Allen York returned to the Everblade lineup Saturday night after being reassigned from Syracuse and stopped 30 of 34 shots for his 14th win of the season. Greenville put on another 3rd period clinic, following up Friday night's 4-goal final period with a 3-goal rally from a 4-1 deficit. Florida needed Adam Brace's 3rd period marker to split the weekend series with the Road Warriors. Jeff Costello continues a bit of hot streak with a goal and a short-handed assist in the Everblade victory. Lightning prospect Artem Sergeev did not play for the Everblades and there is no indication that he has been recalled to Syracuse with Nikita Nesterov still in Tampa. However, earlier Saturday Florida acquired defenseman Rob Florentino from the Elmira Jackals as completion of the future considerations of the October 15th trade that sent forward Kevin Hart from Florida to Elmira. The Everblades return home next weekend for back-to-back games against Orlando.

The Thunder rallied with two 3rd period goals to extend their win streak Saturday night against the Mallards. Wichita has only a shootout loss blemish in their last 8 games of otherwise 7 victories. The win against Quad City tied them with the Mallards for 2nd on the Central Division board. Both Lightning prospect Danick Gauthier and Daniel Milan assisted on RG Flath's game-winning goal in the 3rd period. The Thunder play the division-leading Americans Sunday.
