About the Everblades: The Everblades have been heavily involved in the transaction wire this week.  On Tuesday the team received the services of forwards Jon DiSalvatore, Carter Sandlak and goaltender Rasmus Tirronen from the American Hockey League (AHL).  On Thursday, forwards Kevin Lynch and Ryan Martindale were loaned to the Syracuse Crunch (AHL). The loss of Lynch and Martindale will leave the ‘Blades thin at the center position heading into the weekend.  However, rookie center Maxime St-Cyr has been heating up as of late, recording a goal in three of the past four games… Rasmus Tirronen will start in goal tonight for the Everblades.
