Florida took an early one-goal lead Friday night but Greenville clawed back in the second period before surging ahead with just minutes remaining in the game. Brendan MacLean scored the lone Florida goal by tapping in a rebound created by a Matt Marquardt shot off the rush. It was two vets, Kendall McArdle, a former Everblade and NHLer, and Brendan Connolly, who helped lead the way for Greenville; McArdle had a goal and an assist and Connolly had the game-winner. Florida, which outshot Greenville 32-27, had its fair share of chances but could not solve Buffalo Sabres prospect Nathan Lieuwen. Pat Nagle played well also for the bulk of the game but could not come up with the big save when Greenville's Connolly came bearing in on him after an Everblades turnover in the waning minutes of regulation and beat Nagle glove-side. Hutchings saw his three-game scoring streak come to an end. Daniel Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent remain inactive. The Everblades (3-3-2) play the Road Warriors (5-3-1) again tomorrow afternoon before returning home for a pair of midweek games.

Alaska Aces 4 @ Stockton Thunder 7

F Nate Thompson, AK: 0-0-0, E, 0 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 8 GP, 0-5-5, E, 12 PIM

Alaska and Stockton were actually neck-and-neck halfway through of the game. The the Thunder went on a scoring spree, tallying four goals in roughly ten minutes spanning the second and third period before the Aces managed to stop the bleeding and put up one final goal of their own. Alaska outshot Stockton 32-27 for the game. It was an ugly night for Alaska's Mark Guggenberger, who allowed five goals on eighteen shots before getting the hook late in the second forcing newly-signed netminder Brooks Ostergard, who stopped seven of nine shots, into action. Brandon Dubinsky, named the ECHL's Player of the Week on Wednesday, scored twice on four shots to give him his third consecutive multipoint game. Fellow locked-out NHLers Nate Thompson and Joey Crabb were quiet for the Aces, though Thompson did manage a neutral plus-minus on a night his team allowed five even-strength goals. The Aces (5-3-0) continue their road trip with a matinee game against the Thunder (6-1-1) on Sunday.
