TODAY: The Solar Bears (2-8-2-0) wrap up their three-game road trip with an afternoon battle against the Greenville Swamp Rabbits (9-3-2-0). The Swamp Rabbits saw an eight-game winning streak come to an end last night with a 4-3 overtime loss against the South Carolina Stingrays.

WINQUIST STILL STREAKING: A correction to Friday’s box score resulted in Joshua Winquist receiving credit for a secondary assist on Nolan Valleau’s power-play goal, extending Winquist’s point streak to five games (2g-6a).

VALLEAU PERFORMING ON SPECIAL TEAMS: Valleau’s goal on the man advantage was the defenseman’s second power-play goal this season; the blueliner is tied for second among Eastern Conference defensemen in power-play goals, and has added three assists on power-play goals as well. Valleau also logged significant ice time on Friday, helping the penalty kill remain a perfect 9-for-9 on this road trip.

SCORING FIRST GOAL WILL BE KEY: The Solar Bears face an opponent today that has scored the first goal of the game in an Eastern Conference-leading 10 matches; Orlando has earned points in every game in which it has scored first.

STREAKS:

  • Joshua Winquist – 5-game point streak (2g-6a)
  • Chris Crane – 2-game goal streak (2g)

MILESTONE TRACKER:

  • Mike Monfredo – needs 2 points for 150 career pro points
  • Chris Crane – needs 4 points for 150 career pro points
  • Joshua Winquist – needs 5 assists for 100 career pro assists; needs 5 points for 150 career pro points

AFFILIATE NOTES: The Toronto Marlies (12-4-0-0) got two power-play goals in the first period and held on for a 2-1 win over the Syracuse Crunch, and face Syracuse again this afternoon at 4 p.m. The Toronto Maple Leafs (14-7-0-0) blanked their opponent for the second consecutive game with a 6-0 throttling of the Montreal Canadiens last night, and resume play at home on Monday against Arizona.
