Solar Bears Game 20 • Away Game 6 • ECHL Game 278

WHO: Orlando Solar Bears (11-6-2-0) at Greenville Swamp Rabbits (9-7-2-0)VENUE: Bon Secours Wellness Arena, Greenville, S.C.DATE: Tuesday, Dec. 6, 7 p.m.WATCH: ECHL.TVLISTEN: Visit our website or download the new Solar Bears mobile app to listen to the game via MixlrTONIGHT:The Orlando Solar Bears dig into the first of two games against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. Orlando has earned five out of a possible six points against Greenville this season, most recently the 7-4 School Day Game victory on Nov. 17. In that game – Drake Berehowsky’s return behind the bench for Orlando – the Solar Bears established a franchise mark for the most shots on goal in a single period, recording 26 in the third frame, while also putting up a season-high 53 shots on goal over the course of the entire contest.

CRANE CRUISING:Following his acquisition from the Allen Americans in mid-November, Chris Crane has been on a tear since joining the Solar Bears. The Ohio State University product has scored at least a goal in every game he’s played so far for Orlando, including the game-winning goal on his birthday against the Everblades last Friday.

BLOCK SHOWING SCORING TOUCH EARLY ON:Since returning to the lineup, Austin Block has been enjoying a highly productive level of play for the Solar Bears. The forward is in the midst of a four-game point streak, and his 36.4% shooting percentage leads the entire ECHL.

MANDERSON HAS BEEN RABBIT HUNTING:Denver Manderson’s success this season has extended to the matchup against Greenville – the forward netted the overtime-winning goal on Nov. 4 and followed that up on Nov. 17 with a season-high three-point effort. Manderson leads Orlando’s forwards with four points on the season against Greenville.
