‘Blades Weekly: Grueling month of schedule set to begin

ESTERO, Fla. — On the cusp of the busiest stretch of the season, the Florida Everblades start a stretch of seven straight weeks of at least three games with a home matchup and two road tilts this week.   

LAST WEEK’S RESULTSJan. 24 | vs. Greenville Swamp Rabbits – W, 4-0The ‘Blades struck twice in the opening period, and Ken Appleby turned in a 32-save shutout to give Florida its fourth shutout of the Swamp Rabbits over the last two seasons. Joe Pendenza tabbed his first multi-goal game of the year, and Hunter Garlent set a career-high with three assists in the win. Full recap

Jan. 25 | vs. Jacksonville Icemen – W, 3-2 (SO)Cam Johnson stopped a career-high 37 shots between regulation and overtime and then denied all three shooters he faced in the ensuing shootout to help lift Florida to its fifth straight win. Blake Winiecki, Florida’s leading goal scorer, netted his 18th goal of the year in the first period and had the lone goal of the shootout. Full recap

  • Blake Winiecki scored his sixth career shootout goal in his 10th career attempt on Saturday, a goal that was his fifth career shootout-winning goal.
  • Winiecki is also tied for the league lead with three shootout goals this season.
  • Logan Roe sits just one off the league lead for plus-minus rating with a +30 mark.
  • Ken Appleby is tied for the ECHL lead in wins (18) and is third in minutes (1722).  

QUICK HITS

  • Coincidentally, Florida's last shootout before Saturday was on Dec. 4 against Jacksonville, which was also the last game Johnson played in prior to being sidelined for 20 games with an injury. 
  • The Everblades’ five-game winning streak is the longest active winning streak in the league. Florida has won 11 of its last 14 games dating back to Dec. 21. 
  • Florida has yielded two goals or fewer in four consecutive games, tying its longest stretch of the season of allowing less than three goals.
  • Because of the recent stingy defensive stretch, Florida now ranks third in the ECHL in goals allowed per game (2.69).
