Orlando Solar Bears 0 @ Gwinnett Gladiators 1
F B.J. Crombeen , ORL: Did not play
Season totals: 2 GP, 0-0-0, E, 2 PIM
Hannu Toivonen stopped 25 of 26 for Orlando but Mike Lee was perfect in net with 22 saves for Gwinnett, allowing the Gladiators to edge past the Solar Bears Thanksgiving night. Gwinnett defenseman Cody Brookwell had the game's lone goal, which he scored early in the first period when he found a shooting lane and fired a shot that made it through traffic and into the net. Locked-out Lightning forward B.J. Crombeen, who signed with Orlando last week, hasn't played since Sunday's home game against Kalamazoo. Orlando (8-7-3, 19 PTS) and league powerhouse Gwinnett (13-4-1, 27 PTS), which currently enjoys a four-point lead at the top of the South division, play the tail end of a back-to-back Friday night.
UPDATE: Crombeen was released from his tryout contract with the Solar Bears.
