SENDEN THE FANS HOME HAPPY!

ESTERO, Fla. – In a game which saw the teams play scoreless hockey for two full periods and battle to a 1-1 deadlock through regulation, Mark Senden knocked home a blast from Logan Lambdin for the game-winning goal 77 seconds into overtime to lift the Florida Everblades to a thrilling 2-1 victory over Jacksonville Icemen Wednesday night at Hertz Arena

 

Stellar play by both goaltenders was the story of a scoreless first period. Everblades netminder David Tendeck turned aside 11 shots in his third start with the club, while his Jacksonville counterpart Matt Vernon registered 15 saves in the game’s first 20 minutes.

 

The Everblades turned up the pressure on Jacksonville throughout the entire second frame, outshooting the Icemen in dominant fashion by a 19-11 margin. While the Blades were unable to solve Vernon, and the Icemen continued to be shut down by Tendeck, the game remained scoreless through 40 minutes of play.

 

Oliver Chau took little time in the third period to snap the stalemate, registering his 18th goal of the season just 1:33 into the frame. Chau pounced on a loose puck in the Jacksonville end and buried an unassisted goal that gave the Everblades a 1-0 lead. 

 

Jacksonville responded less than seven minutes later as Matheson Iacopelli, the Icemen’s leading scorer knotted the score at 1-1 with his 21st goal of the year at the 8:13 mark to close out the scoring in regulation, before Senden tipped in Lambdin’s blast to seal the victory, beating Vernon with the game-winner at 1:17 of overtime 

 

The Everblades outshot their rivals from North Florida 48-33, making a winner of Tendeck (6-5-0-0) for the third time in as many starts with the Blades. Vernon (20-6-1-0) registered 46 saves in a losing effort.


The Everblades will be back in action on Friday, March 8 contest as the Orlando Solar Bears visit Hertz Arena for a 7:30 p.m. contest. It will be another 239 Friday, as fans can purchase two tickets, two mixed drinks and a souvenir program for the special price of $39.
