ORLANDO, Fla. – The Orlando Solar Bears (33-29-6-1) power play came alive in the final home game of the regular season, scoring on each of its first three chances with the man advantage, en route to a 6-2 victory over the Jacksonville Icemen (38-27-3-2) on Tuesday night at the AdventHealth Rink at Amway Center.

Cole Moberg scored twice to set a new career-high, including the opening goal with the power play midway through the first period.
