In his second game of ECHL action, Ryan O'Byrne added his second and third points with a goal and an assist to help Florida, which fell behind after taking the initial lead, defeat its divisional rival Saturday night. With Alex Hutchings out of the lineup for the second-consecutive game, Dan Milan scratched for the first time since returning from injury, Charles Landry currently up with Syracuse and Maxime Langelier-Parent still inactive due to injury, Pat Nagle was the only Lightning prospect to see any action. Nagle turned in a solid night's work for the home squad, especially considering he saw a bit more work than his counterpart, Nathan Lieuwen, as the Everblades were outshot 31-19 by the Road Warriors. Nagle was rewarded, though, thanks to the opportunistic and efficient play of his teammates. Having concluded its two-game pit stop, Florida (8-7-5, 21 PTS) begins a two-week, seven-game road trip Wednesday night against Reading (13-7-1, 27 PTS), which currently sits atop the Atlantic division and has won eight of its last ten games.

Alaska Aces 4 @ Ontario Reign 3 (OT)

F Nate Thompson, AK: 1-1-2, E, 3 SOG, 0 PIM
Season totals: 20 GP, 7-13-20, +6, 16 PIM

Nate Thompson, back in the lineup after missing his first game of the season the night before, had a goal and assist as Alaska, which has won nine of its last ten games, overcame a two-goal deficit to win the battle between the two Western Conference division leaders and pushed its win streak to five games. Former Lightning goaltender Gerald Coleman made his fourth-consecutive start, all of which he has won. With his contributions, Thompson, whose goal came on a rebound from one of his own shots, returned to the point-per-game pace he achieved a few games ago and is now riding a four game scoring streak during which he has put up eight points (3 G, 5 A). Fellow locked-out NHLer Brandon Dubinsky remains out due to injury. Alaska (16-5-0, 32 PTS), currently the top team in the league standings, now heads home to await Utah (8-8-2, 18 PTS) as both teams will begin a six-game series spanning eleven days on Wednesday.
