2/19 - GREENSBORO 1, CHARLOTTE 7 - The Generals stayed within reach of the Checkers for most of the night, but it fell apart in the third period, as they allowed a season-high five goals. Chris Bell scored the only Generals goal of the night.

2/22 - CHARLOTTE 3, GREENSBORO 2 (SO) - In the debut of Alex Godynyuk as the team’s interim head coach, the Generals put in a solid effort, but it still wasn’t enough to beat the Checkers. Trailing 1-0 in the second period, Chris Bell tied the score by tapping home a centering feed from Chris Brassard. The Generals fell behind 2-1 less than a minute into the third period, but James Desmarais erased the deficit by slapping home a one-timer in the slot to even the score with ten minutes remaining. The Generals were forced to be content with a tie, however, as they lost the shootout 3-1, with newcomer Jeff Bes notching the only shootout goal.

2/23 - COLUMBUS 3, GREENSBORO 1 - This game appeared to be headed toward a high-scoring night for both clubs, but it quickly turned into a defensive struggle. The Cottonmouths took a 1-0 lead just 24 seconds into the contest, but Chris Brassard knotted the score at 1-1 just over two minutes later with his 20th goal of the season. From there, the only player who found the net was the Cottonmouths’ Sean McAslan, who gave them the lead for good midway through the second period, and added an insurance tally with three seconds remaining in the second.
