Orlando, FL- Unable to click on the power-play (0-for-6), the Kalamazoo Wings (7-7-0-0) dropped their second straight to the Orlando Solar Bears (8-5-2-1) and third straight on the road with a 2-1 setback at the Amway Center Sunday afternoon.
Striking on their lone power-play chance of the opening period, Oliver Fortier (7th) gave the Solar Bears a 1-0 advantage, as he poked a free puck past Joel Martin with 51.4 remaining in the period. Fortier’s goal was his team-leading fifth on the power-play.
Fortier (8th) continued his scoring dominance against the K-Wings in the second period, as the forward netted his second goal of the afternoon and his fourth in two games against Kalamazoo with a rebound marker midway in the stanza.
Cutting the deficit in a half early in the third period was Dustin Cloutier, who netted his third-goal of the season on a centering pass from Steven Anthony.
Orlando’s Hannu Toivonen (1-0-0-0) made 38 saves in the victory, while Martin (5-5-0-0) turned aside 24 in defeat.
