Langan salvages point for Solar Bears in 3-2 OT loss to Swamp Rabbits

ORLANDO, Fla. – Tristin Langan’s goal in the third period moved him into first place on the team’s all-time scoring list with his 131st point, but the Orlando Solar Bears (25-21-4-0) fell to the Greenville Swamp Rabbits (18-22-4-3) in overtime by a 3-2 score on Tuesday afternoon at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center.

After Max Cajkovic put Orlando up 1-0 less than five minutes into the first period, the Swamp Rabbits scored a power-play goal late in the frame to tie the score, then take a 2-1 lead in the second off a goal from Brett Kemp.

Langan leveled the score midway through the third period when he received a pass from Nolan Valleau in the slot and beat Evan Fitzpatrick upstairs for his 10th of the season.

Both Fitzpatrick and Brad Barone traded saves in overtime, but the Swamp Rabbits won the game when Kemp knocked Nikita Pavlychev’s rebound past Barone five and a half minutes into the extra frame.
