Reading won Game 3 of their three-game set with Florida, topping the Blades 5-4 Saturday night in a game the Hanson brothers would love. Late in the first period there was a brouhaha with players leaving the bench, spearing, and former Lightning prospect and Everblades captain Mike Egener being kicked out for deliberately attempting to injure a player. On the scoresheet, Alex Hutchings scored his first goal since his return from injury and is now up to three points in two games since he came back.
