TONIGHT: The Orlando Solar Bears (5-1) continue the 2019 Playoffs, presented by XYMOPrint, with Game 2 of the South Division Finals against the Florida Everblades (4-3), following Friday night’s 2-1 OT victory in Game 1.

FRYE GETS ASSIST: Defenseman Zach Frye retroactively received credit for an assist on Colby McAuley’s overtime-winner in Friday’s game. The rookie blueliner has chipped in three assists over his last four playoff games with the Solar Bears. His three assists in the playoffs are tied for second among rookie defensemen in the postseason.

BOURKE PILING UP SHOTS: Forward Troy Bourke has been an instrumental part of Orlando’s offense, as his playmaking abilities have generated a team-leading four assists through six games. Bourke has also been contributing with shots on goal, as he also leads the team with 23. This accounts for nearly 11.4 percent of Orlando’s total shot production in the playoffs.

FEJES CONTINUES TO BE OFFENSIVE FORCE: Hunter Fejes has remained a top contributor to Orlando’s forward corps here in the playoffs, as he is averaging over a goal per game. Fejes’ third-period tally on Friday tied the score at 1-1 and gives him five goals through four games in the postseason and ties him for third among all skaters in the playoffs.
