Killins, Nazarian foil Solar Bears in 6-3 loss to Icemen

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. —  Despite battling back from 2-0 and 3-2 deficits in the second period, the Orlando Solar Bears (33-25-5-1) came up empty-handed in a 6-3 loss, as Ryker Killins scored the eventual game-winning goal early in the third, and Ara Nazarian added two empty-net tallies to his goal in the second period to complete a hat trick for the Jacksonville Icemen (33-27-3-3) on Wednesday night at VyStar Veterans Memorial Arena.
