Generals' home woes continue
Express 6, Generals 3
BY KEITH TOLBERT

GREENSBORO - Zero for four and counting.
The Greensboro Generals troubles at home continued Saturday night, as they lost to the Roanoke Express 6-3. The Generals have yet to win a home game in four attempts.
"We're just making stupid mistakes," said Greensboro coach Graeme Townshend. "It's not that we aren't working hard. It seems we don't have everybody working on the same thing at the same time."
Townshend suggested that if the trend of losing at home continues, he may have to make some personnel changes.
"I don't want to push the panic button," said Townshend. "I want to do it with the players we have, but we can't tolerate losing at home anymore."
Although both teams had road games Friday, the Express was far more aggressive in the first period, when Roanoke out-shot Greensboro 23-8.
"We felt as a team we had been struggling some lately," said Roanoke coach Perry Florio. "We addressed playing a complete 60 minutes and they executed it tonight."
After the Express scored two goals within a minute in the third period to take a 4-2 lead, the game became a fight-filled affair, featuring several penalties for both teams. "When they have a 4-2 lead, they can take certain liberties and try to get our best players off the ice," Townshend said. "It's smart hockey on their part."
