Generals beaten on road
Chiefs 6, Generals 1
Greensboro News & Record – March 31, 2002
JOHNSTOWN, Pa. - The number 11 is most often associated with football or soccer, both sports that feature that many players on a side.
However, the Greensboro Generals had two number us working against them on Saturday night, and the result was a 6-1 loss to the Johnstown Chiefs in an ECHL game.
The Generals, already decimated by injuries and suspensions, had Dennis Maxwell sitting out after three game-misconduct penalties on Friday night. That had the team down to 11 healthy skaters available.
Greensboro also was stricken by penalties, giving Johnstown 11 power-play opportunities. They converted on three of those, a big difference in the game. The power-play chances were the second-most against Greensboro this season.
Mike Johnson, a goalie who joined the Generals earlier this week after his season at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst ended, had a tough professional debut. He faced 48 shots, many of them from point-blank range, and stopped 42 of them. Greensboro managed only 18 shots on the night.
The Generals will close the year in Winston-Salem today at 3 p.m. with a game against the Charlotte Checkers at the Joel Coliseum Annex. The contest will be the team's final one in Winston-Salem for the foreseeable future, as all home games next year will be played in Greensboro.
