Road win streak ends in 3-1 loss to Mariners

PORTLAND, Maine – Tyler Bird scored for the second consecutive game and Amir Miftakhov made 34 saves, but the Orlando Solar Bears (19-14-2-0) fell to the Maine Mariners (14-14-3-1) by a 3-1 score on Saturday night at Cross Insurance Arena. The loss brought an end to Orlando’s five-game road winning streak.
