Florida, which narrowly outshot South Carolina 25-22 for the match, scored just a minute into overtime to take sole possession of 2nd-place in the South Division. The Everblades continue to trail division-leading Gwinnett, which won its fourth-straight game Sunday, by four points and now have a tenuous one-point lead over both South Carolina and Greenville. Alex Hutchings had a big night, registering his first points since returned from Syracuse. Hutchings, who opened the game's scoring late in the first period, struck after he planted himself outside the paint and put his stick on a centering feed from Mathieu Roy. He also had the secondary assist on Mike Ratchuk's game-winner in overtime. Pat Nagle sat in favor of Jesse Deckert, who stopped 19 of 22 shots to boost his record to 4-0-1 withe the Everblades. Florida (34-21-11, 79 PTS) next plays host to Cincinnati (40-18-8, 88 PTS), which has already clinched the North Division, on Friday.
