February 10, 2020 - ECHL (ECHL) - Greenville Swamp Rabbits News Release

WEEKLY RECAP

Hertz Arena has proven to be a house of horrors for the Greenville Swamp Rabbits, dating back to the Road Warriors days and years back. This past weekend proved those apparitions were still in attendance, as the Everblades flaunted their muscle, extending their standings point streak to 12 games in the process.

Friday night saw the Swamp Rabbits hold the 'Blades to a 1-0 score after one period of play, but in the end, Florida scored six unanswered. The vice grip on the game held throughout, as the Swamp Rabbits were able to muster two goals in the closing ten minutes of action from Karl El-Mir and Jake Horton. However, it was too little, too late, as the Everblades' five-goal second period proved to be too much to handle.

Looking for a bounce-back effort on Saturday night, it was unfortunately more of the same. The Everblades struck early in the first period, just like the night before, and kept pouring it on. Florida held a 4-0 lead heading into the third period. Nathan Perkovich added a third-period tally to cut into the lead, but Florida responded 90 seconds later to cap the scoring.

2/7 at Florida Everblades - L 6-2

RABBIT TAILS

With a point on Friday night, Michael Pelech now trails Sean Berkstresser by six points for 7th in all-time Greenville hockey scoring. He trails Brandon Wong by nine assists for 6th all-time in assists.

Luke Ripley made his return off of Injured Reserve on Saturday night in Estero. It was the defenseman's first action since November 27 in Jacksonville.
