BLADES STREAK HALTED IN 3-2 LOSS VS. ORLANDO

ORLANDO, Fla. – Two third period goals weren’t enough for the Florida Everblades who fell to the Orlando Solar Bears 3-2, with 32 seconds left in the game. 

After two scoreless periods for the Everblades, rookie forward Robert Calisti scored his fourth goal of the season assisted by Ben Masella and Cam Darcy on the powerplay. Four minutes later, Lukas Kälble notched his first goal of the season, tying the game at two. Kälble’s goal was assisted by Xavier Cormier and Blake Winiecki. That makes four assists in two games for Cormier. 

Goalie Evan Fitzpatrick got his first start of the season and stopped 21 of 24 shots he faced. 

The blades went one for five on the powerplay and allowed one powerplay and one shorthanded goal. 

This loss breaks Florida’s four game win streak. The Blades are out on the road for three more games, the next being Thursday in Savannah, GA.
