About Tonight’s Game: The Everblades open up a four-games in five-day slate this week, and the first of three against Cincinnati.  Florida sits atop the South Division here in the early season, while the Cyclones rank third in the Western Conference’s Central Division. Both teams enter tonight’s game riding a three-game winning streak.

Last Time Out: Michael Kirkpatrick recorded three assists, while Martin Ouellette was stellar in goal making 30 saves to lead the Everblades to a 4-2 win at Orlando on Saturday evening…Also on Saturday, the Cyclones earned a 2-1 decision at home against Adirondack.

About the Everblades:  Michael Kirkpatrick is currently riding a nine-game point streak, which is tied for the second longest active streak in the ECHL. In addition, defenseman Gus Young is riding a four-game points streak.  The Everblades have been a little shorthanded on the backend due to injuries and call-ups at the defensive position. However, newcomers Sean Robertson and Vinny Muto will fill those voids and make their home debut this evening. Overall, the Everblades are the top defensive team in the ECHL with a 2.22 goals-against per-game average…Rookie netminder Callum Booth is expected to start in goal this evening.
