Swamp Rabbits Weekly #5 (2019-20)

November 11, 2019 - ECHL (ECHL) - Greenville Swamp Rabbits News Release

WEEKLY RECAP

The Greenville Swamp Rabbits had a tough test ahead of them last week in the South Carolina Stingrays, who led not only the South Division out of the gate, but set the pace for the entire ECHL. They flexed their mighty muscle in Greenville and picked up all four points and remained at the top of the South.

Parker Milner entered Friday night's game on a shutout streak, and continued it. The Swamp Rabbits generated 23 shots on goal, but Milner turned them all aside for his second shutout of the season. The Stingrays scored three times in the final frame to put the game out of reach, even behind a strong effort from goaltender Ryan Bednard.

Even after allowing the first two goals of the game in the second period, the Swamp Rabbits showed resilience to get it to a tie. Mason Baptista scored his first in a Greenville uniform early in the second period, and in crunch time, Chad Duchesne posted his first of the season to get the game to a rousing overtime session.

In the shootout, Rays forward Andrew Cherniwchan was the only player to score in the five-round skills competition. The Swamp Rabbits came away with one out of a possible four standings points on the weekend.
