Blades Take Win Streak on the Road

February 20, 2021 - ECHL (ECHL) - Florida Everblades News Release

ORLANDO, Fla. - The Florida Everblades (18-5-0-1) put their six-game win streak on the line tonight against the Orlando Solar Bears (11-9-2-0) at the Amway Center. Last night against Orlando on home ice, Florida's Brad McClure scored the overtime winner to seal a 3-2 Everblades victory.

After Friday's win, the Everblades have now won a season-best six in a row and have earned points in their last eight. In the six-game winning stretch, Florida has outscored opponents 24-10. The Blades have also come out on top of Orlando in the last three meetings between the clubs.

Captain John McCarron scored his 11th goal of the season last night to tie the game at 2-2 in the second period. The goal marked McCarron's 120th of his Everblades career, and the 28-year-old is now tied with Tom Buckley for the third most Everblades goals all-time.

With a win last night and an Indy Fuel (16-4-1-0) loss, the Everblades are now only a game behind the first-place Fuel in the Eastern Conference. A Florida win and an Indy loss tonight would launch the Everblades into first place.

The next home game for the Blades comes Wednesday, Feb. 24 at 7:30 p.m. at Hertz Arena against the South Carolina Stingrays (9-8-5-0).
