It was an unusual recipe for a win but Florida scored shorthanded three different times to send South Carolina, for now, to the bottom of the South division standings. The Stingrays took the initial lead before the Everblades reeled off four special teams goals in less than ten minutes time spanning the first and second periods. Florida's Mathieu Roy had the power play marker which tied the game at one; Matt Marquardt, Trevor Bruess and Aaron Bogosian also scored for the Everblades. Hutchings, who earned last week's Player of the Week honors, extended his point-scoring streak to five games with an assist on Florida's second goal by Marquardt, which came on a 2-on-1 shorthanded rush that Marquardt finished with a sharp, elevated wrister. Hutchings has five goals and three assists during this span. Landry, with his assist, had his second point in the last three games and Nagle rebounded well after allowing seven goals against Gwinnett last Saturday to earn his fourth win of the season. Daniel Milan, who's been recovering from injury, returned to the lineup for the first time in over a month as the last game action he saw was the second game of the season against Orlando. Milan was the player in the sin-bin for Florida's two shorthanded tallies by Marquardt and Bruess. Maxime Langelier-Parent remains inactive. The Everblades (6-5-3, 15 PTS) and Stingrays (6-9-1, 13 PTS) renew hostilities again Saturday night in Charleston.

Alaska Aces 5 @ Colorado Eages 4 (OT)

F Nate Thompson, AK: 2-1-3, +2, 7 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 14 GP, 3-8-11, E, 16 PIM

With his first multi-goal game of the season, Nate Thompson helped spark Alaska to a comeback victory over Colorado Friday night which extended the Aces winning-streak to five games. Joey Crabb. Alaska kept Colorado netminder Kyle Jones busy, registering double-digit shot totals in each period and out-shooting their divisional rivals 40-25 for the game, but had to rally from a 3-1 first period deficit after Colorado, for the second straight game, capitalized on multiple scoring opportunities in the first period. Aces D Kane Lafranchise had a goal and an assist to mark a four-game scoring streak and G Mark Guggenberger earned his night win despite having a subpar night by his standards. Alaska (10-4-0, 20 PTS) and Colorado (6-5-3, 15 PTS) will close out their three-game set in Anchorage on Saturday night.
