The Swamp Rabbit hit the road this weekend for a three-in-three, starting with a tilt against the Norfolk Admirals. The Admiral scored twice in the first and twice in the third to seal Greenville's fourth straight loss after a 3-1 start to their season. Allen York sat backup after a rough start to the season and the Rangers organization reassigning goalie Mackenzie Skapski from Hartford. What this means is that York will likely get just the Saturday night start this weekend, and more importantly no room for Lightning prospect Adam Wilcox. For the Swamp Rabbits, yet another game allowing 30+ shots, a defunct power play sitting at 12% that has allowed as many SHG as PPG scored, and a penalty kill sitting second-to-last in the league at 73.1%. Greenville travels to Reading for a two-night engagement with the Royals.

Not much good to say about the Swamp Rabbits tilt Sunday afternoon against the Florida Everblades. Allen York got the start but was pulled in the 2nd period after allowing 4 goals on 18 shots. York is still looking for his first win of the season and he's sporting almost 5 goals against in his 3 games thus far. For Syracuse Crunch fans and Lightning prospect followers, the Everblade trio of Mike Aviani, Kevin Lynch, and Gabriel Desjardins all contributed to the Greenville shellacking. Lightning camper Mike Aviani scored the first two goals of the game as part of a 4-point effort. Lynch also scored and added an assist as well, while Desjardins also added an assist. Greenville dropped all three games of their weekend home stand, falling to the cellar in the South Division at 3-4-0-0. The Swamp Rabbits hit the road next weekend for a Friday night game against Norfolk, followed by Saturday and Sunday games in Reading.

Brian Hart opened the scoring Halloween night at the Bon Secours Wellness Arena, his second goal in as many nights and third of his last four games. Hart once again scored from his greasy office on the goalies front porch. All three of Hart's goals this season have come in and around the blue paint. After building a 2-0 lead in the 1st period, the Swamp Rabbits would surrender three third period goals to the IceMen in a heartbreaker loss in front of their home crowd. Greenville threw 44 shots at Evansville netminder Scott Greenham, but Ottawa native shut the door after the first period to give his team a chance to rally. In net for the Swamp Rabbits was Adam Morrison, who was signed on October 23rd when Allen York was recalled to Syracuse following the recall of Kristers Gudlevskis to Tampa. Now with Kevin Poulin and Gudlevskis bot in Syracuse, it remains to be seen if Greenville might soon have Tampa prospect goalie Adam Wilcox supplant Morrison as York's partner in the crease. Greenville concludes their three game weekend homestand Sunday afternoon against the Florida Everblades.

A few familiar faces to Syracuse Crunch fans skated into the Bon Secours Wellness Arena Sunday afternoon with the Florida Everblades to take on Brian Hart and the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. But Hart and his fellow Swamp Rabbits held Kevin Lynch, Mike Aviani, and Gabriel Desjardins all off the score sheet rallying from a two-goal deficit to complete the sweep of their weekend slate. After surrendering the first two goals, New York Rangers forward prospect Josh Nicholls scored twice for the Swamp Rabbits to knot the game at 2-2. Late in the 3rd, tough guy Emerson Clark, a former Windsor teammate of Slater Koekkoek, scored the game winner for Greenville to seal the victory. Syracuse depth defenseman Charlie Dodero assisted on Nicholls' second goal. Greenville has a three-game home stand next weekend against Atlanta, Evansville, and Florida.
