CINCINNATI -

The Solar Bears traveled to Cincinnati Wednesday night to take on the Cyclones in game 3 of the best-of-seven series of the Eastern Conference Quarterfinals.

The Solar Bears needed a win Wednesday night to keep pace from falling into the near disastrous hole of 3-0.

Tied 1-1 late in the third period, Cyclones forward Byron Froese scored the game-winning goal for the Cyclones as he shot it passed Solar Bears goaltender Maxime Clermont.

The Solar Bears now have to win or their 2014 playoff run is done. The next game in this series is Friday at 7:30 p.m. in Cincinnati.
