Brayden Irwin helped Florida erase two deficits but the visitors could not score again after falling behind to South Carolina for a third time late in the second period. A night after having the play taken to them at even-strength, the Everblades did a good job limiting the Stingrays chances but the host squad proved opportunistic, scoring three goals despite managing just nineteen shots on goal. Both teams traded power play goals. Hutchings, who now has four points (2 G, 2 A) in the last three games, is suddenly hot again and it may be at just the right time to earn a recall to AHL Syracuse if a forward spot or two opens up there as a result of of the NHL lockout ending. Pat Nagle was back in the lineup after missing the last couple of games. John Muse started and took the loss for the Everblades. Maxime Langelier-Parent, still recovering from an injury sustained early in the season, were inactive. Florida (15-12-7, 39 PTS) is next in action on Wednesday when it plays host to Toledo (19-13-4, 42 PTS).
