Florida jumped out early with Adam Brace's seventh of the season coming just 12 seconds into the game. The Everblades doubled their lead at the 4:20 mark of the period when Mitch Wahl one-timed a feed from Brace past Travis Fullerton. The Jackals bounced back and cut the Florida lead in half with Matt Tassone's 10th goal of the season 14:14 into the first period. Mike Seidel shoveled the puck into the corner and Taylor Stefishen fed Tassone in the slot for the tally.
The Everblades generated multiple scoring chances early in the second period but Fullerton made multiple exceptional saves to keep the Jackals within one. However, Florida would eventually add their third goal at 10:34 of the second period. Alex Lavoie took a pass from Cameron Burt and found John McInnis in the slot for his fifth of the year. Less than a minute later Colin Jacobs' cross-ice pass was intercepted by Brace, who fed Wahl for a breakaway and his second goal of the night. McInnis would add his second goal of the night as well at 14:47 of the second period with the man advantage.
Tassone notched his second of the night with a redirect off of Steven Shamanski's point shot on the power-play at 11:32 of the third period. However, that would be as close as the Jackals would get to a comeback as Alex Aleardi added his second of the season less than a minute later.
Fullerton stopped 27 of 33 shots faced but was handed the loss as Allen York turned aside 17 of 19 shots for the win. Each team went 1-for-2 on the power-play.
