TONIGHT:The Orlando Solar Bears seek a bounce-back win against the Florida Everblades after falling in a 5-4 overtime contest on Thursday night in Game 3. Orlando still maintains a 2-1 series lead against the Everblades, its best start in the Kelly Cup Playoffs.

MANDERSON TIED WITH ANELOSKI, MCINNIS:Denver Manderson’s three-point effort in Game 3 improved his playoff totals to six points (3g-3a), tied for sixth in league scoring. His six playoff points ties him with Bryce Aneloski and Johnny McInnis for the most career playoff points with Orlando in franchise history.

DOHERTY CHIPS IN ANOTHER TWO ASSISTS:Taylor Doherty’s second multi-point game of the postseason in Game 3 gave him five points (2g-3a), good for third in playoff scoring among blueliners, behind only Colorado’s Matt Register (eight points) and Kalamazoo’s Eric Kattelus (seven points).

MASSA POISED TO OVERTAKE SPARKS:Goalie Ryan Massa has already staked Orlando in both of its wins, and his next playoff victory for the Solar Bears will set both franchise marks for wins by a goaltender in a single postseason and career playoff victories by a goaltender.

ROOKIES EXTEND POINT STREAK:Mason Marchment and Shane Conacher have been two of the more productive first-year players for the Solar Bears through the first three games of the opening round, as Conacher picked up his second assist in as many games on Thursday, while Marchment continued to build on an impressive three-game point streak with a goal and assist for Orlando in Game 3.
