2/12 GREENSBORO 2, ROANOKE 1 - The Generals allowed a first period goal to fall behind 1-0, but it would be all that goaltender Frederic Henry would let by him. Sal Manganaro tied the game before the break, and Chris Brassard put the Generals ahead to stay in the second period. Henry made 26 saves on the night to earn the victory.
2/13 PEE DEE 3, GREENSBORO 2 (OT) - Greensboro found themselves in a 2-0 hole in the first period, but Andre Racicot, making his Generals debut, held the Pride at bay from there. The Generals David Whitworth scored both Generals goals, one in the second period, and another midway through the third period to even the score. However, a Greensboro penalty in overtime was too much to overcome, as Allan Sirois netted the game-winner, forcing the Generals to be content with a tie.
2/15 GREENSBORO 1, TRENTON 8 - Chris Brassard scored the only Generals goal. There's nothing more to say about this game.
2/16 GREENSBORO 2, ROANOKE 4 - The Generals were shorthanded for the majority of the first period, and it cost them a 2-0 deficit. The Express lead went to 3-0 by the end of the second period before the Generals made a game of it. David Whitworth put the Generals on the board to pull Greensboro to 3-1, but a bad bounce off the boards led directly to an open net goal for Roanoke to put the game away. Alex Matvichuk scored his first goal as a General to round out the scoring.
2/17 MACON 3, GREENSBORO 4 (OT) - This game was a defensive struggle through two periods, as the Whoopee held only a 1-0 advantage entering the third period. Then the Generals exploded. Sal Manganaro tied the game at the 7:16 mark of the third period, and less than a minute later Greensboro found themselves with a 2-1 lead on an Andrei Lupandin score. Craig Stahl made it three unanswered goals for the Generals for a 3-1 lead, but the momentum turned back in Macon's favor. The Whoopee notched two goals in the final five minutes of regulation to force overtime. Chris Bell won the game for the Generals by tapping home a rebound of a Rob Sandrock slap shot at the 1:37 mark of overtime.
