Alex Hutchings gave Florida a 2-1 lead just a couple minutes into the second period but Gwinnett was back ahead before the start of the final frame where Brayden Irwin scored a PP goal for the visitors to push them into the extra session where the South division's top club finally dispatched them. Despite being crushed in even-strength scoring, Florida, which was outshot 39-29 in the contest, relied on a superb special teams effort, scoring all of its goals on the power play opportunities and only failing to produce on one while killing all three of Gwinnett's chances with the man-advantage. Hutchings, who notched his 11th of the season with the Everblades on the power play by parking himself in front of the net, corralling a feed from behind the net by Leigh Salters and stuffing the puck past Gladiators netminder Louis Domingue, now has goals in two-straight games. Landry's two-game point-scoring streak came to a swift conclusion. Rob Madore was in net again for the Everblades with John Muse backing him up with Pat Nagle out of the lineup. Maxime Langelier-Parent, still recovering from an injury sustained early in the season, were inactive. Florida (15-12-7, 39 PTS) ends its road trip with a Sunday afternoon tilt against South Carolina (16-18-4, 36 PTS).
