FOR SECOND STRAIGHT GAME
Solar Bears Head West for Next Three Games
After neither side scored in the first period, the Gladiators had a great chance to break a scoreless tie late in the second frame. A five-minute major for boarding was issued to LW Brett Lyon, partially offset by a two-minute roughing call to Gladiators F Maxime Villmaire. The Solar Bears were able to put together a strong penalty-killing effort and kept the score 0-0 heading into the third.
A power play midway through the final frame would help Gwinnett score the deciding goal. F Alex Belzile had a cross-crease pass bounce right back onto his stick and tipped it just over the outstretched pad of G Darcy Kuemper to knock in the game-winning goal with 8:35 left to play.
Three Stars: 1. A. Belzile (GWT); 2. L. Domingue (GWT); 3. D. Kuemper (ORL)
