EVERBLADES POWER PLAY LEADS WAY TO 5-4 WIN OVER ORLANDO

ESTERO, Fla. – The Florida Everblades potted two power play goals to pick up a 5-4 win over the Orlando Solar Bears at Hertz Arena Wednesday night.

Jake Smith and Cam Morrison got the goals on the man advantage, while Nick Lappin, Brandon Hickey, and Blake Winiecki also found the back of the net. 

Hertz Arena has been a safe haven for Florida this year – the Everblades are 8-1 at home this year.

This win is Florida’s first victory over Orlando this year. Florida has now won back-to-back games where they have given up the first goal.

Cam Johnson got his fifth straight win, stopping 29 of 33 shots he faced for the victory.
