The Generals have a pair of home games this weekend, which both start at 7:30. On Friday night, the Greenville Grrrowl come to town for the second time in a week following Saturday's penalty-marred contest.

You can also now hear the games online by logging on to www.greensborogenerals.com.
3/7 RICHMOND 2, GREENSBORO 1 - The Generals got on the scoreboard just 2:16 into the game, when Alex Matviychuk swept in a rebound of a shot from newcomer Matt Dennehy. Little did they know it would be the only goal they would get all night. The Renegades offense came in a 35 second span in the first period to take a lead they would never relinquish.
3/8 ROANOKE 6, GREENSBORO 2 - After falling behind 1-0, Craig Stahl knotted the score for Greensboro midway through the first period. However, just 17 seconds later, the Express were back in front 2-1, and the Generals never caught up. Jeff Zehr scored the other Generals goal in the second period, which brought them within one at 3-2, but Roanoke would put the game away with three unanswered goals to round out the scoring.
3/9 GREENVILLE 5, GREENSBORO 2 - In a game featuring 196 total penalty minutes, including a league season high 135 from the Generals, Greensboro stayed close early, but couldn't complete the comeback. After Roger Trudeau scored once in the first period and again in the second for a 2-0 Grrrowl lead, Andrei Lupandin cut the deficit in half by converting a centering feed from Jeff Zehr. Greenville had a 3-1 advantage entering the third period when the Generals appeared to grab momentum, with Dion Lassu scoring just 14 seconds into the final frame to make the score 3-2. The momentum was quickly taken away, however, as the Grrrowl countered with another goal less than a minute later, followed up by another insurance tally for the final difference.
TURN BACK THE CLOCK NIGHT:
The Generals "Turn Back the Clock Night" on Saturday was a tremendous success. The Generals wore replica jerseys of the first professional hockey team in Greensboro, the 1959 Greensboro Generals of the Eastern Hockey League. They also retired the number 5 jersey of ECHL Commissioner Emeritus Patrick Kelly in a first intermission ceremony, making him the first person to be inducted into the Greensboro Generals Hall of Fame. The 1959 Generals jerseys are currently being auctioned off on their official team website, www.greensborogenerals.com. Minimum bid for a player game-worn jersey is $200.00. The auction closes at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, March 15.
"Generals University" will be at Lindley Elementary School in Greensboro on Monday and Tuesday, Moore Elementary School in Winston-Salem on Wednesday and Thursday, and Pilot Elementary School in Greensboro on Friday. "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.
The Generals coaches show The Front Line will air live from Parmesans' Great Italian Buffet at the corner of Pisgah Church Rd. and North Elm St. in Greensboro this Monday from 6:00 - 7:00. Generals' interim head coach Alex Godynyuk and Arley Johnson are the hosts of the program. Everyone is encouraged join in on the fun.
