After the Las Vegas Wranglers landed the first blow in the ECHL's Kelly Cup Finals with Monday night's 2-1 series-opening win, the Florida Everblades answered tonight with a wicked counterattack to bag a 7-2 win in Game 2 of the best-of-7.
Man, Wranglers goaltender Joe Fallon must have looked mortal for a change. He gave up all seven goals, on just 28 shots.
And, not to put too fine a point on it, Las Vegas led 2-0 less than 16 minutes into the game before getting thoroughly whacked.
So, basically, the Everblades have stolen home-ice advantage. Game 3 is Friday in Florida.
