Solar Bears match club record in 8-3 win over Everblades

ORLANDO, Fla. —  Tristin Langan (1g-3a) and Aaron Luchuk (2g-1a) led the way for the Orlando Solar Bears (31-22-5-1) as they matched a franchise record with eight goals scored in a single game on home ice en route to an 8-3 victory over the Florida Everblades (36-18-2-2) on Friday night at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center.

Orlando raced out a 3-0 lead in the first period, matching their largest output of the season in the opening frame, and added three additional goals in the second period and tacked on two more in the third. Langan matched his previous career-high for assists and points, while Luchuk snapped a three-game point drought, his longest of the season.

Clint Windsor made 40 saves for his 19th victory of the season, tying him for second in the league in goaltender wins.
