Estero, FL – The Florida Everblades will continue a three-game homestand Friday at 7:30pm when they host the Elmira Jackals as part of their Military Appreciation Weekend at Germain Arena.
It will be a rematch of Wednesday’s contest that saw the Blades race out to a 4-0 lead through two periods before holding off the Jackals for a 5-2 victory.
Matthew Pistilli set a season-high for the Everblades with four points (1g, 3a) in the contest while team captain and 2012-13 ECHL-leading scorer Mathieu Roy returned to the lineup, contributing two assists in his season debut.
