The Solar Bears host Greenville for the second straight game between the two sides after the Road Warriors completed a dramatic comeback win over Orlando on Wednesday night. The Solar Bears battled back from a 2-1 deficit at the start of the third period on Wednesday to take a 3-2 lead into the final seconds of the game. With just 1.1 seconds left in the contest, Greenville used a 3-on-1 rush to knock the puck into the back of the net and force overtime with the score tied a 3-3. The game eventually moved into a shootout, where the final Road Warriors shooter snapped a 1-1 tie to give Greenville a 4-3 shootout win. It was the second time in two home games against Greenville that the Road Warriors have tied the game in the final seconds, as they scored with 11 seconds left on October 28 to force overtime as well. Orlando is now 1-2-0-2 against Greenville this season.

Road Warriors Notes:
The Orlando Solar Bears will unveil the 2001 Turner Cup Championship Banner tomorrow night, February 2. The pregame ceremony will begin promptly at 7:00 p.m. and fans are encouraged to be in their seats early. The Turner Cup will be in the building, along with representatives from the Hockey Hall of Fame. Mayor Buddy Dyer will make a special presentation, and special guests will be in attendance.
The Solar Bears will wear special throwback jerseys that will be auctioned off after the game, with the winning bidders getting an opportunity to meet their player. Orlando won the Turner Cup on May 26, 2001, and never had a chance to raise the banner as the IHL folded immediately following that season.
The Solar Bears face Greenville again for a 7:00 p.m. contest tonight and then will raise the 2001 Turner Cup Championship Banner tomorrow, February 2, at 7:00 p.m. against the Trenton Titans. Good seats still available, visit www.OrlandoSolarBearsHockey.com.
