Big game for the Rabbits on Friday night, after splitting the opening set of games in Jacksonville, they then were on the wrong end of a 7-4 scoreline in the first game in Greenville so, win tomorrow night and it's back to Jacksonville all square, lose and they have a mountain to climb
So the season ends for Greenville with defeat against Jacksonville. Disappointing but it was a tough match up in a tough division. Will be interesting to see turnover of staff this summer as it’s been an up and down year for the team
Quick update on the start of the season for the Rabbits and it's been a decent start for them with 3 wins in the first 4 games. They actually won their first three but then came a cropper against Atlanta in their last outing. Mark Louis has been doing Big Lou things, solid in defence and showing his toughness in a fight with Jacob Graves: https://x.com/atlgladiators/status/1719876095065878852?s=20
15 games deep into the season and the Rabbits have been on a tear. 9 wins in their last 10, tied with Idaho for the best overall record in the ECHL and only 2 defeats all season. Clearly early days but Lordo is getting a tune out of a rather disparate group of players and they are playing with great discipline, a focus on puck possession in the offensive zone and a clinical edge.... remind you of any team?
Quick update with 19 games down. No real change, the Rabbits have won 9 out of 10, 16 out of 19 and top the ECHL by a veritable country mile. I have caught a few games in the last few weeks and they are very much a Lordo team, unrelenting and when 'on it' very difficult indeed to get through. Mark Louis has not played in the last month but I am not sure why but elsewhere, as good a start as any coach could wish for.
