MAGNIFYING THE MATCHUP
The longest road trip of the season for the Jackals concludes with the second, and final, meeting of the season against the Orlando Solar Bears. The Jackals won the first meeting of the year at First Arena, on October 30, in thrilling come from behind fashion. Orlando took a 3-1 lead into the third period, when former Solar Bear, Tyler Currier brought the Jackals within one, and Cason Hohmann tied the score to force overtime, where Colin Jacobs scored the game-winning goal, shorthanded. The Jackals lead the all-time series with Orlando, posting a 5-3-0 record in a very small sample size. Last season, the teams split the only two meetings of the season, both played at the Amway Center, in Orlando. This year, the Solar Bears have a record of 21-19-6, with 48 points, which places them four points behind the Jackals in the Eastern Conference. At the Amway Center, Orlando has a 9-12-1 mark, good for a conference-worst, 19 points at home.
- Jacob MacDonald leads the league with four shorthanded goals. MacDonald's shorthanded total has never been bested by a defenseman in league history.
