1/26 TOLEDO 3, GREENSBORO 7 - The three trades that Generals head coach Graeme Townshend pulled off over the all-star break seemed to create a new attitude for the Generals. Greensboro's Chris Bell started the scoring in what they call the most exciting play in hockey—a penalty shot. Just 25 seconds later, Chris Brassard upped the advantage to 2-0, a lead the Generals held into the second period. After the Storm cut the gap to 2-1, David Whitworth knocked in a rebound of his own shot to regain a two-goal lead. Again Toledo cut the Generals lead in half, but newcomer James Desmarais notched a power play tally, and Jeff Zehr scored minutes later to give the Generals a commanding 5-2 lead after two periods. Vlad Serov and Brasard scored third period goals to put the game on ice. Frederic Henry, on the injured list since January 8, was sharp in net to earn the victory, saving 32 of 35 shots on the night. Brassard led the offense with two goals and an assist, with Bell and Desmarais also scoring three points (1g, 2a) on the night.
