Florida stormed back from a two-goal first period deficit to stake a 4-2 past the midpoint of the final frame but Reading scored power play goals just minutes apart with regulation play winding down to force the match into overtime before finishing the Everblades for the second consecutive night. Brady Hjelle made his first start in net for the home squad, stopping 25 of 29 shots in defeat. Charles Landry's hooking minor with under three minutes remaining led to the game-tying Royals goal. With its fate hanging in the balance, Florida now heads back to Reading. The Everblades will get their crack at the Royals on Tuesday night in order to try and force a Game 7 come Wednesday.
