WIN OR GO HOME

BY: Ray Schmitt, Voice of the Greenville Road Warriors

The Greenville Road Warriors host the Florida Everblades tonight in Game Three of their best-of-five Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. Faceoff is scheduled for 7:35 p.m. at the BI-LO Center.

The Road Warriors (88 pts., 4th place Eastern Conference) host Florida (85 pts., 5th place Eastern Conference) tonight for the third game of their Eastern Conference quarterfinal series. Fans can follow the action by watching live on America One or listening at www.greenvilleroadwarriors.com. Greenville trails the series 2-0 after falling 4-2 in Game Two in Florida on Wednesday night. Florida was 2-for-4 on the power play and led the game wire-to-wire. Marc-Olivier Vallerand was flying high for the Road Warriors and scored a pair of goals; one on the power play and the other one second after a successful penalty kill. The two goals were a career high for Vallerand in the playoffs and, including last season, gave him five goals in his last five Kelly Cup Playoff games. Chris McKelvie has a point (1G, 1A) in each of the first two games in the series and now has four points (2G, 2A) in his last six Kelly Cup Playoff games dating back to last season.

TWO POINTS ARE TWO POINTS

Connecticut-Whale_thumb_thumb_thumb_      VERSUS      Manchester

The Connecticut Whale should be happy they came away with the two points they got for the 5-3 win Sunday afternoon in Manchester when they faced the Monarchs at the Verizon Wireless Arena, because they certainly weren’t going to be getting any style points – if there was such a thing.

“It’s going to be a grind, with a short night and travel last night,”  Whale head coach Ken Gernander told Brian Ring afterwards. “But the guys stuck with  it, got a big goal by Casey [Wellman], and we were able to get our two points.”
