5th win in a row for the Lions
The Lions extended their winning streak to five games on Thursday night, defeating the Florida Everblades 3-2.
Everblades’ leading scorer Blake Winiecki put the home team up 1-0 early in the first period.
Florida increased its lead to 2-0 early in the second period with a power play marker from Nathan Perkovich. But late in the period the Lions’ leading scorer Peter Abbandonato cut the ‘Blades lead in half, beating goaltender Tomas Vomacka with a perfect shot.
The Lions’ Shawn St-Amant evened the score early in the third period, capitalizing on a rebound in front of the net. And then with just over two minutes remaining in the game, Lions forward Alexis D’Aoust netted the winner – the second time in back-to-back games that he’s accomplished that feat.
The Lions and the Everblades will go at it again on Saturday night at 7:00 p.m. at Hertz Arena in Estero, Florida. It will be the third and final game of the three-game series.
