Despite being more than doubled up in shots, Florida dispatched their heavyweight divisional rivals for the third-straight time, this time at home after taking both wins on the road over the weekend, to move within two points of a tie for 1st place. Florida built up a commanding 5-2 lead heading into the final frame on the strength of three power play tallies, including two in the first ten minutes of the contest. Both teams had six opportunities with the man advantage but Gwinnett, to Florida's credit, was only able to convert once. Gwinnett scored a shorthanded goal with nine seconds remaining in regulation to top off a furious third period comeback attempt during which the Gladiators held the Everblades to just two shots while posting fourteen of their own. Florida's captain and leading scorer Mathieu Roy notched a hat trick. Pat Nagle served as backup to Rob Madore for the third-straight game. Alex Hutchings and Charles Landry remain with Syracuse of the AHL. After playing four games over the last five days, Florida (28-17-9, 65 PTS) has a couple days to rest before playing host to Evansville (19-30-5, 43 PTS), which currently brings up the rear of the North Division, on Friday night.

Corey Trivino converted a penalty shot attempt late in the second period to push Florida, which played its third-consecutive game in as many days, out to a 3-1 lead that stood through the remainder of the contest. The win marked back-to-back victories over their South Division-leading rivals and pulled the ‘Blades to within four points of first-place. Florida was outshot 40-25 in the match. Both teams went 0-for-4 with the man-advantage. With Alex Hutchings and Charles Landry still up with Syracuse of the AHL, Dan Milan and Pat Nagle, who again sat as backup, were the only Lightning prospects in the lineup. Florida (27-17-9, 63 PTS), which has won eleven of its last thirteen matches, and Gwinnett (32-21-3, 67 PTS) reconvene Tuesday in Estero in what will be the Everblades' fourth game in five nights.
