Everblades Weekly: Stretch against Icemen continues with 2 home tilts

ESTERO, Fla. — The Florida Everblades (3-3-2-0, 8 pts.) continue a stretch of five straight games against the Jacksonville Icemen with a two-game home series this weekend on Friday and Saturday at Hertz Arena.

The Everblades earned three of four potential points against Jacksonville this past weekend, handing the Icemen their first loss of the season on Friday night before picking up a point in a 4-3 overtime loss on Saturday. Jacksonville was the only remaining undefeated team in the ECHL entering last weekend, but Florida scored twice in the first period and twice in the third period on Friday to earn the 4-2 victory.

Including the two games this weekend, Florida will face Jacksonville 11 more times this season.

Florida holds a 14-0-2-0 record against the Icemen in 16 all-time meetings.
