RECORD FOR WEEK: 1-1-0
SEASON RECORD: 16-25-5
The Generals have currently played the fewest games in the East Coast Hockey League at 46. That will change this week. Greensboro has a grueling five game week ahead of them, with three of them on the road. The Generals visit the Roanoke Express Tuesday night at 7:00, then return home to battle the Pee Dee Pride on Wednesday at 7:00. Thursday is the only day the Generals don't play, but they'll take an eight hour bus trip to Trenton instead to face the Titans on Friday night at 7:35. From there, it's back to Roanoke for a 7:30 contest on Saturday night. The Generals wrap the week up with a Sunday afternoon contest against the Macon Whoopee at 3:00 at the Greensboro Coliseum. All games can be heard on Radio Disney, WCOG-1320AM. You can also now hear the games online by logging on to www.greensborogenerals.com.
2/6 GREENSBORO 2, CHARLOTTE 4 - The Generals found themselves down 3-0 midway through the second period, but they made a comeback when it was least expected. Chris Bell and Chris Brassard both scored shorthanded to make the score 3-2, giving the Generals momentum heading into the third period. They could not sustain the pressure, however, as the Checkers notched an insurance tally and clamped down defensively to hold Greeensboro at bay.
2/8 GREENSBORO 4, MACON 3 - This game was not nearly as close as the score would indicate. The Generals' David Whitworth notched a power play goal for a 1-0 edge entering the second period. After the Whoopee tied the game 1-1, Whitworth struck again to put the Generals ahead to stay. The rest of the Greensboro offense was supplied by former Whoopee Chris Brassard. He padded the lead to 3-1 in the second period, then notched a power play goal early in the third period for a commanding 4-1 advantage. The game stayed that way until the final 90 seconds, when Macon scored twice to make things interesting. Frederic Henry earned the victory in net, with a sparkling 43 save effort.
"Generals University" is in session every day this week. "Generals University" will be at Brightwood Elementary School in Greensboro on Monday, Gibsonville Elementary School in Gibsonville on Tuesday, Oak View Elementary School in High Point on Wednesday, and Claxton Elementary School in Greensboro on Thursday and Friday. "Generals University" is being held every school day but one in the month of February. "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 7,000 children in the Piedmont. "Generals University" is done in conjunction with 1320 AM Radio Disney's "Diggin' the Differences" program.
VLAD SEROV OLYMPIC UPDATE:
Generals left wing Vlad Serov played in his first Olympic Hockey game on Saturday afternoon, as his native Ukraine fell to Belarus 1-0. Serov and the Ukraine battle Switzerland on Monday night at 6:00 EST, and France on Wednesday night at 9:00 EST. If Ukraine does not win both games, they will also play on Thursday at a time to be determined. Both games are scheduled to be on CNBC.
