LAST WEEK’S RECAP

Overall Picture: The Greenville Swamp Rabbits (20-17-6), proud ECHL affiliate of the New York Rangers and the AHL’s Hartford Wolf Pack, gained four points in four games last week and maintains fourth place in the South Division as the club enjoys its All-Star break through Thursday. Greenville is one point behind South Carolina for third in the division, but currently holds a playoff spot with a four-point cushion over Reading in the Eastern Conference.

The Swamp Rabbits opened the week in successful fashion when goaltender Allen York put on a clinic and stopped all 31 shots he faced en route to a 1-0 whitewash of Atlanta on Monday afternoon. It was Greenville’s second shutout of the season and the ninth of York’s professional career. Offensively, Scott Fleming netted the only goal with a rebound tally at 5:30 of the third period.

The Gladiators got revenge on Tuesday when their top line of Derek Nesbitt (1g, 3a), Thomas Frazee (1g, 3a) and Garry Nunn (2g, 2a) accounted for 12 of the team’s 17 points in a 6-2 Swamp Rabbits loss at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena. Michael St. Croix and Justin DaSilva found the score sheet for Greenville, while Atlanta’s Kent Patterson made 31 saves for his team-leading 12th win of the season. Continue reading

BY: Alan Fuehring, Greenville Swamp Rabbits

Joey Holka also chipped in a goal and two assists as the Swamp Rabbits improved to 4-1-0 against the Stingrays this season.

BOX SCORE

The intensity picked up right off the draw when Tyler Elbrecht and Marcus Perrier dropped the gloves in line with the opening face. The tilt brought a hefty crowd to its feet, which the Stingrays used to score just 18 seconds into the contest. From behind the cage, David Pacan attempted a wraparound that was stopped by goaltender Allen York, but the second chance came right back to Pacan who lifted a shot past York’s blocker.
