Lightning defensive prospect Artem Sergeev was back in the lineup Wednesday night after missing 3 games, as the Tulsa Oilers made their first ever visit to Germain Arena in Estero. Lightning camper Mike Aviani twice notched the primary assist on critical equalizers. The Everblades were playing catch up all night, and early in the 3rd period Aviani assisted on the goal that knotted the game at 4-4, capping off a 2-goal deficit rally. The Oilers would go back ahead midway through the 3rd, but Aviani once again assisted on the 5-5 equalizer a few minutes later. Sergeev was credited with the primary assist on Florida's 2nd goal. Tulsa sealed the win 1-0 in the shootout, as Jeff Costello and four other failed to convert. The Oilers and Florida play again Friday night.

Milan now sports a season-high three-game point streak with 4 assists during that span.

Allen York returned to the Everblade lineup Saturday night after being reassigned from Syracuse and stopped 30 of 34 shots for his 14th win of the season. Greenville put on another 3rd period clinic, following up Friday night's 4-goal final period with a 3-goal rally from a 4-1 deficit. Florida needed Adam Brace's 3rd period marker to split the weekend series with the Road Warriors. Jeff Costello continues a bit of hot streak with a goal and a short-handed assist in the Everblade victory. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev did not play for the Everblades and there is no indication that he has been recalled to Syracuse with Nikita Nesterov still in Tampa. However, earlier Saturday Florida acquired defenseman Rob Florentino from the Elmira Jackals as completion of the future considerations of the October 15th trade that sent forward Kevin Hart from Florida to Elmira. The Everblades return home next weekend for back-to-back games against Orlando.

The win against Quad City tied them with the Mallards for 2nd on the Central Division board. Both Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier and Daniel Milan assisted on RG Flath's game-winning goal in the 3rd period. The Thunder play the division-leading Americans Sunday.
