The Road Warriors (5-5-0) host South Carolina (8-4-0) tonight for the second of 16 scheduled meetings between the clubs.

Greenville’s Jeff Prough has scored a goal in each game so far this month and had two points (1G, 1A) on Thursday night. He needs three more goals to reach 100 for his ECHL career.
