped below 90% for the first time this season. Friday night, the 'Blades took a 3-2 lead into 2nd intermission, partly behind Lightning camper Mike Aviani's sixth goal of the season that was the equalizer early in the 2nd period. But far from closing out a one-goal lead, Florida allowed five 3rd period Gwinnett goals on just six shots! York made just 1 save on 5 shots in that disastrous 3rd period. Florida draws the rematch Saturday night against Gwinnett looking to stop the bleeding.

Back from recall to Syracuse, Lightning prospect Dan Milan squared off against Rush forward Daniel Barczuk in a bit of fisticuffs following Wichita's 3-2 go ahead tally early in the 2nd period. The Thunder, losers of 3 straight and 6 of their last 8, get another shot at Rapid City Saturday night.

After returning to the lineup for Wednesday's game against the visiting Tulsa Oilers, Lightning defensive prospect Artem Sergeev was out of the lineup for Friday's closing series match with the Oilers. With the domino effect of defensive injuries in Tampa, Sergeev has not been recalled to Syracuse so he *must* be hurt. Goalie Allen York sat backup to Andy Iles who allowed just 2 Oilers shots through, and former Tyler Johnson teammate Mitch Wahl scored points in all four of Florida's goals. After long winning streaks after another in 2014, the Everblades have dropped 4 of their last 10. When you've been playing at an 85% clip, a 60% streak feels a bit worse than it really is. The Everblades finish up their home stand against Gwinnett Saturday night, before hitting the road for a three-in-three next weekend.
