Wednesday Win: The Florida Everblades (8-3-0-0) won their third straight game on Wednesday against the Jacksonville Icemen (3-6-1-0) with a 4-1 victory at Hertz Arena. The Blades put up three goals in the first period and never allowed the Icemen to gain momentum.
Cam Johnson played wonderfully in net for the Everblades, stopping 31 of 32 Jacksonville shots. Both Levko Koper and Blake Winiecki posted a goal and an assist against the Icemen, and Cameron Hebig added two helpers as well.
Tight Loss in Orlando: The Orlando Solar Bears (5-4-0-0) defeated the Everblades 4-3 at the Amway Center in Orlando. The Bears stormed out of the gate with an early 3-0 lead after the first 20 minutes of play. Florida fought back in the second and third periods, but the comeback ultimately fell short.
Down 3-0 in the second period, forward Lukas Craggs tipped a puck out of midair and into the net to put Florida on the board. Two minutes later, Cameron Hebig rifled a puck just underneath the crossbar to cut the Orlando lead to 3-2. That was as close as the Everblades would come to the lead, as Michael Huntebrinker’s shorthanded goal in the third period was too little too late for Florida.
