ECHL Hockey returned on Friday night with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits winning a 3-2 overtime thriller over the in-state South Carolina Stingrays. Max Novak opened the scoring for the Stingrays at 6:48 of the second period, and Bryan Moore answered for the Swamp Rabbits at 9:07. Tied at 1-1 in the third period, South Carolina jumped back out in front, 2-1, on Caleb Herbert's first goal of the season. But in his pro debut, blueliner Ben Finkelstein tied the game on a 4-on-3 power play goal at 8:08 and won the game in overtime at 3:11 for the Upstate.

Nick Saracino scored for Jacksonville early in the third period on a power play which later stood as the game-winner. Mike McNamee countered with a power play goal to again push Greenville within one.
