Greenville began the game on the defense, as the Everblades came out firing, recording 16 shots in the first period to the five of the Swamp Rabbits.

In the second, Florida opened the scoring, as Zach Tsekos netted a shorthanded goal just 1:14 in. Greenville fell into a 2-0 deficit at 5:37 as Wilmer Skoog scored his first career goal from a rebounding puck. Greenville's offense responded with a goal at 6:36, as JD Greenway swept a loose puck into a wide-open net for his first of the season. Later, at 12:40, Tyler Inamoto sniped his second goal in as many games into the Everblades net to tie the game at 2-2.

The two sides skated to a scoreless third period, despite combining for 23 shots (12-11, Florida), sending the Rabbits into an overtime period for the first time this season.

In the extra period, after Greenville goaltender Ryan Bednard made a number of key saves on Florida shooters, Bobby Russell netted his second goal in as many days, winning the game for the Swamp Rabbits at 4:29.
