RABBIT TALES

The Greenville Swamp Rabbits, proud ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, begin their postseason journey tonight at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena versus their Palmetto State rival, the South Carolina Stingrays. The teams played 72 games during the regular season to earn a place in the 2017 Kelly Cup Playoffs and will look to add 16 more wins to the 40 each team tallied during the regular season in order to take home the ultimate prize and become the 2017 Kelly Cup Champions. Although the teams have a storied history, including 14 contests played during the 2016-17 regular season, they have never faced off in the postseason. South Carolina won the head-to-head matchup against Greenville with a 9-2-3-0 regular season record. Greenville’s five victories featured three overtime wins, including a 4-3 victory in the final meeting of the regular season in North Charleston on March 28th. This series is likely to be very close as Greenville averaged 3.50 goals for per game in the regular season while the Stingrays allowed only 2.90 goals per game, ranking second in the Eastern Conference behind Cincinnati.
