Brodzinski is also currently tied with Trevor Olson and Mathieu Foget for the team scoring lead against the Everblades this season with 10 points (2g-8a) in 10 games. His eight assists also leads Orlando against Florida.

WINDSOR TO START AGAIN: After turning in a 36-save performance against Atlanta on Thursday, Clint Windsor will once again get the nod in between the pipes tonight for the Solar Bears.
