Generals Weekly Notes

March 1, 2010 - International Hockey League 2 (IHL 2) - Flint Generals News Release

On The Record: The Generals had a tough week, managing only 1 win in 4 games, but on a positive note, that win came on the last day of the month so they will be heading into March on a positive note.

More From Mori: John Mori was the strongest player for the Generals during the month of February. In 12 games he tallied 18 points (9 goals and 9 assists), and that is with him going three straight games without a point. He was named IHL Player of the Week for week nineteen and IHL Rookie of the Week for week seventeen.

Playoff Hopes: The Gens have had a rough week and yet are still in the hunt for the final playoff spot. They are tied with Dayton for 6th place and are 11 points behind 4th place Bloomington with 21 games remaining. If they can return to the kind of play they'd demonstrated throughout February, the Gens have a great shot and nabbing that final slot.

Competing With The Best: Flint has shown this season they have the ability to compete and beat the best teams in the league. In their last 5 games against Port Huron they are 4-1-0-0 and they ended Muskegon's 10 home game win streak last weekend.


~ John Mori has 2 goals in the last 2 games and has 13 points in the last 6 games

Thursday players will be visiting Elms Road Elementary to read to classes for reading month.

They will be at Holly Academy Friday again for reading month.

This Week On The Ice: The Generals host Port Huron this Wednesday as they look to not only really make a push for the playoffs, but to extend their recent success against the IceHawks.

Saturday they host Fort Wayne and then head to play the Komets in Indiana Sunday for a 5:00PM faceoff.
