TONIGHT: The Orlando Solar Bears (5-2) continue the 2019 Playoffs, presented by XYMOPrint, as they host Game 3 of the South Division Finals against the Florida Everblades (5-3). The teams split the opening pair of games at Hertz Arena, with both contests being decided in overtime.
BOURKE DRIVING SUCCESS FOR SOLAR BEARS: Saturday's 3-2 overtime loss to Florida in Game 2 marked only the second time forward Troy Bourke had been held without a point. The forward has been instrumental in helping guide the Solar Bears to the second round, as the team is 5-0 in the postseason when he made his way onto the scoresheet.
TAMMELA A SHOOTING MACHINE: Forward Jonne Tammela has been piling up the shots on goal since his reassignment from the Syracuse Crunch in the opening round. He is averaging four shots per game through six postseason contests, and leads Orlando in the second round with nine shots on goal through the first two games of the series.
PENALTY KILL REMAINS SOURCE OF STRENGTH: The Solar Bears currently sit third in the ECHL playoffs on the penalty kill, going 28-for-32 (87.5%).
