Las Vegas  – The Las vegas Wranglers dug themselves in a little deeper Tuesday night falling to the Everblades 3-1 in game four and now trail Florida 3-1 in the best-of-seven series.

Everblades forward Brandon MacLean scored the opening goal late in the first, putting Florida up 1-0 at the end of the period. Florida then took a two-goal lead on left wing Matt Marquardt’s sixth postseason goal at 5:15 of the second period, but Wranglers left wing Pete MacArthur was quick to respond with a goal less than 90 seconds later. At the end of the second, the Everblades held the 2-1 score advantage with the Wranglers holding the 21-15 shot advantage.

The Wranglers were unable to capitalize on two power plays in the third, and with 4:23 left in regulation, Everblades forward Justin Shugg tallied a goal to regain the team’s two-goal lead. Florida took the game with a final score of 3-1 minutes later, and the 3-1 series advantage as well.

Game 5 is Wednesday afternoon at 4:30 p.m. from Germain Arena, and the Everblades need one more win to take the 2012 Kelly Cup. With a Wranglers win tomorrow, Game 6 will be forced back at Orleans Arena on Friday, May 25.
