LAST WEEK’S RECAP

Overall Picture: The Greenville Road Warriors (37-29-4), proud ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, won two of three games against Gwinnett last week to avoid elimination and continue their playoff push into the final week of the regular season.

The Road Warriors came out firing on Thursday and scored just 95 seconds into the contest when Anthony Luciani ripped a low shot inside the left post directly following a face-off for his team-leading 25th goal of the season. However, the Gladiators responded with back-to-back tallies from rookie Daniel Bahntge, his first two professional goals, to stun Greenville 2-1 at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. It was just the fifth time all season the Road Warriors have fallen when scoring first.  Continue reading

Duluth, GAThe Greenville Road Warriors (37-29-4), proud ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, jumped out to an early two-goal lead on Saturday, but had to scratch and claw down the stretch for the second straight night to earn a 5-4 shootout victory over the Gwinnett Gladiators (19-44-7) at The Arena at Gwinnett Center.

Anthoni Lucani (2g) and Josh Nicholls (1g, 1a) each produced a multi-point effort, while Dallas Jackson netted the shootout winner.

With the victory, the Road Warriors continue to sit four points behind Orlando for the final playoff spot in the East Division. The Solar Bears defeated Reading at home on Saturday. Consequently, Greenville can tie Orlando in the standings if the Road Warriors win out and the Solar Bears do not earn another point. Greenville would hold the tie breaker (non-shootout wins) in that situation.
