QUICK BITS

BACK TO SATURDAY:

The Greenville Swamp Rabbits fell to the Florida Everblades Saturday night in a 5-4 contest. Greenville struck early, scoring the first two goals within the first six minutes of play. Liam Pecararo scored the first on a power play 4:30 in, followed by Max Zimmer at the 5:42 mark. Atlanta would score two in the period, temporarily tying the game before a Bobby Russell goal at 18:40 in the first. The second period would see the Swamp Rabbits extend their lead, thanks to a beautiful backdoor feed from Gavin Gould to Bobby Russell. The game would slip away from Greenville in the third period. Florida scored three unanswered, courtesy of Ben Masella, Xavier Bouchard and Dylan Vander Esch. It was a scrappy game from start to finish, both teams combined for 17 penalties and only scored on five power play attempts; three for the Swamp Rabbits and two for the Everblades. 

SCOUTING ATLANTA:

The Swamp Rabbits face the Atlanta Gladiators in Duluth, Monday night. Monday marks the second matchup between the clubs, the first ending in a 7-5 Gladiators victory.  The Gladiators hold a 5-1 record, averaging 3.83 goals per game. Atlanta’s power play has struggled so far this season with just a 12% conversion rate. Goalie Tyler parks has played well thus far, stopping 92% of shots, with a 4-1 record. The leading goal scorer for Atlanta is Cody Sylvester (4), Luke Nogard leads the team in points with one goal and six assists. 

DELIGHTFUL DIEGO: 

Diego Cuglietta joined the Swamp Rabbits just six days ago on November 9th, and is already proving his worth. Cuglietta, who had zero points in five games with the Indy Fuel in 2021, has four assists in three games with Greenville. Contributing on three of the four Swamp Rabbits goals Saturday night. Cuglietta also assisted the third goal of Thursday’s win over the Icemen, dishing to Tommy Besinger, who put the nail in the coffin for a 3-1 Swamp Rabbits Victory. 

MAZ EFFICIENCY:
