About the Everblades: Mitch Wahl ended the regular season with a 17-game point streak which tied him with Allen’s Chad Costello for the longest point streak in the ECHL this season.  Wahl’s point streak also broke a team record previously held by former Everblades great Tom Buckley (16 games) in 2001.  Florida received the services of forward Corey Trivino who returned on loan from the Portland Pirates (AHL) earlier this week. Trivino posted nine points (6g, 3a) in five games played with Florida earlier this season.    Allen York is expected to start in goal tonight for Florida.

About the Solar Bears:  Florida will need to be mindful of forward Jacob Cepis who has totaled 17 points (6g, 11a) in 13 games played against the Everblades this season.  Garret Sparks is expected to start between the pipes for Orlando this evening.  Sparks recently posted a 33-save shutout against the ‘Blades in Orlando back on April 9.  Sparks led the ECHL this season with a .936 save percentage.
