G Pat Nagle, FLA: W, 2.00 GAA, 35 S / 37 SA (.946 SV%)
Season totals: 20 GP, 11-6-1, 3.13 GAA, 556 S / 615 SA (.904 SV%), 0 SO

Florida followed up its pasting of Greenville this past Sunday with another stirring victory at home, working its way to a commanding 5-0 lead while keeping Trenton off the board until late in the final period. Pat Nagle, who earned the game's third star, delivered a statistical duplicate of his last performance, stopping nearly everything thrown his way en route to earning his 11th victory of the season. Nagle's save percentage, which has hovered below .900 for much of the season, has quietly crept to more respectable territory. Alex Hutchings followed up a two-point effort against the Road Warriors with a goal, which came off a rebound late in the second period while on the power play and put the Everblades up 4-0, and an assist. Hutchings is now back within striking distance of point-per-game territory. Defenseman Charles Landry remains in Syracuse with the Crunch. Florida (22-15-7, 51 PTS) and Trenton (17-21-6, 40 PTS), which remains at the bottom of the Atlantic division, are back at it Friday night in Estero.
