3/22 GREENSBORO 0, CINCINNATI 5 Greensboro allowed three early goals to the Cyclones to set the tone, as they were shut out for only the second time all season.
3/23 GREENSBORO 4, RICHMOND 1 The Generals pounded the Renegades for 19 shots on net in the first period, getting all the goals they would need from Chris Brassard and Chris Bell for a 2-0 lead. The Renegades made things interesting with a power play goal early in the third period to cut the deficit to 2-1, but Frederic Henry would not be denied the victory in this game. He saved 35 of 36 shots on the evening, including several in the third period to keep Greensboro in the lead. The Generals wouldn't get their insurance goals until the final 90 seconds of the contest, with Jeff Zehr giving them some breathing room for a 3-1 lead, and Dennis Maxwell adding an empty net goal in the final minute. Shaun Peet was also a stellar performer for the Generals. He notched an assist and was on the ice for all four Generals goals for a +4 rating. The Generals victory officially eliminated the Renegades from the playoffs.
"Generals University" will be at Brooks Global Elementary School in Greensboro on Monday, and Sumner Elementary School on Tuesday and Wednesday. "Generals University" has been designed by the Generals to teach children in third and fourth grade about diversity in sports. There are 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, and will continue past the Generals regular season.
