Solar Bears win streak snapped in 2-1 loss to Everblades

ORLANDO, Fla. – Tyler Bird scored the lone goal for the home team as the Orlando Solar Bears (23-17-3-0) saw their three-game win streak come to an end following a 2-1 loss to the Florida Everblades (24-15-3-3) on Saturday night at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center. Orlando and Florida each have four wins through eight games in the regular season series.

John McCarron opened the scoring for the visitors with his league-leading fifth shorthanded goal of the season late in the first period, elevating a shot over the shoulder of Brad Barone at the left post to put the visitors ahead 1-0.

Bird tied the score for Orlando early in the second period when Fabrizio Ricci poked the puck ahead to Bird between the benches, and the forward sped up the right wing before beating Cam Johnson through the legs.

McCarron put Florida ahead with the game-winning tally midway through the second period, as the Everblades capitalized on a Solar Bears turnover in the defensive zone.
