David Rutherford gave Florida a lead late in the first period but Orlando tied the game midway through the middle frame before Ryan Cruthers scored the game-winner for the visiting Solar Bears on their only shot taken in the extra session. With Pat Nagle still on recall to AHL Syracuse, Rob Madore spelled John Muse, who held the fort in each of the previous eight games, in net. Madore delivered a solid debut performance with the Everblades, stopping twenty-five of twenty-seven shots in the contest. After bursting out of his scoring slump the night before, Alex Hutchings failed to register even a shot. Charles Landry was equally invisible statistically. Dan Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent, still recovering from an injury sustained early in the season, were inactive. Florida (14-10-6, 34 PTS) and Orlando (12-15-4, 28 PTS) will meet again on Thursday, with the Everblades travelling to continue the home-and-home series with a two-game set against the Solar Bears.

Alaska Aces 5 vs. Stockton Thunder 1

F Nate Thompson, AK: Did not play
Season totals: 24 GP, 7-14-21, +4, 23 PIM

Alaska, which led 3-0 by the end of the second period, easily dispatched Stockton by limiting the visitors to just three power plays and under 20 shots Saturday night. With the win, the Aces swept what was a three-game set, outscoring the Thunder 13-4 and extending their winning streak to five games in the process. Former Lightning netminder Gerald Coleman stopped all but one of seventeen shots to move his record to 9-2-0, lower his GAA to 2.34 and his bump his SV% to .912 so far this season. The Aces had again had the services of Scott Gomez but were still missing the services of fellow NHLers Nate Thompson, who missed his fifth-straight game and Brandon Dubinsky, who is still recovering from injury. Alaska (23-8-0, 46 PTS) will resume its home stand against division-rival Colorado (16-11-3, 35 PTS) on Friday.
