Florida rallied from a two-goal deficit in the second period before allowing South Carolina its second power play tally of the game midway through the final frame and to tack on an empty netter. With the win, the Stingrays moved into a tie with the Everblades for 2nd-place in the South Division though Florida holds two games in hand. Both teams now trail division-leading Gwinnett by four points with the regular season rapidly approaching its conclusion. Charles Landry, who has spent chunks of the past couple months with Syracuse, notched his first goal for Florida since January 20th after having gone eight games without finding the net. Pat Nagle, after turning in a brilliant performance on Wednesday, took the loss for the Everblades. Florida (33-21-11, 77 PTS) and South Carolina(35-25-7, 77 PTS) will square off again late Sunday afternoon in yet another crucial match for both clubs.
