TONIGHT: The Orlando Solar Bears (13-14-4-1) face the Norfolk Admirals (10-22-4-0) for the third meeting of 10 total games this season. The Solar Bears are 0-2-0-0 against Norfolk this season, but since Orlando's previous encounter with the Admirals on Nov. 26, the Solar Bears have gone 8-6-1-0.

LANGAN LEAD THE WAY AGAINST ADMIRALS: Tristin Langan is Orlando's leading scorer against the Admirals, with three points (1g-2a) in two games.

COUGHLER LOOKING TO BUILD OFF SOLID RETURN: After missing the final five games of December, Jake Coughler made his return to the lineup on Sunday against Brampton. Playing on a line with Alexey Lipanov and Tristin Langan, Coughler matched his season-high with five shots on goal and generated his second multi-point game of the season with a goal and an assist.

THREE IS KEY: In each of Orlando's two previous outings against Norfolk, the Solar Bears only managed to find the back of the net twice. The Solar Bears' record is vastly improved when the team scores at least three times; the team is 11-2-0-0 when hitting that plateau.

SCOUTING THE OPPONENT: The Admirals are in the midst of a five-game winless streak (0-4-1-0), most recently dropping a 3-2 overtime decision last Saturday in Atlanta.
