Maggio scores game-winning goal for Orlando

ORLANDO, Fla. – Daniel Maggio’s first goal of the season for Orlando proved to be the game-winner as the Solar Bears (25-18-6-2) doubled up the Norfolk Admirals (18-27-4-0) by a 4-2 score on Thursday night at the ARS.com Rink at Amway Center.

After a scoreless first period, Joe Perry opened the scoring in the second stanza when Shane Conacher fed Orlando’s leading goal scorer in the high slot, and Perry fired a shot into the top corner of the net over the glove of Brandon Anderson at 7:31. For Perry, it was his 26th goal of the season, tying his career-high set during his rookie season with Quad City in 2014-15.

Mason Marchment made it 2-0 at 8:18 when he received a pass off the half-wall from Alex Gacek and snapped a shot over the blocker of Anderson.

Domenic Alberga got the visitors on the board with a power-play goal after he drove the net and jammed John Dunbar’s centering pass from the near corner underneath Kasimir Kaskisuo at 11:01.

Orlando answered with a power-play goal of its own when Maggio settled Brenden Miller’s slapshot at the front of the net and backhanded the rebound past a sprawled Anderson at 11:21.

The Admirals pulled Anderson for an extra skater with a little over two minutes left in regulation, and the gambit paid off as Frankie Simonelli fired a shot at the left circle through a screen to beat Kaskisuo and pull Norfolk back to within one goal at 17:56, but Chris Crane secured the victory for Orlando with an empty-net tally at 19:39.

Kaskisuo picked up the win for Orlando with 32 saves on 34 shots against; Anderson took the loss with 38 stops on 41 shots against.

Three Stars:1) Daniel Maggio – ORL2) Joe Perry – ORL3) Kasimir Kaskisuo – ORL
