Swamp Rabbits Weekly #18 (2019–20)

WEEKLY RECAPHertz 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 6-22/8 at Florida Everblades - L 5-1UPCOMING GAMESGreenville Swamp Rabbits at Jacksonville IcemenFriday, February 14 - 7:00 p.m.ListenWatchGreenville Swamp Rabbits at South Carolina StingraysSaturday, February 15 - 6:05 p.m.ListenWatchUPCOMING PROMOTIONSFriday, February 21 vs Worcester Railers (7:05 p.m.)Fluor Golf for Greenville presents Military Appreciation Night + Postgame Jersey AuctionBUY TICKETSSaturday, February 22 vs Worcester Railers (7:35 p.m.)Nickelodeon Night (PAW Patrol Jerseys) + Guns N Hoses Night + Pucks 'N' Paws Night + Family 4 Pack + Postgame Jersey AuctionBUY TICKETS - BUY FAMILY 4 PACKPLAYER OF THE WEEKJake Horton - 2 GP | 1 G - 0 A - 1 PWhile he only had one goal on the weekend, Jake Horton was the hardest working player on the ice in the two games in southwest Florida.
