It was 3-0 before Florida finally got on the board nearing the midpoint of the second period but division-rival Orlando tacked on a two more goals in the final frame to complete a lopsided road victory in the first of what will be five games played between the division-rivals at the end of next weekend. Mathew Sisca (2 G, 2 A)led the way offensively for the Solar Bears and goalie John Curry managed to turn aside thirty shots to earn his tenth win of the season. John Muse (24/29) made his seventh-straight start in net and David Rutherford scored the lone goal for the Everblades. Alex Hutchings, who produced at just over a point-per-game clip in November, is still scoreless since returning from extended absence, upon which he has played in four matches. Charles Landry is also struggling to contribute offensively; he hasn't registered a point in the seven games he's played since November 23rd when he tallied an assist against Colorado. Dan Milan and Maxime Langelier-Parent, still recovering from an injury sustained early in the season, were inactive. Florida (13-10-5, 31 PTS) and Orlando (11-14-4, 26 PTS) will clash again Friday night.
