On Sunday afternoon at 3:00, the Generals play in their second home, the LJVM Coliseum Annex in Winston-Salem, as they battle the northeast division leading Trenton Titans.

1/4 ATLANTIC CITY 5, GREENSBORO 1 - The Generals never got off the ground in this game, falling behind 2-0 after one period, and allowing two more goals just 20 seconds apart in the second period. Craig Stahl scored the only Greensboro goal, with assists going to Dennis Maxwell and Paul Strand. For Maxwell, it was his first point in his first game as a General after being acquired earlier in the week from the Peoria Rivermen.
1/5 CHARLOTTE 1, GREENSBORO 2 (OT) - The Generals put together their best defensive effort in weeks to record a dramatic overtime victory over their in-state rivals. Greensboro took the lead on a Chris Bell goal in the second period, but the Checkers responded just three minutes later to tie the score, ultimately sending the game to overtime. The Generals dominated overtime, outshooting the Checkers 7-0 in the extra session. Jeff Zehr was the hero for Greensboro, scoring on a slap shot in the slot at 3:36 of overtime for the game winning goal. Frederic Henry was spectacular in net for the Generals, earning the victory by saving 33 of 34 shots for the night.
