Icemen shut out in Orlando rematch

Solar Bears 3, Icemen 0

 

Turning point: Orlando left wing Joshua Winquist broke a scoreless tie in the second period and Jacksonville failed to beat goaltender Mackenzie Skapski as the Icemen lost Saturday at Veterans Memorial Arena.

Three stars: 1. Skapski, Orlando (22 saves); 2. Martins Dzierkals, Orlando (one goal); 3. Winquist, Orlando (one goal).

Penalty box: Though the teams were far below Friday night’s fight-fest in which 109 penalty minutes were assessed, Icemen captain Garet Hunt fought with Orlando’s Sean Zimmerman just 14 seconds into the game and the Solar Bears’ Sam Jardine received a game misconduct after a major cross-check.

Around the rink: Before the game, leading Icemen scorer Jimmy Lodge was called up to the American Hockey League’s Manitoba Moose after scoring 10 goals and 18 assists for Jacksonville. … The Icemen took only 22 shots in the game. … Dzierkals and Chris Crane scored insurance goals for Orlando.

Up next: The teams travel to Orlando to complete their three-game series Sunday.
