GREENVILLE, S.C. – The Greenville Swamp Rabbits tied their franchise record for longest point streak at 12 in a 2-0 shutout win over the Jacksonville Icemen on Sunday at Bon Secours Wellness Arena. The win marks the longest point streak in Greenville professional hockey history, surpassing the 1999-2000 Greenville Grrrowl.
After a scoreless 40 minutes, Greenville broke the ice on a power play late into the final period. Swamp Rabbits forward Patrick Bajkov threw a shot on goal from the right circle and danced into the low-slot to bury his own rebound at 13:47.
In the final minute, Mike McNamee raced up ice and buried the empty net goal to complete Greenville’s 2-0 shutout win at 19:41. Bednard’s shutout marked his first of the season, and third in his professional career.
The 12-game point streak is now shared with the 1993-94 Johnstown Chiefs before the franchise relocated to Greenville in 2010.
The Swamp Rabbits return to action on Wednesday, February 3 to kickoff a home-and-home against the South Carolina Stingrays. Both teams will battle Wednesday night at the North Charleston Coliseum before rematching in the Upstate on Thursday.
