POWER PLAY CLICKING ON ROAD TRIP:Through the first four games of this seven-game road trip, the Solar Bears power play has been converting at a 4-for-16 (25%) rate, well above the team’s season average and even the top-ranked power play of the Toledo Walleye, which leads the league on the season by going 35-for-149 (23.5%).

MANDERSON WITH ANOTHER MULTI-POINT EFFORT:Denver Manderson’s three assists on Wednesday represented the forward’s 11th multi-point game of the season, tying him with Eric Faille for the team lead; the Solar Bears are 8-1-2-0 when Manderson records at least two points. Manderson’s five three-point games this season also leads Orlando. The forward is also closing in on Jacob Cepis’ franchise mark of 112 career points with the Solar Bears.

FAILLE HAS BECOME ROAD WARRIOR FOR SOLAR BEARS:Eric Faille’s 21 points scored on the road (10g-21a) for Orlando are the fourth-most in the league, and the second-highest total in the Eastern Conference.

GACEK CHIPS IN WITH HIS FIRST GAME-WINNER FOR ORLANDO:The addition of Alex Gacek has helped provide the Solar Bears with some more clutch goal-scoring ability – his game-winner for Orlando on Wednesday was actually his fourth game-winning total on the season, and ties him with Tony Cameranesi for second in the league in game-winning goals among rookies.
