'Blades Weekly: Rivalry with Orlando Returns as Part of Busy Week

February 3, 2020 - ECHL (ECHL) - Florida Everblades News Release

ESTERO, Fla. - Having already started their busiest month of the season, the Florida Everblades now prepare for their third four-game week of the season this week, which includes the first games against the Orlando Solar Bears since mid-November.

LAST WEEK'S RESULTS

Jan. 29 | vs. Fort Wayne Komets - W, 5-2

In a game riddled with penalty minutes, Florida scored the final three goals of the game to pick up its sixth straight win. Logan Roe posted the game-winning goal with 70 seconds left in the second period and added an assist for his 10th multi-point game of the season. Ken Appleby recorded 31 saves to earn the win for the 'Blades.

Jan. 31 | at Greenville Swamp Rabbits - W, 4-2

Cam Johnson turned out 33 shots and yielded just two goals for the second straight start to earn his fourth straight road win. Hugo Roy matched his career-high with three points (1g, 2a) and tabbed a shorthanded goal just 74 seconds after Greenville had cut Florida's lead to one in the second period on what proved to be the game-winning score.

Feb. 1 | at South Carolina Stingrays - W, 5-2

Appleby posted a 25-save effort, and Cam Maclise led the way on offense with a season-high three points (2g, 1a), as the 'Blades reached eight straight victories. The Stingrays twice cut Florida's advantage to just one in the third period, but Maclise had both goals in response to ensure the win.
