Barone turns in 50-save performance in 3-2 Solar Bears loss

ESTERO, Fla. – Despite a career-high 50 saves from goaltender Brad Barone, the Orlando Solar Bears (5-5-1-0) closed out their five-game road trip with a 3-2 loss to the Florida Everblades (7-3-1-1) on Wednesday night at Hertz Arena.

After falling behind 1-0 in the first period, Aaron Luchuk and Michael Brodzinski scored in the middle frame to give Orlando a 2-1 lead.

But Florida stormed back in the third period, out-shooting Orlando 25-7, getting a tying goal from Blake Winiecki and the eventual game-winning tally from Joe Pendenza with under four minutes to play.
