RECAP: Gladiators Pull Away from Solar Bears in Home Win

First Star: Eric Neiley (ATL) - two goals

Second Star: Sanghoon Shin (ATL) - goal

Third Star: Cody Sylvester (ATL) - two assists

Orlando struck first in the first period when Michael Brodzinski snuck a shot through traffic and converted on the power play (6:31).

Later in the first, Eric Neiley built on his three-point night last Saturday when he knocked in a rebound to tie the game at 1-1 (11:31). Mike Pelech and Cody Sylvester pushed the puck to the front of the net, and Neiley was able to bag his seventh goal of the season after it popped off of Orlando goaltender Brad Barone's right pad.

Entering tonight, the Gladiators were 0-for-their-last-14 on the power play through their last four games. Sanghoon Shin kicked the Atlanta specialty unit into gear when he scored his fourth goal of the season after another loose rebound (19:01).

Atlanta closed out the game with three empty-net goals late in the third period. The Glads had not scored an empty-netter this season until Gabe Guertler (18:35), Eric Neiley (18:59), and Michael Turner (19:59) all cashed in. Chris Ordoobadi tipped in a goal for Orlando late in regulation for the Solar Bears' second goal (19:25).

Tyler Parks stopped 28 of 30 shots for Atlanta to pick up his seventh win of the season.

The Gladiators and Solar Bears meet again Saturday night at 7:00 in Duluth.
