Florida, which entered the final period of play trailing by a goal, scored three goals -- a game-tying tally early in the period, a late lead-taker and an empty-netter -- to polish off host Fort Wayne in the first of a two-game set. Kristers Gudlevskis saw a bit more action than he had in several preceding matches but delivered yet another sound performance between the pipes for the Everblades, earning the game's first star award. Gudlevskis narrowly out-dueled his counterpart, Andrey Makarov, a former teammate of Tampa Bay's 2012 1st-rounder, netminder Andrey Vasilevskiy. Danick Gauthier, Maxime Langelier-Parent, Charles Landry and Carl Neilsen missed the game being still on assignment with AHL Syracuse. Dan Milan was out of the lineup yet again. Florida (13-4-2, 28 PTS) will play Fort Wayne again (6-6-3, 15 PTS) on Saturday before returning home for a brief spell.

Florida built a two-goal lead heading into the third period before outscoring Kalamazoo 2-1 in the final frame to take the opener of its present three-game road trip. Kristers Gudlevskis won his second-consecutive start but allowing two goals meant his sterling 1.68 goals-against average (tops in the league) and his .928 save percentage (eighth-best) actually declined, albeit only by a very small margin. Maxime Langelier-Parent joined Danick Gauthier, Charles Landry and Carl Neilsen with AHL Syracuse. Dan Milan remained a scratch. Florida (12-4-2, 26 PTS) now has a Turkey Day battle against Fort Wayne (6-5-3, 15 PTS) on the docket.

After dropping the first two contests of its weekend series with Orlando, Florida pulled off a lopsided Saturday night shutout victory in front of its home fans to reclaim first place in the South Division. Three of the Everblades six goals with with the man-advantage. The Solar Bears were unable to convert any of their five power play opportunities. Kristers Gudlevskis had a limited workload for the third-straight night but was able to turn aside all 22 Solar Bear shot attempts to earn his second shutout while manning the crease for the Everblades. Gudlevskis has now allowed two or fewer goals in all but one of his starts. Danick Gauthier, Charles Landry and Carl Neilsen remain with AHL Syracuse. Dan Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent were scratched. Florida (11-4-2, 24 PTS) next has a few midweek road matches beginning with Kalamazoo (6-4-1, 13 PTS) on Wednesday.

Florida finally managed to solve netminder Garret Sparks early in the third period but surrendered a goal in the waning minutes of regulation to give Orlando its second-straight victory in the three-game weekend set between the two clubs. Sparks was sharp in goal for the Solar Bears, stopping 32 of 33 Everblades shots on goal. Sparks' counterpart, Lightning prospect Kristers Gudlevskis, also gave his squad a sound effort in net. Special teams was part of the difference tonight as the Solar Bears converted one of the six power play opportunities it was awarded while the Everblades came up short on all three of its shots with the man-advantage. Charles Landry, Danick Gauthier and Carl Nielsen remain up with AHL Syracuse. Florida (10-4-2, 22 PTS) and Orlando (10-5-1, 21 PTS) go at it again Saturday night.

Florida closed out its weekend with a compelling road victory over South Carolina to assume sole possession of first place in its division and the league's standings. The Everblades scored, won the special teams battle and the club's goaltender stood tall. Speaking of Kristers Gudlevskis, the Latvian netminder put up two stellar bodies of work this weekend after the slight hiccup that was his showing in Thursday night's loss to Gwinnett. Through his five ECHL starts and the AHL action he's already seen, Gudlevskis has kicked off his North American pro career in rather impressive fashion. Rearguard Dan Milan remained inactive. Recalled defenseman Charles Landry and forward Danick Gauthier are still with AHL Syracuse. Florida (10-2-2, 22 PTS) have a three-game set against Orlando divisional and interstate rival Orlando (8-5-1, 17 PTS) looming, with the puck dropping for the first match on Thursday night.

Kristers Gudlevskis, and Florida, rebounded from a frustrating loss to Gwinnett the night before, blanking their hosts to move into a tie back atop the South division. Gudlevskis saw another wild swing to his season stats as it was just the fourth match in an Everblades jersey for him, his second since rejoining the team. It's encouraging to see the young Latvian bounce back and earn his third victory after such a sub-par showing in Friday's contest. Blueliner Dan Milan was inactive while recalled defenseman Charles Landry and forward Danick Gauthier remain with Syracuse. Florida (9-2-2, 20 PTS) will finish its weekend with a road match against another divisional rival, red-hot South Carolina (9-0-2, 20 PTS), on Saturday.

After falling behind by a pair of goals shortly after the game's midpoint, Florida rallied and tied the game early in the third period but allowed a late goal to come up just short against host Gwinnett. After spending the past few weeks up with AHL Syracuse, Kristers Gudlevskis finally had a forgettable night in net and suffered his first loss as a pro. With only two previous games of action for the Everblades, Gudlevskis' stats took a big hit with tonight's performance. Dan Milan was a scratch yet again while recalled defenseman Charles Landry and forward Danick Gauthier remain with Syracuse. Florida (8-2-2, 18 PTS) and Gwinnett (4-8-0, 8 PTS) square off again Friday night.

After falling into a 3-0 hole just past the game's midpoint, Florida successfully mounted a third-period comeback to push the game into extra time where Toledo buried its third power play goal of the night to secure the win. The Everblades received a bit of good news in that netminder Kristers Gudlevskis was reassigned from Syracuse and will rejoin the club. For now, recalled defenseman Charles Landry and forward Danick Gauthier remain with AHL Syracuse. Florida (8-1-2, 18 PTS) will return to action Thursday night with a road match against Gwinnett (2-8-0, 4 PTS).

Florida suffered its first regulation loss of the season, falling to Elmira in nearly hard-to-fathom fashion after finishing the match with a 41-18 shot advantage, done in by a stretch lasting from the late-first through late-second periods that saw Elmira take a 6-3 lead. The Everblades clawed back to make a game of it in the final frame but ultimately squandered an impressive special teams performance in which the team capitalized on one of its three power play opportunities while also registering three shorthanded tallies. Carl Nielsen, who was the only member of the Lightning or Crunch organizations to appear in the contest with Danick Gauthier, Kristers Gudlevskis and Charles Landry on recall to Syracuse and both Dan Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent scratched, scored his first goal of the season. After splitting against Elmira, Florida (8-0-1, 17 PTS) closes out its weekend Saturday night against Toledo (3-3-1, 7 PTS).
