LET’S MAKE IT THREEThe Stingrays extended their win streak to three straight games to open the year with Friday night's victory. This marks only the fifth time in the franchise’s 30 years that a team has started the season with three or more wins in a row. The last time South Carolina started a season this hot was the 2019-20 season when the team also won three in a row before falling in game number four.
A POWER-FUL TEAMEntering last weekend, the Stingrays' power play was ranked 13th in the league after scoring on 22.2% of their chances. The team was able to increase that by over 5% this past weekend and move into 7th place in the league following a 3-for-9 performance on the man advantage.
THE HAŠ SLINGING GOAL-SCOREDefenseman Martin Haš made his pro hockey debut during Saturday night’s contest and netted his first career goal in the process. The Czech native was signed by the Stingrays’ AHL affiliate, the Hershey Bears, on October 8th and was sent to South Carolina last week ahead of the weekend games.
