JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – On Thursday and Friday nights the Jacksonville Iceman played back-to-back home games against the Orlando Solar Bears. In a close-fought battle on Thursday night’s game, the Solar Bears took a 4-3 victory over the Icemen.
Friday night’s game was a very different story. An Icemen goal near the beginning and the end of the first period put Jacksonville up by two. A scoreless second period led to an action-packed third period by the Icemen, who scored three more goals including a short-handed goal by Wacey Rabbit. The Solar Bears were clearly not happy, which led to a few scuffles between the two teams. Jacksonville outshot Orlando 37-19 in a dominating game by the Icemen. This also gave goaltender Tanner Jaillet his first professional career shutout, with the 5-0 victory by the Icemen.
