Pat Nagle won his fourth game in a row, stopping 30 of 31 shots Thursday in Greenville for a big Florida win. The Everblades are now tied with Greenville for second in the South Division, five points behind Gwinnett. Statistically, the solid effort Thursday dropped Nagleâ€™s goals against average below 3 and his raised his save percentage over 90%. Reports said Nagle worked with Lightning goaltender coach Franz Jean a couple weeks ago, which helped Nagle's game. Jean meets with Nagle once a month. This was the first game since The â€˜Blades (and Nagle) were involved in a line brawl. Florida played without Philip-Michael Devos and Charles Landry, who were recalled recently by AHL Norfolk. Alex Hutchings remains out with an upper-body injury. He hasnâ€™t played since November 12.
