SOLAR BEARS HAND INDY SECOND LOSS OF WEEKEND SERIES

INDIANAPOLIS - Resuming Saturday’s postponed game on Monday, the Indy Fuel hosted the Orlando Solar Bears for the final game of a three-game series. The Solar Bears started the game with a 2-0 lead before adding on two more in the second period and one in the third. Indy would score in the final minutes but they would eventually fall 5-1 on Monday night. 

Resuming the game with five minutes left in the first period, Indy would give up a handful of shots before the period ended, sending the Solar Bears into the locker room leading 2-0.

The Fuel would start the second killing off a long 5-on-3 penalty where Orlando would put several shots on Dan Bakala. Taking advantage of a slashing penalty on Josh Dickinson, Orlando’s power play moved the puck around until Aaron Luchuk got open and beat Bakala with a one-timer. The Solar Bears would add their fourth goal of the game when Karlis Cukste threw a puck on net from the point and Fabrizio Ricci deflected it past Bakala. 

Indy would have an early chance on the power play in the third period but Michael Lackey and the Solar Bears penalty kill would hold them off. Indy’s Alex Rauter would score in the final minutes of the game but a power-play goal by Tristin Langan gave Orlando a 5-1 win on Monday.
