Orlando spoiled the Icemen’s playoffs hopes on Tuesday, and the Icemen will be looking to do some spoiling of their own this evening. A regulation win by Jacksonville tonight would eliminate Orlando from playoff contention. If Orlando earns a point tonight, they would also need Jacksonville to defeat South Carolina in North Charleston on Saturday.
