Solar Bears Game 26 • Away Game 12 • ECHL Game 344

WHO: Orlando Solar Bears (15-7-2-0) at Kalamazoo Wings (9-14-0-2)VENUE: Wings Event Center, Kalamazoo, Mich.DATE: Friday, Dec. 16, 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 carry a four-game road win streak into their final match of the regular season against the Kalamazoo Wings. Once again, the Solar Bears could have a chance to jump into first place in the ECHL’s South Division, provided the team gets the win against the Wings and the Florida Everblades fall at home to the Atlanta Gladiators.

SOLAR BEARS REACHING DOUBLE DIGITS:On Friday night Tony Cameranesi, Eric Faille and Denver Manderson joined Joe Perry in hitting the double-digit mark for goals scored this season. The Solar Bears are the only Eastern Conference team – and only second in the league along with Toledo – to have four double-digit goal scorers so far this season.

FAILLE HITS CENTURY MARK IN SHOTS:With four shots on goal on Friday, Eric Faille became the first player for Orlando to hit 100 shots on goal this season. Currently at 102, the forward has accounted for over 11 percent of Orlando’s league-leading 36.88 shots per game, which is tops among all ECHL clubs.

KASKISUO PROGRESSING WITH EACH GAME:Since Kasimir Kaskisuo began his most recent win streak for the Bears, the rookie has gone on a tear. In his most recent three outings, he has surpassed his previous season totals for most saves in a game (currently at 41), and has made 171 saves over the win streak for a .934 save percentage.
