Michael Brodzinski opened the scoring for Orlando after Brady Shaw rolled the puck through the slot back to the blue line, and the Solar Bears defender made his way toward the left circle before firing a wrist shot that deflected off the crossbar and past Mikhail Berdin at 10:32 for Brodzinski's first of the season.

Hunter Fejes made it 2-0 when he slammed in a cross-ice pass from Mike Monfredo at 19:32. Zach Todd, making his season debut for Orlando, received credit for the secondary assist.
