Tuesday, Nov. 1 – Orlando 6, South Carolina 2Orlando surrendered the first goal of the game to the Stingrays’ Steve McParland, but then went on a six-goal run aided by Brett Findlay’s three points (1g-2a) and Nikolas Brouillard’s four-point (1g-3a) effort, as the Solar Bears went on to win their first road game of the season by a 6-2 score.

Thursday, Nov. 3 – Greenville 2, Orlando 1 OTAfter falling behind 1-0 in the second period, Adam Brace netted his first goal in a Solar Bears uniform off a face-off win in the offensive zone, and Ryan Massa made a career-high 44 saves, but Orlando only earned a point as Greenville’s Paul Zanette scored in the overtime period.

Friday, Nov. 4 – Orlando 3, Greenville 2 OTAfter Eric Faille scored a power-play goal late in the first period, the Swamp Rabbits countered with two quick goals in the second period. T.J. Foster netted another power-play goal for Orlando midway through the third period to tie the score at 2-2, Denver Manderson scored the game-winning goal in overtime and Kasimir Kaskisuo also earned his first victory in a Solar Bears uniform.

Saturday, Nov. 5 – Orlando 8, Atlanta 5Heading into the third period down 3-1, Orlando stormed back with a franchise-record seven goals in the final period in a 14:51 span. Massa came on in relief of Kaskisuo and made all seven stops required of him as Orlando completed its four-game road trip unbeaten in regulation, while Cason Hohmann scored a hat trick for his first three goals of the season.

BEAR TRACKS:

History MadeOrlando’s franchise-record seven goals in the third period also represented the largest number of goals scored by a team in a period of an ECHL game since the Idaho Steelheads did so on Feb. 18, 2005. Orlando’s seven goals are tied for the fifth-most goals in a single period in league history. The record of nine was set by the Johnstown Chiefs vs. Cincinnati Cyclones on Nov. 10, 1990.

Shot SpectacularThrough eight games, Orlando has managed 306 shots on goal, averaging out to a league-leading 38.25 shots on goal per game, an average of 2.25 more shots than the second-place Missouri Mavericks and Florida Everblades, both tied with 36 shots on goal per game.

Road KillThe Solar Bears emerged from their first four road games with a sterling 22-for-22 performance on the penalty kill, and Brett Findlay tallied Orlando’s first shorthanded goal of the season in Saturday’s 8-5 win at Atlanta.

Hat Trick for HohmannCason Hohmann’s hat trick for Orlando on Saturday was the first hat trick by a Solar Bears player since T.J. Foster scored three for Orlando on Nov. 20, 2015 at Evansville (6-4 win). The Solar Bears are seeking their first hat trick on home ice since Brad Ross’ three-goal performance on Oct. 18, 2014 vs. Greenville (5-2 win).

Strong Start Against South CarolinaWith a victory on home ice in October and a dominant 6-2 performance to open November against South Carolina, Orlando has already equaled its win total against the Stingrays from the 2015-16 campaign (2-5-0-1). This week’s set of three games against the Stingrays will be the final time South Carolina visits Orlando during the 2016-17 regular season.
