About Tonight’s Game: This evening’s ECHL match-up features the first ever meeting between the Florida Everblades and the Utah Grizzlies.  The Everblades enter tonight’s play with an eight-point lead over second place Greenville who defeated Wichita earlier this afternoon.  The Grizzlies compete in the Western Conference’s Mountain Division.   Utah is unbeaten in its last three games and currently sits in sixth in the Mountain Division, but is just three points out of a playoff spot.   The Everblades are winless against Western Conference foes this season with a 0-1-0-1 record.

Last Time Out:   Anthony Peters stopped all 23 shots faced to help lift the Everblades to a 4-0 victory over the Atlanta Gladiators Saturday night at Germain Arena.  The win was the 30th for the Everblades against South Division opponents this season....Utah's Colin Martin recorded a hat trick to lead the Grizzlies to a 5-4 home victory over the Alaska Aces Saturday night.

About the Everblades:  Brendan O’Donnell enters tonight tied for a league best 16-game point-streak.  With a point tonight, O’Donnell can tie a club record for the longest point streak set by Mitch Wahl in 2015... Forward Michael Kirkpatrick is expected to return to the lineup tonight after missing the last eight games with an injury.....Anthony Peters will start in goal for Florida tonight.  Last weekend, Peters moved into second All-Time in Everblades club history in wins (56). He trails Marc Magliarditi (1998-2001) who is first with 70 wins.
