The Generals don't play at home again until hosting the Pee Dee Pride on Wednesday, February 12.
2/1 RICHMOND 3, GREENSBORO 2 (SO) - The Generals peppered the Richmond net to the tune of 42 shots, but it wasn't enough to earn the victory. Greensboro gave up a shorthanded goal early in the game, but James Desmarais countered on the same power play to even the score at 1-1. The Renegades regained the lead before the first period was over, but goaltender Frederic Henry denied them any further offense. The Generals tied the game midway through the second period on a Vlad Serov breakaway goal, but it was only enough to salvage a point, as the Renegades outscored Greensboro 2-0 in the shootout.
2/2 ATLANTIC CITY 7, GREENSBORO 4 - The Generals came out of the gate flying offensively, but they couldn't cash in on their numerous opportunities. Despite posting 24 shots on goal in the first period, Greensboro found themselves down 3-1 going into the break, with Chris Brassard erasing a three goal deficit with a goal late in the frame. The Boardwalk Bullies put the game away in the second period, notching three goals just 1:38 apart for a commanding 6-1 advantage, chasing Frederic Henry in the process. The Generals made a valiant effort to come back, getting a shorthanded tally from Chris Bell in the second period and power play goals from Leigh Dean and Craig Stahl in the third, but the big deficit was too much to overcome.
"Generals University" is in session every day this week. "Generals University" will be at Brightwood Elementary School in Greensboro on Monday, Union Cross Elementary School in Kernersville on Tuesday and Wednesday, Pilot Elementary School in Greensboro on Thursday, and South Mebane Elementary School in Mebane on Friday.
