QUICK BITS

WEEKEND RECAP:

The Swamp Rabbits hosted the South Carolina Stingrays on Saturday night, Outdoors night at the Well. South Carolina got out to a hot start in the first and despite a multitude of scoring chances, the Swamp Rabbits were locked-down on the defensive side of the puck, stopping all first period scoring chances for the opposition. The second period took a turn for the worse as the rays scored three goals thanks to two goals by Nick Issacson and one from Gregg DiTomasso. Derek Gentile extended the lead in the third before Johnny Coughlin was able to cut the lead back to three, his first goal as a Swamp Rabbit. Ryan Dmowski sealed the victory with an empty net goal before time expired, capping off the score at 5-1. 

SCOUTING THE ADMIRALS:

The Bits will face the 15-21-2-2 Norfolk Admirals on home ice on Wednesday night. Norfolk has won just three of the last 10 games.

Pecararo’s streak is the longest the ECHL has seen in six seasons. Pecs also tacked on four additional points early in the season, bringing his 2021-22 total to 34 points in 25 games (18g, 16a).
