Road trip ends for Solar Bears with 3-2 loss to Everblades

ESTERO, Fla. – Tristin Langan scored his 54th career ECHL goal with the Orlando Solar Bears (29-27-4-0) to become the team’s career goal-scoring leader, but Dylan Vander Esch broke a 2-2 tie in the third period for the Florida Everblades (43-17-5-4) to deal Orlando its fifth consecutive loss in a 3-2 decision on Saturday night at Hertz Arena.

Langan netted his history-making goal midway through the first period as the Solar Bears had completed killing a penalty, as he poked the puck out of the defensive zone to himself for a breakaway and beat Cam Johnson with a shot from the hash-marks. The goal pushed him past Joe Perry (2016-18) for sole possession of the club goal-scoring mark.

After Florida took a 2-1 lead into the second intermission, Hunter Fejes tied the game when he batted a loose puck through the slot past Johsnon, but Vander Esch scored on the ensuing shift to put the Everblades ahead for good.
