For the second straight night the Everblades got an overtime goal to top the Gladiators. This time it was Florida leading scorer David Rutherford (pictured), who scored his 10th goal of the season. His ninth opened the game. Rutherford was a teammate of Lightning prospect Dustin Tokarski with the Spokane Chiefs from 2006 to 2008 and won a Memorial Cup with Tokarski and Tyler Johnson in 2008.

Nagle notched his first professional point in the game, an assist in the second period.

The News-Press has the description:

"The Everblades extended the lead early in the second period on a heads up play by goalie Pat Nagle. While Gwinnett was in the midst of a line change, Nagle quickly moved the puck to the far blue line to Matt Beca. Beca charged into the zone on the right wing side and fired a shot which was redirected into the net by Rylan Galiardi."

Norfolk property Philip-Michael Devos was called up to the Admirals before the game. He had an assist in his AHL debut.
