Two-point nights from Langan, Luchuk not enough in 3-2 loss

ESTERO, Fla. — Tristin Langan and Aaron Luchuk each recorded a goal and an assist, but the Orlando Solar Bears (11-9-1-0) dropped a 3-2 decision the Florida Everblades (17-5-0-1) in their first of three meetings this week on Wednesday Night at Hertz Arena.

Langan opened the scoring at 6:41 of the first period when Luchuk sprang the second-year pro for a breakaway, and Langan beat Devin Cooley for his fourth of the season.

The Everblades then reeled off three straight goals from Stefan LeBlanc, Luke Nogard and Michael Huntebrinker to put Orlando in a two-goal hole midway through the second period, but Langan connected with Luchuk at 15:13 of the second frame for Luchuk’s fifth of the season.

Clint Windsor went 30-for-33 in the loss, and earned an assist on Langan’s goal; Cooley earned the win with 26 stops on 28 shots against.
