Lightning prospect Brian Hart scored Greenville's lone goal in Saturday night's 5-1 road loss to the Reading Royals. It was Hart's team-leading 4th goal of the season, and he scored it from his office on the doorstep of the crease poking in a rebound. One encouraging development from Hart's assignment in Greenville is that he is emerging as that big body in front of the net that both the Crunch and the Lightning need.
Riding a four-game losing streak, the Swamp Rabbits needed Allen York to come out and pitch a sparkling performance in net, but once again he allowed 5 goals including 4 in a deflating 2nd period. Greenville's nothing special teams were once again on display, allowing 2 power play goals on four attempts, and going scoreless on the power play in three tries. The Swamp Rabbits conclude their three game weekend road swing in a Sunday afternoon rematch with the Royals.
