RECORD FOR WEEK: 1-2-0
SEASON RECORD: 14-23-4
NORTHEAST DIV. RANK: 7TH
The week starts with the ECHL ALL-Star Game, which is being held in Trenton, New Jersey on Tuesday at 7:30. The Generals will be represented by defenseman Andrei Lupandin, who was recently called up to the American Hockey League’s Cleveland Barons. The Generals not only have just one game this week, they only have one game for the rest of the month. The Generals only action between now and February comes this Saturday night at 7:30, as they host the Toledo Storm at the LJVM Coliseum Annex in Winston-Salem. The game marks the only time all season the two teams will square off. All games can be heard on Radio Disney, WCOG-1320AM.
1/16 GREENSBORO 3, READING 10 - There’s not much to say about this contest. The Generals goals were scored by Chris Bell, Andrei Lupandin, and Roger Holeczy, who was playing in his first game as a General.
1/18 GREENSBORO 1, TRENTON 5 - After a scoreless first period, the Titans took control of the game with a pair of second period scores. The Generals cut the deficit to 2-1 early in the third period, with Craig Stahl converting a feed from Paul Strand. However, the Titans almost immediately regained their two goal edge, then pulled away with two late goals to coast to victory.
1/19 GREENSBORO 5, TRENTON 4 (SO) - The Generals snapped their six game losing streak in dramatic fashion in their final game before the All-Star break. Chris Brassard gave Greensboro a 1-0 edge midway through the first period, but it would turn out to be the only lead the Generals would have in regulation play. Trenton tied the game before the end of the first period, then took the lead midway into the second period. Vlad Serov tied the game for the Generals with the team’s second power play tally of the night, only to have Trenton regain the lead at 3-2 in the final minute of the second period. The Generals again knotted the score early in the third period with Paul Strand redirecting a Jeff Zehr shot. However, Greensboro again fell behind when the Titans scored a power play goal with less than five minutes remaining, setting the stage for the exciting finish. The Generals tied the game with only 54 seconds left as Jeff Zehr jammed home a loose puck in the crease, then won the game in the seventh round of the shootout with Sal Manganaro netting the game-winner.
"Generals University" has four sessions this week, with Monday off for Martin Luther King Day. "Generals University" will only visit two different schools this week, going to Union Cross Elementary School in Kernersville on Tuesday and Wednesday, and Nathanael Greene Elementary School in Liberty on Thursday and Friday. "Generals University" is being held every school day in the month of January. "Generals University" has been designed by the Generals to teach children in third and fourth grade about diversity in sports. There are now over 80 "Generals University" appearances scheduled during the season to more than 300 different classrooms, which should reach over 6,000 children in the Piedmont. "Generals University" is done in conjunction with 1320 AM Radio Disney’s "Diggin’ the Differences" program.
In addition to "Generals University", several Generals players will also pay a visit to Brenner’s Childrens Hospital in Winston-Salem on Thursday afternoon to deliver teddy bears to children staying there.
The Greensboro Generals coaches show airs this Monday night on Big Radio 1470AM from 6:00 - 7:00 at Parmesans’ Great Italian Buffet at the corner of Pisgah Church Rd. and North Elm St. in Greensboro. With head coach Graeme Townshend being at the All-Star Game, Generals broadcaster Arley Johnson will be joined by right wing Sal Manganaro instead, along with members of the Greensboro Midget A hockey team, who just won their regional championship this weekend. Everyone is encouraged to attend and share the fun.
