Langan, Fucale lead Solar Bears to 3-2 win over Icemen

ORLANDO, Fla. – Tristin Langan recorded a three-point night and Zachary Fucale turned aside 40 shots to lead the Orlando Solar Bears (19-16-5-1) to a 3-2 victory over the Jacksonville Icemen (13-22-4-1) on Monday night at the Jewett Orthopaedic Rink at Amway Center, extending Orlando’s win streak to a season-high four games.

Box Score

The Icemen started netminder Adam Carlson, but just seven seconds into the game Carlson was assessed a game misconduct for shooting the puck into the spectator area during a stoppage; Jacksonville was forced to replace Carlson with Ben Halford.

Langan factored into all three goals for the Solar Bears, tying the score at 1-1 after Jacksonville’s Alexis D’Aoust put the visitors on the board first at 11:04 of the first period. Langan tallied his 12th of the season at 14:15 when Cody Donaghey received a pass at the right circle from Michael Brodzinski and fed the puck into the crease for Langan to redirect past Halford.

The rookie forward then set up the go-ahead goal at 2:44 of the second period, when he fed the puck into the slot and Jake Coughler redirected the pass behind Halford for his eighth of the season; Tyler Bird received the secondary assist.

Langan capped his three-point outing at 3:28 of the third period when he raced up the left side and flipped a pass to the middle of the ice for a streaking Coughler, who deposited his second of the night in the net to make it 3-1; Brodzinski picked up his second assist of the evening with the secondary helper.

Although Chase Lang scored at 10:21, Fucale turned in a masterful performance– including a highlight-reel glove save on Craig Martin – making 14 stops in the final frame to foil the comeback attempt by the Icemen.

Fucale picked up his eighth win of the year with the victory; Halford took the loss with 33 stops on 36 shots against.
