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.

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.

With Allen York sidelined with an injury, Florida's first ever game in Indy against the expansion Fuel was a wild affair with 13 goals scored. The Blades were ahead 6-3 at the 2nd intermission, but surrendered three 3rd period goals on 17 Indy shots. Jeff Costello notched his 4th goal of the season about 7 minutes into the 3rd that would stand as the eventual game winner. Lightning camper Mike Aviani would get the primary assist on Costello's marker. Fuel rookie blueliner Kirill Gotovets, a former Lightning 2009 7th round pick, played his 13th game of the season tonight for Indy. Gotovets signed an AHL contract in September with Chicago Blackhawks' AHL affiliate in Rockford and was reassigned by Rockford to Indy in October. Gotovets, a graduate of Cornell, had his rights traded to Chicago by Tampa in April 2012 for current BP Prospect-of-the-Week Philippe Paradis. Florida returns to Estero for a Wednesday home tilt against Elmira before Indy rolls into South Florida for back-to-back games next weekend.

Not the homecoming Daniel Milan was looking for as the Thunder rolled into Brampton for Milan's first game against his old team. He did put up a season-high 5 shots, but Beast goalie Trevor Cann turned away 45 Thunder shots, upstaging Wichita netminder and Edmonton Oiler prospect Tyler Bunz who currently sports the ECHL's 2nd stingiest goals-against-average (Allen York is 4th). Followers of the Florida Everblades will recall that Cann was acquired last season by the Blades when Lightning prospect Kristers Gudlevskis was recalled to the Syracuse Crunch after parting ways with Riku Helenius. Cann appeared in 29 games for Florida last season posting a 15-10-1 record. The Beast also managed to do what few Central Division teams have been able to accomplish and that is keeping the Wichita Wizard Danick Gauthier off the scoreboard. The road trip for the Thunder continues Sunday in upstate NY against the Elmira Jackals.

Bolt prospect Artem Sergeev rocketed two shots high past Oscar Dansk from the blue line within the first 5 minutes of the game, as the Everblades cruised to a 3-1 road win in Michigan. Sergeev earned First Star honors for his 2-goal effort, including the eventual game-winner. Allen York started the contest in net for Florida and earned his ninth win of the season despite leaving the game early in the 1st period with an injury. The Blades conclude their road trip in Indianapolis on Friday night against the Fuel.

They say all good things come to an end, which includes the Everblades 6-game win streak and Allen York's personal 8-game streak. Florida's 3rd period comeback falls 1 goal short, as Wheeling's Riley Brace scored two 2nd period power-play goals to break open a scoreless 1st period. York last lost on Oct 24th, and the Everblades had reeled off wins in 11 of their last 12 contests. Florida's big road trip continues Wednesday night in Kalamazoo against the Wings.

The Thunder now on a little 3-game win streak in an important home win against the division leading Americans. Lightning forward prospect Danick Gauthier potted the insurance goal with less than four minutes to play, earning Third Star honors. Dan "Stylin" Milan fought Gary Steffes in the 2nd period when the game was knotted 1-1. Wichita has clawed their way back up to 3rd in the division behind the Americans and the Tulsa Oilers, whom they play Sunday afternoon in Wichita.

With four Everblade standouts recalled to the American League (Lynch, Trivino, Cornell, and Desjardins), Lightning notables shone in Florida's 5-1 road blowout against the Nailers in Wheeling.

In a back-to-back set against Gwinett in Estero Friday and Saturday nights, the Everblades emerged with a perfect 4 points and keeping a lock on the lead in the East Division. On Friday night, the Blades rallied to scored three 3rd period goals with Jeff Costello scoring the equalizer early in the period to spur the comeback. Costello also fought Anthony Perdicaro in the 2nd and Mike Aviani instigated fisticuffs with James McEwan. Allen York turned away 26 shots for the win.

On Saturday night, Allen York got the nod in nets again and pitched a 21-shot 2-0 shutout, earning First Star honors. It was York's 2nd shutout of the season, and his 8th victory. Jeff Costello did not play. Florida next plays a back-to-back in Wheeling next weekend.

A night after being scratched, Lightning camper Mike Aviani pots Florida's 3rd goal of the 1st period in Sunday afternoon's road game victory over the Gwinnett Gladiators. Jeff Costello assisted on Aviani's goal, the night after scoring his first professional goal. Allen York was rather pedestrian in net, allowing 3 goals on 22 shots, but when your offense puts a touchdown up on the scoreboard you don't have to be stellar to get the win. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev was whistled 55 seconds into the game for his first penalty of the season. Both teams had their power play clicking at 50%, but the high octane Everblade offense overwhelmed the Gladiators amid a 40 shot barrage. Florida captured all six points on the weekend three-in-three road trip, and the Everblades return to Estero 1st on the table in the East Division and 2nd in the conference behind Fort Wayne. Gwinnett makes the 9-hour trip down I-75 from Duluth to Estero for a back-to-back rematch against the Everblades next Friday and Saturday night.

Gauthier was credited with the primary assists on both of the Thunder's first and third goals, with that 3rd goal being a crucial power play insurance marker with just 85 seconds left in the game. Gauthier finishes the 4-game week with a gaudy stat line of 2-4-5 with 20 shots and a +3 rating. The Thunder next plays Tuesday night in Tulsa against the Oilers.

Jeff Costello notched his first pro goal Saturday night on the road in Charleston. Knowing the tough and pesky game that Costello plays, you might think it was a greasy lunch pail type of goal, but you would be wrong. Costello flipped a slick backhander 5-hole for Florida's fourth goal of the game. More good news from the Low Country with Lightning defensive prospect Artem Sergeev returning to the lineup after missing a couple of games with an injury. Florida next plays Sunday afternoon in Duluth against the Gladiators.

Wichita mounted a spirited comeback in the final two minutes of the game behind a goal and primary assist Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier. Unfortunately, the Thunder could not manufacture the equalizer having gone down 3-0 during the first two periods. A bit difficult to justify losing 3-2 with the opposition only putting 17 shots on goal. Thunder goalie Tyler Bunz needs to be better there. For those keeping score at home, Gauthier is 4-3-7 with 20 shots in 7gp since joining the Thunder. Wichita hosts the Missouri Mavericks Sunday afternoon.

Allen York managed to stay sharp amid light duty against the Stingrays Friday night in Charleston, facing just 17 shots as the Everblades cruised to a 4-1 victory. Returning to the ice for Florida was Jeff Costello, recently reassigned from Syracuse in exchange for Everblade forward Kevin Lynch (who scored for the Crunch). Costello was a thorn all night under the Stingrays skin, logging two boarding minors, a high sticking minor, and a fighting major with South Carolina blueliner Wade Epp. Costello and Epp are no strangers as the Notre Dame and Northern Michigan alums played against one another numerous times during their recent four year college careers. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev remained sidelined with an injury. The Everblades travel to Duluth, GA to take on back-to-back games against the Gladiators to finish up the weekend road trip.
