Lions Roar Past Blades in Final Moments

ESTERO, Fla. - The Everblades dropped their second straight game against the Trois-Rivières Lions on Thursday night with a 3-2 outcome at Hertz Arena. 

Unlike Wednesday night, the Everblades hopped on the board first in game two when Blake Winiecki skipped in a rebound from the back door with 14:36 to play in the first period. The initial shot was taken by Jake McLaughlin from the blue line and Michael Neville earned an additional assist. 

Florida added to their lead in the second period with Nathan Perkovich locating his first goal of the season on a power-play, floating a shot over the blocker hand of Lions netminder Carmine-Anthony Pagliarulo at 4:25 of the frame. Assists went to John McCarron and Jake McLaughlin. Peter Abbondonato converted on a power play for Trois-Rivières unassisted in the period’s final four seconds to send the Everblades into the locker room with a 2-1 lead. 

Shawn St-Amant gave the Lions another strike on the power play with a drive from the high slot 5:19 into the third period. With the score reading 2-2, all four goals were scored on a 5-on-4. The Lions pulled ahead 3-2 with 2:09 on the clock with credit to Alexis D’aoust. It was his second game winning goal in as many nights to improve the Lions record to 9-7-0-0. The result brought the Everblades down to 2nd place in the south division at 8-5-2-3.
