TONIGHT: The Orlando Solar Bears (32-21-4-0) play their final match of their five-game regular season series with the Newfoundland Growlers (39-17-4-0). Each team has two wins through four games following Orlando's 4-2 victory on Saturday.
BOURKE LEADS ORLANDO AGAINST NEWFOUNDLAND: Troy Bourke's three assists in Saturday's win over the Growlers gave the forward his eighth multi-point game of the season. That ties the forward with Jonne Tammela with the most multi-point games this season for Orlando. He leads the Solar Bears with four points (0g-4a) against the Growlers in the regular season series. Bourke also leads Orlando in the month of March with seven points (1g-6a) in four games.
DONAGHEY APPROACHING 50 CAREER POINTS: Solar Bears defenseman Cody Donaghey is currently 15th in scoring among ECHL blueliners with 32 points (12g-20a) in 50 games. His 32 points have doubled his offensive production as a rookie last season with the Brampton Beast and Belleville Senators, and currently sits at 48 points (21g-27a) in 105 career pro games.
INGRAM GOES AGAIN: Goaltender Connor Ingram will get his third straight start in as many days since being reassigned to the Solar Bears prior to this weekend. The second-year netminder made 25 saves for his first victory in a Solar Bears uniform on Saturday, and has come up with 62 total saves through two appearances.
