ECHL Stingrays, On Verge Of Record Breaking Streak


The South Carolina Stingrays of the East Coast Hockey League beat the Greenville Warriors by the score of 3-1 yesterday to extend the franchise’s winning streak to 16 games. The Stingrays play the Gwinnett Gladiators three times this weekend for a chance to break a league record.

If the Rays beat the Gladiators on Friday night on the road at the Gwinnett Center Arena, they will tie the league record, which is held by the Cincinnati Cyclones who won 17 consecutive games back in the 2007-08 season. The new league record could be officially broken with a win against the Gladiators in front of the home crowd at the North Charleston Coliseum this Saturday night.
