TONIGHT: The Orlando Solar Bears (25-18-3-0) visit the Florida Everblades (33-11-5-0) for the sixth of 12 total meetings this season. Orlando owns a 3-1-1-0 record against Florida through the first five games of the regular season series. The Solar Bears are 1-0-1-0 at Hertz Arena this season.

BALANCE VS. TOP-HEAVY: In head-to-head competition this season against the Everblades, the Solar Bears have spread their offense throughout their lineup. While Mitch Hults has the team lead with five points (3g-2a) in five games, six players on the active roster have recorded four points against Florida this season. Conversely, the Everblades have funneled most of their offense against Orlando through John McCarron (eight points) and Justin Auger (five points), who are two of the four skaters for the Everblades with at least four points against Orlando this season.

DONAGHEY TO PLAY AT FORWARD: With a shortage of healthy forwards on the active roster and a surplus of defensemen, blueliner Cody Donaghey will dress at forward tonight for the Solar Bears. The second-year pro previously played at forward during his rookie season with the Brampton Beast. Donaghey currently has four points (2g-2a) through five games against the Everblades this season.

OUELLETTE COMING OFF STELLAR WEEK: After going 3-0-0 with a 1.59 goals-against average and save percentage of .944 last week and earning ECHL Goalie of the Week honors, Martin Ouellette will get another start tonight against Florida. Ouellette is 3-1-0 against the Everblades this season with a 2.50 goals-against average and a .915 save percentage. His last outing against Florida was the team's 4-3 overtime win at home on Dec. 21, in which he turned aside 25 shots.
