For the only time all season, the Generals have three home games in a three day stretch this week. The three games wrap up the Generals' season long five game homestand. For the second time in as many games, the Generals host the Richmond Renegades on Thursday at 7:00. On Friday night at 7:30, the Roanoke Express will visit the Greensboro Coliseum in the final meeting of the season series. The big night comes on Saturday at 7:30 against the Greenville Grrrowl. That game is "Turn Back the Clock Night". The Generals will wear replica jerseys of the first professional hockey team in Greensboro, the 1959 Greensboro Generals of the Eastern Hockey League. In addition, the number five jersey of ECHL Commissioner Emeritus Patrick Kelly will be retired in a pre-game ceremony. Kelly, one of the founders of the East Coast Hockey League and the person for whom the league championship trophy is named after, was a member of the 1959 Generals. Finally, the first 3,000 hot dogs sold at the game on Saturday night will only cost fifty cents. All games this week are at the Greensboro Coliseum and can be heard on Radio Disney, WCOG-1320AM. You can also now hear the games online by logging on to www.greensborogenerals.com.
2/26 GREENSBORO 5, READING 2 - After a scoreless first period, the Royals got on the board early in the second period for a 1-0 lead. The Generals took control of the game shortly after, netting four unanswered goals. Dmitri Markovsky tied the game midway through the second period, and Dennis Maxwell's first goal as a General put them in the lead for good minutes later. Chris Brassard scored the eventual game-winning goal in the first minute of the third period, with Jeff Zehr increasing the lead to 4-1 less than two minutes later. After a Reading goal cut the Generals lead to 4-2, Brassard's empty net goal sealed the victory. Frederic Henry was sensational in net for the Generals, stopping 36 of 38 shots on the night.
2/27 GREENSBORO 1, ATLANTIC CITY 5 - Trailing 2-0 midway through the second period, Jeff Zehr's second goal in as many nights cut the Generals deficit in half. However, the Boardwalk Bullies put the game away with three goals in the final nine minutes of the second period.
3/1 CHARLOTTE 4, GREENSBORO 3 (OT) - It appeared the Generals were going to run away with this game early on, but their lead vanished, and they had to settle for the tie. Greensboro jumped ahead with first period goals from Craig Stahl and Chris Brassard. Andrei Lupandin gave the Generals a commanding 3-0 edge six minutes into the second period, but it wasn't enough to put the Checkers away. Charlotte scored a pair of goals in the second period to cut the deficit to 3-2, then tied the game midway through the third to force overtime. The Checkers' Dave Duerden completed the Checkers comeback by scoring with only 22 seconds left in overtime for the victory.
3/2 RICHMOND 5, GREENSBORO 3 - The Generals grabbed a 1-0 lead in the first period on Leigh Dean's third goal of the season, but the Renegades gained momentum in the game by tying the score with six seconds remaining in the period. The momentum carried Richmond to the lead with two goals in the first 2:24 of the second period for a 3-1 advantage. The Generals battled back with goals from Chris Brassard and Dennis Maxwell moments later to tie the score at 3-3. However, the Renegades took the lead for good late in the second period, and added an insurance goal in the third period to ice it.
"Generals University" will be at Greenhill Elementary School in High Point on Monday, Oak Hill Elementary School in High Point on Thursday, and Florence Elementary School in High Point on Friday.

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.
