Solar Bears rally for 4-3 shootout win over Admirals

ORLANDO, Fla. – Joe Garreffa scored his first two goals of the season to rally the Orlando Solar Bears (9-5-1-0) from a 3-1 deficit, and Brad Barone shut the door to the tune of his second ECHL-best 50-save performance in the last two weeks to lift Orlando to a fourth straight victory, a 4-3 shootout win over the Norfolk Admirals (7-6-0-1), on Saturday night at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center.

Barone made 11 saves in overtime, including two breakaway stops, and Tristin Langan scored in the third round of the shootout to put Orlando ahead, before Barone made a game-winning glove save on Eric Williams to secure two points for the Solar Bears.
